Sat 27th, 2:00 PMRelationship Anarchy

Has organized two large open relationship discussion groups, in the Phila region, for over 20 years. The "Poly Haven" has been hosting open relationship discussions, in the Burner community for 9 years.

Relationship Anarchy is one of many ways people do open relationships. It is non-hierarchical, somewhat extreme and potentially very rewarding. Though not specific to poly relatinships, it is where the poly rubber hits the road. This is advanced polyamory. We will discuss what it is, how it works, and whatever else strikes your fancy. These discussions will be valuable to anyone exploring or in an open relationship including; Established Polyamorists, Poly-Curious, Swingers and even. Monogamous folks who want to build their relationship skills.

Sun 27th at 2:00 PMJealousy, Envy & Compersion in "Open" Relationships

We organize a long established relationship discussion camp within the Burner community & also organize two large relationship discussion meetup groups. I have presented this material at multiple festivals including a 2,000 attendee Libertarian Festival in New Hampshire called Porc Fest.

Within the Poly community, Jealousy is often called “The Green Eyed Monster” What causes jealousy, how can you manage this negative emotion and what can you learn from it? How does Jealousy relate to its’ evil sister emotions, envy & insecurity? On the opposite side of the coin we have “Compersion,” the feeling of happiness we feel for our partner (and their other partner) because you are happy for them and the positive they gain from their relationship. How do you get to compersion. What helps us find it and what stands in it’s way. Join us for a lively discussion and take home a really useful handout to help you navigate these difficult emotions

Schedule me whenever, pleaseIt Almost Crashed

I'm a longtime artist/businessman from Charlotte. I've been burning for twelve years at Transformus, Ignite, TTITD, and LoveBurn. I'm married with two teenage children, and co-own a burner-centric event space and hostel "Fort Awesome" in the NC Mountains. www.fortawesomenc.com; www.wonderworldtv.net.

I'd like to speak at the LOVE-X talks about how my marriage of 17 years almost crashed--but then didn't--how it was rescued, why it is thriving, what that means for people in search of love or a more fulfilling relationship. I'm happy to speak anytime as long as I know when in advance and as long as it's not in conflict with my volunteer hours. (Thursday 6-10pm Gate, Friday 8am-noon), Sanctuary.

Saturday and/or SundayAcroyoga

www.themovementsanctuary.com OR www.instagram.com/movementsanctuary
We have been given permission from the Nomad Sound Camp to host our workshops during the day under their tent (when they do not have music going on). The Movement Sanctuary is a group from St Pete, FL that own an acrobatic/art/circus warehouse -- specializing in Acroyoga and Aerial Silks. We also host warehouse parties, have local artists build within our space and are tapped into the local art scene here.

For our workshop we can teach Acro101 and/or host a 'jam'. We describe an Acro101 class as: "A ground-up approach to Acroyoga. If you have never tried acro yoga before, have only done it a few times, don’t know what bird, star, side star, foot to hand or throne is, then this is the class for you. We will solidify your foundations and build on the fundamentals. acroyoga is a form of partner acrobatics where there is a designated base and flyer. In this class you will have the opportunity to learn both roles in a safe space as well as having a third roll, the spotter, to keep everyone safe. You can come with a partner or come by yourself, we all play together here anyways." (and we can re-write this in some fun burner jargon if needed)

Get inverted with some Acroyoga! This 90 minute class/workshop will cater to beginners and experienced Acro-Monkeys. We will teach you how to safely base and fly for partner yoga/acrobatics. 90 minute classes are ideal (at least 1 per day, depending on what is needed).

We can provide all the mats needed. We are insured for traveling instruction as well. Just bring a smile and an open mind!

Scheudled scheduled by the Love X Talks please :)The Future of Controllerism

Moldover is a professional musician, artist, and inventor of musical instruments. He is best known for coining the term controllerism and supporting its adoption with a diverse body of work including live performances, eclectic compositions, how-to internet videos, and new instrument designs. As an innovator, educator, and devout lover of all things creative, Moldover is fiercely dedicated to spreading inspiration and bridging the gap between traditional musicianship and modern electronic music culture. http://moldover.com

The exploding power of mobile computing, the plummeting cost of rapid-prototyping tools, and the maturation of the collaborative mind we call "the internet" have all turned the music-making landscape upside-down. Artists working in this new space are presented with unique challenges and vast possibilities. Moldover will demonstrate his custom instruments, explain the performance concepts that led to their design, and share his vision for the next generation of musical experiences.

