5Rhythms Retreat: Matariki: Mid-Winter Gathering
23rd-26th June 2022
with Alex Rodriguez
Each year at Matariki, we gather together to mark the appearance of this star cluster, (also known as the Pleiades), in the winter sky. This star cluster is significant in Aotearoa and in many cultures around the world and is one of the closest to our planet. It marks the end of the season and annual growing cycle and the beginning of a new one.
It is a special gathering, in the darkest time of the year, to express and share through 5Rhythms dance and embodiment practice, what we have harvested in our lives in the past year and an opportunity to explore the potential of the darkness and prepare fertile ground for the seeds of new growth in Spring. A time of creativity, Community and Connection.

— Nora Roberts

Wild Love is not an organisation or a creed but an irresistible movement - a stirring of the world soul experienced through each ecstatic heart
Wild Love is part of a global movement that commenced during 2020 in response to the great conjunction of Jupiter / Saturn and the stirring of the collective soul of the world.
Bruce Lyon and Winter Jade Icely are hosting a weekend experience for all genders, all relationship forms, all identifications, all expressions of human and non human alike.
What if Love became too wild for it's rib-cage?
What if World Love III broke out?
What if freedom was evolutionary - a spirit that built on all that was worth preserving in human civilisation and at the same time relentlessly bought forth new growth and shed the old skin..
What if these two energies combined , danced together and created the magical emergence of a radical new culture that had them as its root. What if this was what was really happening now? inside each of our hearts, bodies and souls.
The Temple Training
12 September - 22 October 2022
The Temple Training is a soul Initiation for pioneers of the heart. We open more deeply into the mysteries of love.
We explore the integration of love
through the three rings of spirit, soul and embodiment.
We gather in 2022 for the 3rd instalment of the Ray 2 cycle.
The Ray 3 core note is the active intelligence of LIFE through the web of intricacy- The core weaving of the soul.
At this time on the planet the earth is calling forth the pioneers of the heart- those beings willing to go into the unknown together - to open up new trails into the emerging mysteries of group soul initiation.
Wild love in action.
The Temple Training is a 6 week immersion at Highden Temple in Aotearoa (New Zealand).
It is for those who have already made progress on their path of liberation and embodiment.
It provides the opportunity to discover and demonstrate together the next step forward in the anchoring of the modern Temple and the cultivation of a new culture.
This is not just a workshop but an actual living experience in group soul - to be part of the source code of creative, loving, shamanic, ecstatic community.
Brotherhood- Rite of the Masculine Spirit
25 - 29 November 2022
**For Male Bodies
BROTHERHOOD is a living body of work, continuing to blossom on the land of Highden as well as internationally. Before the last initiation we held at Highden, the residents here journeyed this work together and new rites came through. This is ongoing initiatory work that is inseparable from the times we're living in.
This is a 5 day residential retreat at Highden Temple led by Regan Pryor, Jonathan Ehrlich and Josh Broadhurst (also supported by Highden residents and transmissions from Bruce Lyon)
From Bruce Lyon, on birthing this work: "I first led this work a few years ago in the Czech republic with 50 men from all over the world and it was an incredibly potent experience of transformation. It was like rain falling on a desert that didn’t even know it was so dry."
- - -
One of the things most missing on the planet is healthy, initiated men who know how to stand together and help birth a civilisation where the masculine and feminine energies are fully honoured, integrated and celebrated.
Like all transformations it begins as an inside job - offering ourselves to the evolutionary fires of initiation so that we become what we seek to bring into the world. This is the sacred journey of the modern spiritual warrior.
Old styles of masculine leadership are failing. Emerging leaders are comfortable with uncertainty rather than trying to control, they have trust in the unfolding mystery and can live the question rather than knowing the way.
16 - 22 January 2023
Magdalena is a seven day journey into the heart of the feminine mysteries through the initiations of LIFE and the ancient rituals that open the doors to this remembering.
Through the doorway of a surrendered heart we enter the temple of Magdalena, in devotion to all life, as love.
Together We will create a sacred and potent temple life with daily rituals, practices, and earth magic.
We will live and dance between the veils.
Over the seven days we will explore some the following teachings;
~ The mysteries of life, death and blood.
~ The psychic arts - divination,
dreaming and intuition.
~ Sacred ritual and temple arts.
~ Erotic wisdom, sexual activation and magnetism.
~ Living in alignment with the elements and deepening connections with the devic kingdoms.
~ Working with archetypal magic, stepping through and beyond the veils.
~ Embodiment medicine; harnessing life force, listening to the voice of the body, the alchemy of sensuality and pleasure.
~ The heart as a magical tool, sacred heart wisdom.
~ The feminine shadow and shamanic projection.
This is not a training of acquisition but an initiation into the core of LIFE through the veils of Magdalena and the mysteries of her temple.
