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.
The Edge of Magic
9 - 11 December 2022
In Philip Pullman's classic story, 'His Dark Materials', every child has a 'daimon' that appears as a guardian animal to the soul's unfoldment through its destiny. This guide accompanies every child through life—from childhood to adulthood to elderhood—and serves as a companion for the soul's calling.
The Edge of Magic is a weekend-long portal for 10-14 year old boys to begin connecting to that calling, which can feel like an invisible puzzle piece of a world that is still arriving coming to meet the world that is here now.
This is an invitation to connect to that moment in time where we start hearing the soul's whispers, listening to the unique essence of one's gifts and— regardless of what messages an outer culture may tell us—we choose to anchor the voice of the invisible worlds within and the heart's intuition that says, "Magic is real."
Some of the magic we will explore:
• Purpose as living vibration - starting to sense the unique essence of your magic
• Soul allyship and brotherhood
• Communing with nature as a bridge to one's inner worlds
• The intuition and language of the heart
• Creating a talisman as an anchor for one's soul calling
• Embodying myth and archetypal energies
• Fire ceremony
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.
The Temple Training
30 January - 10 March 2023
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 2023 for the 4th instalment of the Ray 2 cycle.
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.
