Poly High Tea - 1:00p-3:00p - Monday thru Saturday
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.

Not being able to use baby wipes in the porta-potty and the endless hours biking in the desert take their toll.
The Uniformed Personnel at the Hiney Hygiene Station are here to help.
Our highly professional staff of “Hiney Hygienist” will use baby wipes, warm Shea Butter soapy water and Moisturizing Lotions with Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, A, B5 and Minerals on your… Well you know what.
So why not let us “Pamper Your Posterior” at the Hiney Hygiene Station today?

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 - 8:00p - 9:00p
- Monday thru Friday
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.
The Heart of Now - 10:45a
- 12:45p - Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday
The essence of the Heart of Now is the practice of being present with your whole self. In The Heart of Now workshop, you’ll come to know yourself more deeply. You’ll discover the possibility of reconnection with your innate beauty, wholeness and be honest with yourself and and with others in a safe circle of love. You can discover those places you’ve felt stuck, while you are supported in letting go. You learn to become aware of those times when you get in your own way, and come to see the choices open to you. You embrace what you desire the most, and deeply commit to letting your dreams and your visions be more important than you past wounds. You will find yourself reconnecting with your innate beauty, wholeness and power in each moment.
Heart of Now workshops include numerous assistants to support you and to create a sacred space for transformation. A deeply nurturing environment is created. This teamwork approach deepens the experience of service and camaraderie, where all are able to experience their vulnerabilities, allowing trust and growth.

Insight - 3:00p - 5:00p - Thursday
Are you ready for an open relationship but don’t know where to begin? Is your partner unsure or skeptical? Are you eager to open your relationship, but afraid all you will do is open Pandora’s box? The good news is we humans are not as innately monogamous as society would have us believe, and bug eyed jealousy is not a beast you have to live with. Peter and Gretchen will open their hearts (as well as their relationship) to participants, sharing their insights, experiences, ups and downs. Everything is on the table as we help you crack the door to a loving open relationship.
