Black Background
“The program was so well put together and orchestrated by the entire team. As this was my first event I feel so lucky to be taught and held by such an experienced facilitator. The safe space was amazing. These three days I was in a different place where I could learn, experience, try, feel, express myself so wholly. After the three days I brought this experiment with me to the real world where I felt empowered to express my desires and boundaries. The name of the event, Voyage into Presence, is truly well chosen and I am so grateful to be part of it. Whatever I do, wherever I am, presence is the key.”

This unique experience invites you to step away from the chaos of everyday life and immerse yourself in a sacred and connected space where you can experience:

Awakened Senses

Through sensory exploration and rituals, you will awaken your dormant senses and your primal power. Learn to appreciate the world in a new light. 


Dropping What Doesn’t Serve

Release the baggage that holds you back and experience a profound connection with the current of existence, yourself, and others.

Connection Through Wholeness

Balance your inner polarities (feminine/masculine, light/dark, etc). Learn how to bring the balance of energy through transformational, ritualistic, and healing processes. 

Authentic and Pleasurable Intimacy

Explore your desires and boundaries together in a deep and safe space. Expand what you thought was possible as your desires are enhanced by deeper presence.

Is This Training For You?

Are you easily distracted? Do you complete a task only to realize you’ve forgotten the process because your mind was a million miles away? Does life pull you in many directions at once? Do you agree to requests you’d rather decline?  Do you endure situations rather than respond with a full-bodied ‘yes’? Are you unsure of what you want? Do you worry your desires will keep others away? Do you spend more time in your head than in your body? Do you envy the power in others that you feel you can’t access in yourself? Do you find yourself doom-scrolling or engaging in unhelpful habits despite the will to change?

About Us

Darkstar Temple was secretly formed in the northern California woods under the stars surrounded by bears and gold veins. The initial mission was to bring dark-masculine energy to transformational, ritualistic, and healing spaces. Our co-founders recruited seven other members; only a few are known publicly. Today, Darkstar Temple designs experiences and rituals in multiple countries, states, and cities for large groups and individual seekers looking for profound, lasting shifts in their world.
