Soul to Soul 5Rhythms Retreat


This five day retreat will provide us with a unique opportunity to withdraw from our daily lives and open to where we are at on our soul journey. Through our dance we become aware of and move with what may be stuck and seeking change, physically, emotionally and mentally. We welcome the wisdom of the soul and embrace its path to embody wholeness and harmony and the unique role and contribution in this life.

“Your soul is a seeker, lover and artist; shape-shifting through archetypal energy, between your darkness and fields of light, your body and spirit, your heaven and hell, until you land in the moment of sweet surrender; when you, as a dancer, disappear into the dance.” Gabrielle Roth


Highden Temple is a Mystery School for soul initiation, leadership, magic and the creation of soul community. Built in New Zealand in 1897, Highden is surrounded by manicured gardens, a protected wild forest and a 28 stone mandala consciously embedded to hold the vibration of this work. Highden is a place where a new expression of culture, spiritual education and soul community come together; we are road testing a new map for civilisation that reflects an embodied approach to life, love and a sacred relationship with the earth. The journey of Highden is a journey of discovery into what it is to be human once we shed the striving of self actualisation and offer ourselves up to the ecstatic current of life, love and evolution. It is a place where awakening souls are drawn and converge through their own inner knowing.

From Facilitator: Alex Rodriguez
I was called to be part of this mystery school in its establishment phase in 2001 and it has been an important milestone on my journey. Since then the embodiment process of the energetic template at Highden has continued through the developments of the mystery school. And my individual journey continued through 5Rhythms which I have been teaching for almost 5 years. It is an exciting unfolding to be able to return to Highden and offer this retreat on a strong energetic foundation. We are in times of of transformation and quickening and this retreat will support the process of all who are called to participate.
