♡ The People

Thousands of people on 5 continents have attended the ISTA training over the past 8 years and have uncovered core wounding reactive patterns, transforming them into conscious ways of being that enable them to respond from a place of empowered loving presence.

♡ The Retreat

This retreat focuses on clearing the physical, emotional and mental bodies of shame, guilt and fear related to life force energy, sexuality and authenticity. This is done through multiple pathways of healing: guided visualization, emotional release, shamanic initiations, energy tracking and conscious touch are just a few of the practices used to dive deep into the inner realms. 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 Event

This event unfolds within a powerful group process based on presence, unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising. By the end of this event, you will feel more alive, open, relaxed and present and be more in touch with the effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like.
