ista dominican republic

As a mystery school, ISTA has worked its magic in exactly 45 different countries around the world. With deep gratitude to the guardians of the Land and guides of the Ocean of the Dominican Republic, I’m honored to announce that as of January of 2022, we officially broke ground in the DR!

Here is a monumental photo of the pioneering souls who came together to co-create this journey. We were a diverse group from over 12 countries: Sri Lanka, France, Israel, UK, US, Canada, Argentina, Australia, Germany, Colombia, and the Netherlands, there is even one circus performer who’s made their home in the Dominican Republic.

Thank you for taking all the necessary precautions to safely gather during these times, and for your willingness to take a risk. We felt a warm welcome from many unseen forces, and are looking forward to a deep ongoing relationship with the land and look forward to reaching out to more locals next year!

Spiritual Sexual Shamanic

Each of these areas carries enormous potential for freedom, love, and joy, as well as for healing & integrating our shadow. As we come to know all these aspects, we begin to see what it means to be awake, empowered, in community, and in-service as love in the world.

The transformation is supported through multiple pathways using the best of the ancient temple arts including the wisdom of Tantra, Taoism, and different traditions of Shamanism. We add to this modern-day techniques NLP, bioenergetics, guided visualization, emotional release tools, and conscious touch/ consent skills, and many other practices to dive deep into the inner realms. The inner masculine and inner feminine archetypes play a huge role and are explored because when they are fully integrated, a door opens to a deeper knowing of the Self as whole and complete.

This event unfolds within a powerful group process based on unconditional love, intimacy, and acceptance of what is arising. By the end of this event, you will feel more open, relaxed, and present and be more in touch with the effortless flow of life.