Nothing required, more of a presentation.

Sun 3:00PMPolyamory for Aces & Graces

Lighthouse is a burner, who enjoys hugs and fire dancing. She has a PhD in Systems Engineering, which pretty much ensures that she is completely clueless about relationships. … However, she is willing to *try* to figure them out!

How can asexuals and graysexuals create healthy relationships in a society that is dominated by heteronormativity? Is it possible to replace the (sometimes stifling) monogamous relationship model with another model, such as polyamory? In this Love X Talk, we will examine techniques by which aces and graces maintain minimally sexual relationships with their partners.

Nope.

Fri or Sat 10am-2pm or 5pm-8pmMana Gardening, The Answers Lie Within

Dr. Shine has been a scientist on a spiritual path for almost 20 years. She attained a special passion for bridging science and spirituality and for personal transformation after reading Barbara Marciniak’s book, Pleiadian Keys to the Living Library, back in 1997. Inspired, Michelle earned her PhD with the intention of studying scientifically how humanity would evolve to a more loving and powerful species in the current time.

Holding a PhD in Biomedical Science, Dr. Shine has published peer-reviewed articles in the fields of microbiology, cell signaling, tissue engineering, human adult stem cell therapy, stem cell basic science, biotechnology, and complementary and alternative medicine. She has also co-authored and served as Co-Investigator on several multimillion dollar grants leading scientific and engineering teams towards research goals. These experiences gave her a strong scientific ethic and foundation from which to explore other fields of science and provide a valid perspective. She also served several years as a college level professor.

In addition to being a student of many spiritual modalities for the last 15 years, she is the CoFounder and pioneer of Mana Gardening. Practicing this technique daily for over a decade transformed her from a broken hearted doormat into an empowered, happy woman. Her astounding results inspired her to write a book to share the wisdom of this ancient Hawaiian method. The first book in the series, co-authored by Keti Kamalani, entitled, Mana Gardening – Empower Yourself and Live a Better Life was recently published. Michelle teaches Mana Gardening skills in person and online, hosts scientific presentations, and is the CEO and Director of Research for Mana Gardening Institute.

TBDLove: Consensual v Unwanted - will discuss sexual harassment. Legal ramifications. Workplace v Social

Practicing discrimination law since 1990.

Nova Law School Student Bar President
Miami Beach Jaycees President
Experience on television, radio and cable.

Sexual harassment is very big on the news. Many allegations. Many denials. Truth, untruth, his version v. her version. The law is clear that sexual harassment must be severe, pervasive, and affect the terms and conditions of employment. The law requires that you tell the harasser to stop, that the contact is unwanted. If it continues, then you must report it. Reporting sexual harassment (or any discrimination) requires YOU to report it. If you are the victim and do not report it, chances are no one will ever do anything to help you. If you report and it stops, then the employer has a defense. If you report it and it continues, then there is a violation of the law.

The one I loved no longer loved me and we had 2 kids, a house, 2 cats and lived 5000 miles away from family. Luckily, I learned an ancient Hawaiian technique to access my inner wisdom and found a way to give myself the love I was no longer getting from my relationship. I will share this technique, which I call Mana Gardening, so the community has a fresh tool to use for self love and inner peace.

Saturday"Die Weird: Your Last Creative Project"

Currently studying to become an End-Of-Life Doula, Jack Trash has been active in the BM community for years, becoming quite crusty and "old-timey burner" in the process. Jack feels that modern-day society has lost touch with the dying process, and seeks to find a way for creative people to show the rest of society how to do it better.

This presentation discusses the need for active preparation and thought concerning end-of-life options for creative people such as burners. Come join the discussion about how life's last action can be as creative and unique as one's life.

The burner lifestyle can also be the burner deathstyle.

Bring a smile and the ability to discuss existential morbidity in comfort.
