The Venue - Duvale Retreat

 The UK ISTA has been established for over 10 years. The SSSEx Level 1 was held  at Osho Leela in Dorset until 2017. Since 2018,  the ISTA events have found a new home at the amazing Duvale Retreat in Devon, where we return again  for the UK ISTA SSSEx (Level 1).


Duvale Priory is set in the beautiful Exe Valley, Devon. This venue has a huge converted cosy barn for the temple workshop space, lots of gardens, accommodation is in 4 large period country houses in a private retreat location, each with their own living and kitchen spaces. We are surrounded by the beauty of nature, ponds, trees and held in a valley womb for our journey.
