ISTA Level 1 Croatia - Spiritual, Sexual, Shamanic Experience
Welcome to the first ISTA Level 1 facilitated in beautiful sunny Croatia!
**Are you ready to transform your life? This experiential 7-day event is for you**
This life changing transformational intensive focuses on allowing, through clear consciousness, the integration of all aspects of our Being; mind, body, sexuality, emotions and spirit. The deep transformation comes through reconnecting with our personal power by clearing the physical and emotional body of shame, guilt and fear related to our sexuality and authenticity. The transformation is supported through multiple pathways using the best of the ancient temple arts, including Tantra, Taoist, Kundalini energy and Shamanism. We add to this more modern day techniques such as NLP, bioenergetics, guided visualisation, emotional release tools, and conscious touch/consent skills. The inner masculine and inner feminine archetypes are explored, because when they are fully integrated, a door opens to a deeper knowing of the Self as whole and complete. The list above includes many, but not all the practices we use to dive deep into the inner realms.
Spiritual... Sexual ....Shamanic ... each of these three areas carry enormous potential for liberation, freedom, love and joy. But they can also have a shadow and represent misuse of power. A team of skilled Temple Arts Faculty will share, inspire, guide and support you to bring light to the shadows where your power awaits to be reclaimed. You will receive information, guidance and lots of experiential practice around self love, boundaries, consent, emotional release, voice dialogue, neurological reprogramming, Orgasmic Yoga, shamanic tools, owning one’s desires, the ability to manifest, accessing and speaking from your contra-sexual self (i.e gender opposite), conscious communication, Transformational Shamanic Breathwork, ancient rituals of healing/initiation and powerful sexual clearing/activation processes.
This intensive is a well-designed and well-honed programme that unfolds within a powerful group process based on safety, trust, unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising. By the end of the week, you will feel more in touch with your body, more aliveness and presence, more aware of your patterns and how to change them, more awareness of your emotions and how to hold them, lighter and perhaps more relaxed. You will be more in touch with effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like.
Couples, individuals and relationship groups of any formation are welcome, as are individuals of any sexual orientation and gender identity. The greater mix of prior experiences the richer the training! If it is your truth, it is possible to complete the entire training/experience without touching another person.
ISTA Level 1 is a safe container that will allow, invite and offer you:
�• The opportunity to stop, feel and take a look at yourself in a whole new way, whatever your life situation may be. This is an opportunity to wake up to your life.
• An invitation to take risks, meet and explore your edges.
• Essential life skills we all should have received as teenagers.
• A space for you to see, show and live from the ‘you’ that lies beneath the mask. You will see more clearly where you are operating from ego and belief patterns of others and society.
• A view into where your inner masculine and inner feminine may be immature, unhealthy or at war. It will guide you to bring them back towards union, love and integration. This is huge!
• An invitation to reconnect to and learn to love your emotional body and heart power…as well as your physical self.
• A vision of your glorious Energy Being, with skills that allow you to dance with this energy body alongside your physical body.
• The ability to seek wisdom from your body and heart, instead of your mind.
• Powerful opportunities for healing core wounds.
• A reminder of how to love yourself, to feel the healing power of pleasure, with ways to expand your sexuality and orgasmic potential.
• The deep understanding that sexuality and spirituality are one.
• Opportunities for deep healing around lost love, sexuality, grief, self love and mother and father wounds.
A spotlight on how culture, religion and society has kept us from expressing who we really are.
• Powerful rituals that bring deep healing and power reclamation.• An opportunity to consider what your life might look like, if it was not controlled by society’s expectations, ego, family, fear, shame and guilt.
• The knowledge of what it truly is to be a sovereign being.
**Who Takes This Intensive?**
�Life's core experiences and wounds are universal. They touch and affect individuals of all ages, cultures, backgrounds and race. Thousands of people on 5 continents have attended the ISTA trainings and have been radically changed for the better by uncovering reactive patterns and wounds and transforming them into conscious ways of being. All ages are welcome, from 18 to 100, couples and individuals, all backgrounds and professions, sexual orientations and paths, gender identities, religions, races and nationalities.
�Some people take this training for their own personal evolution, to gain a deeper self-connection and to enrich their relationships and empower their lives. Others are interested in exploring how it will add to their own professional life whatever that may be. Some are interested in the professions of Sacred Sexual Practitioner or Sexuality Educator. The greater mix of prior experiences the richer the training.
�**What do I need to know?**
�No prior knowledge of shamanism or sacred sexuality is necessary to attend. Those with previous experience are warmly welcomed, as they add to the power of the field.
�**What will I have to do?**
�Nudity and intimate touch are optional parts of this training. The cornerstone of this work is about consent, developing healthy boundaries and communication. You are always at choice (free to choose) and the facilitators will help you navigate what is authentic for you. If it is your truth, it is possible to complete the entire training experience without touching another person or taking your clothes off.
We Ask You This Question: Are You Ready to Jump Off the Edge?
�We are so often at the precipice of something we have wanted to do, embody or achieve...... and we remain at the proverbial edge of the cliff, peering over the side, looking at the unknown below, searching with our mind for the answers. The mind has no real answers. And so we are afraid. We may let our feet leave the ground, but more often than not we return to our comfort zone...because we are too afraid to feel the pain...really feel it all the way...and enter the gateway of new possibilities. What if you could jump when your being, your heart and your spirit knew it was time to change? In this training you will come to a point where you can choose, completely, resolutely and without reservation, to fling yourself off the rock.....and transform your life.
�What's your edge? Are you ready to jump? What's getting in your way? To find out….come and do this training. It will take you to your edge, expand you and change your life forever.
The ISTA facilitators are looking forward to meeting you in Love, Power, and Freedom.

So you can calmly enjoy the breathtaking nature, summer sun, incredible legends, architecture, wine and seafood.
For this gathering we are taking you to the river Krka area.The largest part of this amazing river’s course is the national park, which in addition to its natural phenomena abounds with cultural and historical monuments. The most outstanding of these is the Franciscan monastery on the tiny island of Visovac, set in the middle of the lake widening in the river like a precious stone. In the middle of the canyon, upstream of the river, is an interesting Krka Orthodox monastery; while on the high ground above the river several old ruins sit. The old mills, which have been transformed into small ethnographic museums where one can see how wheat was ground in the olden days, are a popular attraction for visitors.

****This is an individual process that happens in a group environment and a level of ability to be self responsible is needed to navigate the spiritual sexual shamanic space. ISTA is a mystery school and approaches trauma from the shamanic perspective of connecting with the body and soul. We recommend that if there is known deep seated trauma, individuals seek one on one sessions and get the ok from their therapist before entering the group process.****
