Poly High Tea - Monday thru Saturday - 1:00p-3:00p
Just what is Poly High Tea? - First, it's a Tea Party. We will be serving Tea and Cookies...

All you Polyamorous, poly-curious, and poly-friendly folks out there on the playa are invited to join us for a discussion about the practical issues of loving more than one in an open, responsible multi-person relationship. There are many workable forms of Polyamorous relationship - polyamory is polymorphic! There is much wisdom in the poly community which can be helpful to people trying to make *any* relationship work, monogamous or Polyamorous. There will be a facilitated discussion in which you can get your questions addressed and some of the knowledge in our community can be shared.

If you'd like to cool off and de-dust yourself after our tea party, bring a water donation to enjoy PolyParadise's famous Human Carcass Wash.

Human Carcass Wash - 3:00p-4:30p - Monday thru Sunday
Check out the How To Guide...

Wash and be Washed...Be part of an interactive washing experience.

The highly regarded and much anticipated... Human Carcass Wash!!!

Get involved with some of your closest Playa friends and some new friends in trading your old Playa Dust in for a clean body ready to be dusted once again. This event honors your stated boundaries of where you do want to be touched or washed.

You will first participate in helping other Burning Man friends get washed by spraying them with Water, Dr. Bonners Peppermint Soap, washed with plenty of hands by your Playa neighbors, then sprayed again with water and squeeged off before you depart for more Playa fun. Bring a water donation to help the process along.

Hair washing may be available, depending on donated water resources and available PolyParadise members or other Playa friends willing to provide Hair Washing.

Mind Melt - Monday thru Friday - 8:00p - 9:00p
Mind Melt lets your mind be changed from Fear of the unknown, to finding Hope in the Future, by experiencing 3-D Images of lights and sounds and the peace only found within the receptive mind and experience of every thought, feelings, sensations, and level of awareness through corresponding brain wave patterns.

Mind machines change your perception by stimulating balanced, abundant neurotransmitter production, expanding neural pathways, and programming desirable, ecologically sound behaviors. The use of mind melting can enhance physical healing and homeostasis, intellectual performance, and greatly improved a sense of well-being, which allows one to See beauty where others do not, and a new perception of life that is the Future for all Mankind.

Remember; nothing really exists, it’s all in the electrons of your mind.

Poly Friendly Mixer/Social - Tuesday 3:30p-5:30p
A mixer for poly and like minded folks to meet, chat and make some new friends ... Or more. Beer – Wine- Soda provided. Come and hang out for a drink & a chat.

No urgency  - Wednesday 11:00a-1:00p
The importance of self love and patience as you transition between non monogamous boundaries. We are creatures of habit but more clearly we open doors for all of the possibilities in non monogamy. How to create healthy boundaries and habits to lay the foundation for a over flowing loving cup relationship.

Best sex of your life living with Herpes and STI's - Thursday 3:30p-5:00p
Having STIs presents its challenges especially when we have multiple partners, going to play parties or just dating and learning new bodies. Let's talk about the in's and out's of when and where. Share our stories and experiences and have the best sex of our lives! Communication is key. Safe sex is sexy!

Mindful Hugging Meditation - Thursday - 11:00a-12:00p
How often have we experienced a quick "hello" or "how are you" as we pass by each other? Or even a hug that is awkward and without connection? This workshop will allow us to take time and mindfully experience others at a deeper level and open up to one another physically, emotionally and energetically. Come one or bring friends. All boundaries will be respected.

Yoga for the Truly Beautiful - Friday - 11:00p - 12:00p
No fancy clothes, stunning bodies, fat wallets, or yoga experience is necessary. All are welcome! If you like to move, shake, look silly, or laugh join us. Perhaps you’ll see the inner beauty of others or they’ll see yours. As the class progresses, I will remove my clothing. Honor your boundaries, not mine. When you let your little light shine, you may be happier and an inspiration to others.

Yoga Postures for 2 - Thursday 12:00p - 1:00p
No yoga experience is necessary. Beginners are welcome. Come alone or with friends. Participants will be paired up. Feel the energy. Partner Yoga allows you to connect with yourself while connecting with another in a supportive and supported practice. If you can, bring a yoga mat or towel, but it is not necessary.

Card Magic, Human Connection - Friday 12:00p-1:00p
Card Magic can be fun and surprising, but the connections that humans sometimes make are real magic. If you like sleight of hand, human touch, meditation or playful spanking, please come by. Volunteers will be needed. Expect to be amazed, and perhaps make a connection.

Distaff Shatner - Saturday 12:00p - 1:00p
A William Shatner impression contest for WOMEN!

"But...for...how...loooOOOOOOooooonnnng?"

I don't know...we can probably be done within an hour, I guess.

"And...at...whaaAAAttt...coooOOOOOooooosssst?"

Nothing. You might even win something.

Ladies, perform a fondly remembered James Kirk monologue. Emote for the ages as T.J. Hooker. Sing "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds." Whatever you want, just as long as you do it SHATNERIFICALLY!

There'll be an Act-Like-Bill competition, a Sing-Like-Bill competition, and a Bloviate-On-A-Talk-Show-Like Bill competition. Laffs, fun, maybe even some prizes, all overseen by your favorite Seattle burner, Nogoodnik. I hope you KHAAAAANNN!!! come!

Clothing Option Qi Gong - Tuesday thru Saturday 10:30a - 10:50a
QI: The life energy that flows through and permeates all things, according to Ancient Eastern Medicine (AEM). Their version of The Force, essentially. According to AEM, slow or weak qi is the reason we feel weak. Stagnant qi is the reason we feel PAIN.
GONG: A lifelong process for improving, enhancing and perfecting something.

QI GONG: A lifelong process for improving, enhancing and perfecting your qi.

CLOTHING OPTIONAL: If you don't know what this means, I won't be the one to tell you.

AEM teaches us that sweat is chi leaving the body, so if there's anywhere you need this, it's on the playa. Come build that nourishing life energy every morning after breakfast with your favorite Seattle burner!

DISCLAIMER: I am not, and don't claim to be, any sort of qi gong master. I'm just someone who knows a thing or two about it and would like to share it with the playa.

Poly High Juice Box - @ Poly High Tea - Wednesday 1:00p-3:00p
Think poly is complicated enough? Try adding children to the mix. Weather you're poly with children, or otherwise in an open relationship with or contemplating children, this special Poly High Tea discussion is for you. Bring the kids and lets hear from them if you like (or dare)! If all this seems overly daunting, don't worry - it is! So let's put our dusty heads and hearts together and see what we come up with. This is an open discussion facilitated by Peter & Gretchen (aka Adam & Eve) about all things poly with children. This will be their 8th Burn, and the second with their 5 year old daughter, Veronica. Don't expect us to have all the answers, instead come to both learn and teach! Juice boxes and animal crackers provided to help grease the conversation.
