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.

Swinger MeetnGreet – Tuesday 11:30a - 1:00p
Swingers at BM? Yep! Come and meet fellow swingers. Open to all people interested in consensual non-monogamy. A social event not a play party, but...?

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.

Detangling Break Ups - Tuesday 6:00p-8:00p - Many of us have gone through a break up or multiple and some of those break ups are very entangled within your community of lovers. How do we detangle gracefully? How do we respect our other partners, lovers, wants and desires as we make transitions in our lives that hopefully result in healthy habits and no resentment! Many examples to share and lots of space for exploring ideas, sharing and hearing new ones! Come low key, decompress some thoughts, in an open safe space where we're here to listen. May result in a cuddle puddle.

"Am I a Unciorn?" Dating in the Non Monogamous and Poly, Queer worlds as a single lady/guy/unicorn/pineapple - Wednesday 11:00a-1:00p
When approached most think I'm a unicorn but is it true? Let's talk about the dating world as a single human being in the non monogamous worlds. From online dating, to play parties, to walking down the street or sitting in your car. Come talk with the like minded and we can help form boundaries, wants, desires, to better help your dating world!

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 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, Making Connections - Friday 11:00a-1:00p
Yes, you've seen card tricks before, but this magic show has been developed by and especially for burners. Come and feel the burn. Combining sleight of hand, focus and touch can lead to mind boggling illusion.

Poly High Juice Box - @ Poly High Tea 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.

Nude Art Night - Wednesday & Friday 5:30p-8:00p
Nude Art Night is a community endeavor to create art of various forms where the featured model isn't the only one with the option to be nude. ~~Burning Man Edition only includes pencils, so bring your paints or clay!
