Take a peek at what people are saying about Thista as an educator, facilitator, and ritualist:
Thista’s passion is tangible in the work that she brings to the world. Her ritual work has, and continues to, transform lives.
– Lee Harrington, Author and Educator, PassionAndSoul.com
I have enjoyed attending Thista’s classes, and was impressed by her skill and willingness to tailor classes to the participants present. From the new and curious, to the novice, through experienced practitioners, she works to engage those present without presuming or condescending to their experience level. Thista brings an evident enthusiasm to her courses and attendees leave with new perspective and functional practices to enhance their practice.

I have VERY frequently been disappointed by national presenters despite rave reviews by others attending the same events; many times wondering how in the world others could possibly be talking about the same thing I was at. Thista Minai, however, is the real deal. I was at least partially in attendance at three of the four [classes] and I was overwhelmed by her knowledge, her communication skills, her delivery, her absolute professionalism as a lecturer. Being an old fart, errrr…I mean being as experienced as I am, I suppose one of the things that impresses me most about any kink presenter is how much useful info do I take home even about things I consider myself to be fairly accomplished at. In this area she earned top marks.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know your classes really resonated with me and they articulated things I had been feeling and found myself unable to express to others. The ordeal class especially touched me and to use your word, showed me a whole modality of relating to struggle and suffering that I think will be very valuable to me.
It was a pleasure meeting you this weekend. You had some of the most engaging and resourceful advice to share on the poly panel and your cathartic flogging class truly moved me. Thank you for being a great presenter.
I absolutely loved your class on Ordeal. It really made my mind race with so many ideas and questions. The spirituality of it all really resonated with me. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us.
It was a pleasure to meet you and learn from you this Fusion. I was quite moved by the Rites of Becoming. This experience has really spurred my interest in pursuing an understanding of the presently subtle limits of my endurance (in the sense that I don’t quite know all the places my mind and body can stretch to and all the ways/approaches my knots can be untangled in). I have so much more to learn and I’m excited to continue such exploration :3 Thank you so very much.
I greatly enjoyed both your Grounding/Centering class and the Relationship with Psychic Vampires class this past weekend, as well as talking to you afterwards. I learned a lot, and it sparked many thoughts on subjects I haven’t thought about in years (energy work, neopaganism), and it certainly inspired a lot of great conversation!

Thank you for your grounding, centering, and shielding class at Fetish Flea. It was a blessing during a long and chaotic weekend. I especially enjoyed having an opportunity to practice with you. I was surprised a couple of times when I think you sensed a question from me before I had the opportunity to raise my hand… I would really like to explore sacred sexuality and incorporating spiritual practice as part of my kink.
