5 – 11 January 2020

We are pleased to be returning to Tasmania after a sold out magical, inaugural training in January 2019.

Our tribe in Tasmania is growing.

The land is pulsing with love and ready for us to keep diving.


We have a powerful team coming together for our January 2020 training.

Ellie Wilde – Co-Facilitator

Wild child, Essex girl, Tantrika, Sexual Shaman, Poet, Artist, and Mother – Ellie Wilde has been exploring the field of Tantra and Conscious Sexuality personally for the last 20 years and professionally for the last 7.

A Certified Sexological Body worker and Somatic Sex Coach she has trained with the Institute of Somatic Sexology, Chuloquai Quodoshka, and the late World-renowned Women’s Sexuality teacher – Shakti Malan, Ellie also has extensive training and is a faculty member with the International School of Temple Arts (ISTA).

Based in New Zealand Ellie teaches a range of trainings and workshops both nationally and internationally for men, women and couples. She also has a successful private practice at her home in Mt Maunganui – Bay of Plenty NZ where she offers empowerment and coaching sessions and deep immersions for individuals and couples.

Ellie brings a depth of realness, and authenticity into her facilitation, and it is her personal story from abuse to sexual empowerment that passionately inspires her to support others with their intimate quest for liberation

“I create spaces and places for people to explore , desire, fantasy, pleasure, intimacy, authenticity, being real, and much more. I help people come home to themselves, let go of baggage, and societal roles, demands and conditioning.. some people have called what I do re-wilding…I think its just simply giving people the space to be who they are once they let go of who they are not.”



Regan Pryor – Co-Facilitator

Regan Pryor’s journey has taken him through a deeply embodied and felt sense of the vast spectrum of life experience available to us during these beautiful and challenging times on the earth. He has moved through an intensive investigation into the realms of relating, the domains of the corporate and creative industries as well as organic farming and permaculture lifestyle. After a deep calling to integrate his life experience and share more with the world through his men’s group and circle work, he discovered two great avenues to express his soul gifts and uplift and inspire the beings he came into contact with; Sacred sexuality and Youth work.

From this place of deep realisation and connection to his heart calling, Regan set out to run a retreat lodge in the Kaimais mountain range in N.Z. With seven years offering his space and holding space for youth work, week-long intensives, shamanic circles, sacred sexuality retreats and workshops, as well as festivals and community activities. His passion for inspiring youth as well as his dedication to awakening life force through spiritual, sexual and shamanic practices lead him to a long standing relationship with the International School of Temple Arts (I.S.T.A). Regan is now a member of the I.S.T.A faculty and lives at the Highden Mystery School in Awahuri N.Z. He is a passionate embodiment practitioner and offers his private sessions and group work from a deep place of integrity and authenticity; applying his deep sense of connection to the earth and his immense love for humanity and passion for awakening and inspiring the inner evolution and landing of the soul in body.

This is an individual process that happens in a group environment and a level of ability to be self responsible is needed to navigate the spiritual sexual shamanic space. ISTA is a mystery school and approaches trauma from the shamanic perspective of connecting with the body and soul. We recommend that if there is known deep seated trauma, individuals seek one on one sessions and get the ok from their therapist before entering the group process.
