About ISTA
International School of Temple Arts

Over the past 10 years, ISTA have successfully undertaken a monumental task to bring the worldwide Sacred Sexuality Community together. ISTA is a non-profit organization founded in 2007 and is co-operated by a dedicated group of teachers in an Advisory Circle. Our North American ISTA Advisory Circle representative is Crystal Dawn Morris.

ISTA: International School of Temple Arts is committed to raising awareness in sexuality & consciousness across the globe to:

1) Grow community with a peer-to-peer network,

2) Offer conferences and trainings in all aspects of business to practitioners and teachers, and

3) Provide resources in the form of business tools and collaborations for the emergence of Temples.


This is an individual process that happens in a group environment and a level of ability to be self responsible is needed to navigate the spiritual sexual shamanic space. ISTA is a mystery school and approaches trauma from the shamanic perspective of connecting with the body and soul. We recommend that if there is known deep seated trauma, individuals seek one on one sessions and get the ok from their therapist before entering the group process.
