About the Event

Our much loved ‘Return to Eden’ festival is back again for 2019.

The annual ISTA New Zealand Tribal gathering is happening on 5 - 7 April, at Highden Temple, New Zealand.

A beautiful opportunity to meet, mingle and love up new and old tribe.

The theme is welcoming people back to Eden on Earth - A remembrance of what is possible when we trust in the mystery of life and live from the unfolding of the unknown.

2019 is about celebrating human beings coming back to the essence of who we are without the emotional baggage and blockage. Returning to innocence and ecstasy. An opportunity to feel this potential and allow the experience to ripple out in to our lives and communities.

Everyone is welcome! The event is suitable for beginners as well as those experienced in conscious sexuality. There is no requirement to be an ISTA graduate to attend the festival but it is an opportunity to meet and connect with the ISTA tribe. All sexual orientations are welcomed.

The event will be held at Highden Temple, Located in the Manawatu region, on 35 acres surrounded by rose gardens, green fields and protected ancient wild forest. “Highden is a place of love and freedom. A temple for the new era”. Bruce Lyon

We will have the usual jam-packed offerings, incredible entertainment, workshops, sacred rituals and delicious food.

Workshops will be guided by a range of international and local facilitators, entertainers and artists sharing their gifts over the space of a weekend. In areas such as such tantra, relating, kink, movement, meditation, dance, and sexuality.

But the best part is the opportunity to connect and spend time with each other. To feel the love and support for an expanding tribe, committed to coming together as love, to love and be love.

We have 30 Early Bird tickets available with a variety of accommodation options to match various budgets.
