The Temple @ Highden is a modern mystery school for sacred living – a cross between the X- Men mansion, Hogwarts School of Wizardry and a Tantric Temple. It is a home for ceremony and magic. It is a place for love and freedom.
Highden is an Edwardian Manor built in 1898 surrounded by rose gardens, green fields and a piece of protected wild forest.
Built for a member of parliment as a country seat, Highden also served for fifty years as a seminary for novitiate priests in the Catholic church.
Today, the themes of leadership and spiritual education continue, updated for a world in need of a universal and embodied approach to life, love and a sacred relationship with the earth.
There is a large 28 stone mandala around the property marking the equinoxs, solstices and other astronomical and astrological alignments making it also a time-temple reflecting the relationship with cosmos.
When the Temple is not in session, Highden remains open to the public for functions, weddings, ceremonies and accommodation.

There will be space on this first programme for 24 participants. There is an application process and interview to ensure the group synergy is flowing and that the programme is suitable for each participant. If more people want to come than we can cater to then we will select based on experience and compatibility with our vision. We may run a second Temple Training in February 2018. We should make our final selection decision by March 21 2017 so that you have six months to prepare and plan your travel. If you feel this is for you please get your application in as quickly as you can.
Write for an application to: blyon7@gmail.com

NEW ZEALAND is a unique country to visit with a beauty and magic straight out of Lord of The Rings. The earth energies are strong and the land is gentle with no dangerous animals. In the absence of predators, the birds were able to fold their wings and live on the forest floor. It is a safe place for the soul to land – a turangawaewae ( sacred place to stand in Maori ). It is the first land to see the new dawn. Within two hours of Highden there are wild rivers, a huge lake, snow capped mountains, gorges, beaches and forests. you are also 15 minutes from a city, with airport, bus and train connections.
Some of you may fall so in love with what is happening here that we might invite you to stay and form part of it. Others will have given and received their gifts and be ready to take it into the world. Either way our intention is for you to be connected to source, deeply home in your soul knowing, rooted in the juicy wisdom of your body and the earth, equipped with the skills and experiences to effectively synergise with others. Together we become the seeds and weave the pattern our emergent vibrant global temple.
