I did my first level one in 2020. And it was like a rocket up my arse 😂. I'd done years of Freudian analysis, I was heartbroken by the end of my marriage and then suddenly through ISTA I was encouraged to feel everything, rather than think about everything and boy did I light up the nights sky. 


It shifted so much in me and after about three months of smashing pillows, hand screams and weird looks from my neighbours, I appeared as fuller version of myself and I've continued on this path since then.  


It's impacted so much for me,  including my work life, my friendships and of course my relationships. Which are all so much better than before.  I feel so much more safety, appreciation and authenticity in them all. 


In my view this is what our society needs. I asked myself what I could do to contribute. And the answer was to bring ISTA to Switzerland. So that's what I've done. Starting November 13th will be a eight day long intensive training, that will change your life if you let it.

What is ISTA?

The International School of Temple Arts (ISTA) is a loosely aligned organization of teachers that offers workshops, courses, and events focused on personal growth, spirituality, relationships, and intimacy. ISTA combines teachings from various spiritual and tantric traditions to create a holistic approach to personal development and transformation. ​


ISTA's programs often incorporate elements from tantra, shamanism, somatic practices, and other spiritual traditions to help individuals explore and expand their consciousness, deepen their connections with themselves and others, and cultivate greater awareness and authenticity.

The Training

ISTA Level One: The Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience (SSSex)

A week-long experience that provides essential teachings and experiences around sexuality, emotions and relationships. It gives us the kind of education we should all have received as a child.


As part of this, you will learn to feel, express and challenge all the parts of you. So that you can feel truly alive in your emotions and fully integrated in your body. Thus helping you with the full expression of your life.


As you come to welcome all the parts of you, you'll increase your ability to welcome all the parts of others. Allowing deeper relationships and greater community.


On top of this, you'll experience communicating your needs, desires and boundaries; you'll confront feelings of rejection, unhealthy patterns of relating and walk away feeling seen, heard and met in ways you may never have experienced before.  


If you are ready to transform your life, this experiential 8-day event is for you.

Our Local Tribe

Switzerland has an amazing and strong local tribe of ISTA Alumni who organise regular conscious sexuality festivals and events.


We encourage the Alumni not only attend in repetition but also to attend as training assistants.


So joining us in November will not only connect you to other participants, but also to the wider ISTA field and our strong local tribe.

Getting Here

Neo-Tantra, also known as modern or contemporary Tantra, is a movement that seeks to bring the teachings and practices of Tantra into a more contemporary context. This involves adapting and updating traditional Tantra practices to better align with modern cultural and spiritual values, as well as incorporating elements from other spiritual and therapeutic traditions.

Neo-Tantra often emphasizes the use of sexual energy and practices as a means of achieving spiritual growth and connection. However, it also includes a wide range of other practices, such as meditation, breathwork, and bodywork, aimed at promoting physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

One of the key features of Neo-Tantra is its focus on individual experience and personal growth, rather than strict adherence to a specific set of beliefs or practices. This approach allows for greater flexibility and creativity in how Tantra is practiced, as well as a more inclusive and accessible approach to spirituality.
