The trainings are held by facilitators with different backgrounds, that come together to offer the best of their practices to empower and support your inner work and give you a transmission of embodied spirtitual and shamanic practice.

ISTA is committed to modelling power sharing, facilitating in trios supported by a core team of assistants.


This skilled Temple Arts Faculty- all international teachers- will share, inspire, guide and support you to bring light to the shadows where your power awaits to be reclaimed.

Co Facilitator

Ashisha is a native german speaker, born in Austria and has traveled the globe to find the universal language, turned towards the imagination of the heart, the language of the inner space. 


To support souls to awaken to their eternal core fire has become her primary calling in life.



Lead Facilitator

A native New Zealander with a global heart, Rex Rafiq has been leading transformational programmes for 25 years.


He has a solid reputation for leading potent rites of passage and known for his wise and playful style and ability to hold people with love while they shed their skin.



Co Facilitator

Dawn is an American living part time in America- NYC and teaching internationally.


Her work is focused on enlivening people to live love at their great power, using methods of movement, ritual and theater.


She also serves this vision as a lead facilitator for ISTA.



The beautiful venue lies literally in the heart of Europe, situated in the bavarian country side, between soft hills, surrounded by fields and forest. 

This gem in the bavarian forest national park is located in beautiful southern Germany, between Nuremberg and Prague and aprox. 200km from Munich in a small village called Schönsee. 
Reachable by public transport and shuttle/taxi.


The venue has been a place of community and exploration of love since 2014 and has become one of the heart centers for retreats in the realms of conscious connection, contact impro, tantra and conscious sexuality in southern Germany.

We are hosted by the Nature Community in a traditional Bavarian style hotel/ guesthouse.

The hotel offers single, double and triple rooms as well as dorms with ensuite bathrooms.

To be ready for the Level 2 journey, Level 1 needs to be integrated.
Many people repeat L1 one or more times before coming to L2.
There are good reasons for this. There needs to be a strong sense of a personal self before entering into the transpersonal and soul realms and dying to over identification with the personal self.
