“Sexuality is a gate to the Divine realms, but it still is unrecognised as so by the current culture. In the ancient Temple Arts sexuality was practiced as a key to open portals into other dimensions but this knowledge was mostly forgotten. Sacred Sexuality is a living temple, where we can give our separate egos as an offering on the altar, expand in love, download visions, create magic, heal traumas and surrender”. Ohad Pele Ezrahi
Ohad Pele Ezrahi is a lead faculty in ISTA. He has been teaching Kabbala, Sacred Sexuality, Love and Conscious Relating for 30 years. His life partner is Dawn Cherie, also lead faculty in ISTA. He comes from a background of being a Kabbalist Rabbi and a scholar for many years. In 2000 he was a Rockefeller Foundation fellow in the University of Eugene, Oregon, in a research program called “Science, Gender and the Sacred”. In 2012 the most popular newspaper of Israel “Yediot-Achronot” announced him as one of the ten leading spiritual teachers of the country.
Ohad is the author of several books, (mostly in Hebrew) one of them is a revolutionary research on the sacred aspect of Lilith – the wild-dark feminine force, which holds the secrets of healing human sexuality. Another book is exploring the erotic concepts behind the ancient Temple of Jerusalem and the way this knowledge was used in meditations in ancient jewish mysticism of the Merkaba.
Before joining ISTA he was heading “Neviah – the Hebraic Academy of Universal Spirit” in Tel Aviv, and together with Dawn Cherie is the co-founder of “KabaLove – The School of Love and Kabbala”.
A major part of his work is to reestablish the Temple Arts of the Kadesh and the Kedesha, the priests and priestesses that were working in the temples of Astarte and Asherah in the ancient middle east. His book KEDESHA is a historical novel, a page turner, that reveals the hidden conspiracy that brought an end to those arts in the 7th century BCE and bright forward the monotheistic religions instead. (English edition published in 2018)
Ohad’s spirit name is Pele, which in Hebrew means Wonder or Miracle.
He is also an artist, photographer and a song writer. His first album “Something out of Chaos” includes the tantric song Mikdash that is deduceated to Yoni-Tasing rituals. His 2nd album“Cosmic Snake” includes the songs “Captain Crazy” (lyrics by Bruce Lyon) and “Cosmic Sneak”.
