ISTA Level 1 – Victoria

April 10, 2021 - April 16, 2021

Are you ready to transform your life?

ISTA Level 1  is returning to Regional Victoria at the Camp of the Great Spirit – Staughton Vale this April
for 7 full days and 6 nights!
ISTA is a life force transmission for evolutionary times.
Our current climate is asking for us to drop even deeper within and live as the peaceful, delightful, shameless, fearless and loving humans we are with our bodies, communities, nature, sexuality, hearts, mind and spirit.
For 10 years ISTA has been running these life-changing initiations in over 35 countries.
ISTA works with spirituality and sexuality as two expressions of life force energy.
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, 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 Breath-work, ancient rituals of healing/initiation and powerful sexual clearing/activation processes.

ISTA Level 1  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.

Baanya Biami – meaning Camp of Great Spirit, is 80 minutes from the centre of Melbourne.
Located in a tranquil valley adjacent to the Brisbane Ranges National Park, Baanya Biami is 150 acres of bushland with Reilleys Creek flowing though. The accommodation and facilities are unique in their design with their construction over the decades honouring the environment around them.
Bridges over the creek lead people on a gentle meander further into the bush where creek flats, bush spurs and the extraordinary gentleness of the bush awaits to be discovered.
Longer hikes into the Brisbane Ranges are possible from Baanya Biami.
Baanya Biami has a gentleness which is felt by all those who visit. It is a place to disconnect from the fast pace of life and technology. It is a place to reconnect with our Earth, the bush, each other and ourselves.
