Level 1: 16th – 22nd March 2020


Your Facilitators

Three highly skilled Temple Arts faculty from around the world will teach, share, inspire, guide and bring light to the darkness in a serene and private retreat location.

Rex Rafiq – Lead Facilitator

A native New Zealander with a global heart, Rex Rafiq has been leading transformational programmes with men and women for 25 years. Founder of Essentially Men, the ground breaking mens work of Aotearoa New Zealand, co-founder of the Heart Politics Gatherings and author of Fatherless Sons (Harper Collins) and On Their Own (Finch) he is trained in group work, psychodrama, expressive therapies, co counselling and has a masters in Social Ecology. His experience has been honed from working extensively with groups in all kinds of settings from the wilderness to corporations, prisons to ashrams, and anywhere in the community people are showing up for wisdom. Over his life he has explored diverse mystery traditions, shamanistic practices and spiritual enquiry.

His outer world expressions have been diverse – from a young hunter living in the wilderness, to activism, street theatre, trainer, community catalyst and group leadership. 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.

Rex has stopped trying to improve himself…instead he has turned to loving the life force that is living him, which includes embodying the joy and transformative power of sexuality. He has moved into teaching with ISTA because his delight is to share community with kindred souls on this journey of loving life and he is drawn to contribute to the powerful transmission and embodied teachings that are evolving here

Stacy Lynn –  Apprentice Faculty

Stacy Lynn is a seeker, on the eternal path toward a deeper understanding of truth, love, and freedom. She is a masculine/ feminine shape shifter. She believes that wonder and marvel should be fundamental qualities of our lives.

Her playful and passionate spirit combined with clarity and coherence offers connection and guidance to anyone eager to take the deeper dive. Shamanism, Tantra, and the mystery schools, resonate in her core, opening the way to a deep remembrance of who we are and from where we all come. She has been a part of the ISTA Field since 2017. Sacred sexuality was the missing link in understanding the ancient wisdom in our cellular memory and cultivating a harmonious integration of the spiritual with the material.


A doctor of psychology by trade, she grafts together branches of science, insight, and ancient medicine to create a unique offering to the world. She plants seeds in the hearts of those she works with to assist them in better understanding themselves and their place in the higher consciousness of the world. Stacy brings ten years of experience running ongoing groups and teaching trainings. For the past three years, she has facilitated experiential workshops to help others explore more deeply into their awaking journey.

In addition to her academic qualifications, Stacy has professional training in EMDR, TRE, NPL, EFT, somatic therapies, breath work, body talk, trauma work, and sound healing. She has specialities in forensic psychology, chronic pain, addiction medicine, trauma, and LGBTQIA. She believes in using all the tools at her disposal in her specialized work with sovereignty based couples work, deprogramming the nervous system of childhood-imprinted beliefs, and drawing individuals out of their “heads” and into full embodiment. http://drstacyellis.com
