Expanded to twice as long as last year, the Gathering is a time to connect and strengthen the ISTA community, and build links between empowered and awakened people.

We offer: plenty of open time for play and connection, powerful and sexy daily ISTA-related workshops, a parallel age-appropriate kids’ program, and family-friendly gathering times.

The Gathering follows the first ISTA Family Fusion Experiment (July 24-31 at the same venue), and we are expecting families to join us from all over the world to participate in both sessions.

ISTA Tribal Gatherings are not-for-profit events created for the benefit of the community. We will be co-creating a full schedule of events, daily children's program, ceremonies and support / healing structures for our Tribal participants. If you would like to contribute in preparing for this event, or offer sessions, workshops, music, dance, or children’s programming during the gathering, please contact us at

Our low cost includes all meals and snacks, plus camping and/or indoor housing at our beautiful retreat center - 20 wooded acres with a gorgeous white-water river flowing through the site. There are various indoor housing options that will be offered to attendees on a first-come, first-served basis, while also accommodating people’s special needs. For attendees who wish a bit more privacy, there is a motel 3 miles up the road.

If you have any questions, feel free to email Alan and Sarah at
