Events, Workshops, & Talks at Camp Mystic

Camp Mystic attracts an incredible group of well known thought leaders, entrepreneurs, teachers, arists, musicians, and healers who are dedicated to continuing to evolve themselves and the people they interact with.  We Mystics look to enhance every environment we are in, the way art does that, the way science does that, the way human interaction does that.  We have a profound curiosity about what empowers people and allows them to be greater and as part of our gift to the playa we offer interactive workshops, talks, panel discussion on topics like human evolution, post modern spirituality, new paradigms of relationship, conscious sexuality, the burning man ethos, and much more!

Merging Dirty & Divine: Conscious Lap Dancing 

The stereotype is men would be elated to receive a lap dance from their partner. In her work as a Sex & Relationship Coach (JamieThompsonCoaching.com), Jamie has found that despite the 'lady' programming, women also crave the experience of owning their sexual power through conscious lap dancing when given a safe space to do so. Even if they identify as feminist, traditional or sexually conservative, many women have a secret fantasy about being desired as a captivating seductress by their partner. Jamie draws on experience an erotic dancer, and invites you to come let your erotic creature play without judgement! You will receive expert guidance in owning your sensual Goddess or your masculine container, while deepening the intimate communication between you and your partner. This interactive workshop is held in a container of safety and trust giving couples the space to expand their comfort zone in shared sexual freedom as they flirt with a new erotic edge.

-Free your erotic feminine creature with the art of conscious lap dancing while the masculine holds space for the Goddess unfolding.
-Play with sensual touch and learn how to straddle that fine line EXACTLY the way your partner desires through erotic communication exercises.
-Release shame and discomfort around whatever your turn on is and learn to share a new part of your secret garden with your partner.

Sensual Movement Dance Journey  

Sensual Movement wakes up your soul & reminds you you’re free. Join this co-ed sensual movement dance journey to a potent rhythmic melodic soundscape in order for you to merge with the natural freedom, power & energy in your body. Burning Man takes us out of linear thinking and into expanded ways of viewing the world. Similarly, this playshop will take you out of linear movement, (walking, biking, etc) and into the realm of sensual movement. Linear movement can get your heart rate up, but sensual movement wakes up and frees your soul. Our bodies were built as incredible instruments of pleasure and sensuality, but we still need some guidance to learn how to feel as good as we are capable of feeling. In this 60-minute morning movement session, you will learn the ways you can awaken your body for more instant pleasure, energy and sensuality on the dance floor. Afterwards you will feel opened up, loose, revitalized and ready to dance for the rest of the week. There’s an energy in your spine and your pelvis that comes awake when you invite it through Sensual Movement. When you do, you’ll feel more confidence, creativity, sense of initiative, healthy boundaries, and magic in your everyday life. In 60 minutes you will feel fully alive and ready to move through the rest of the playa like the sensual being born for pleasure that you are.

Breath of One   

Slow down, breath in and allow the change to come. Conscious breathing will heal us, our society and planet…One Breath at a time!

‘Breath of One’ is a transcendental breathing practice that allows us to open our hearts connecting with our purest Inner and Higher Self. It is a unique combination both ancient and modern techniques form all over the world. There are some aspects of: Merkaba Activation, Tantra, Ayurveda Medicine, Breath of Fire and Holotropic Breath-work. ‘Breath of One’ allows us to experience different dimensions of reality and to feel the vibration of the universe. The technique is as powerful as magical. Almost everybody who has experienced it described it as mind blowing, many as life changing, some others as the most powerful moment of their life.

The intensity of the journey depends on the person and on which moment you are in your life. It will range from a body feeling of ecstasy and peace, until space and time travel. The healing coming from the practice is hard to be described with words. It will allows us to experience breakthroughs, setting ourselves free from blockages and pain, heal deep wounds and traumas, find answers and directions for our life, get connections with other dimensions and (when the channels are deeply open) leave our body for astral journeys! If you follow the breathing it is 100% guarantee that something profound and truly beautiful will happen to you. The more open to receive love and the more open minded we will be, the higher level of consciousness we will be able to experience.

What the Heck is Leadership?: A Scientific Approach  

Jason Gore is an executive coach for startup CEOs. His coaching firm specializes in supporting leaders of highly-innovative companies that are reshaping industries, communities, and how the world works.

Many of his clients are young engineers who suddenly found themselves leading large teams. They needed to learn what “good leadership” was, identify their blind spots, practice new communication skills, and improve their ability to lead. After conducting 100s of leadership assessments, the firm (Neuberg, Gore & Associates) was able to scientifically define what good leadership is when it comes to building teams and innovating in the startup environment.

In this speech, Jason will share some of their discoveries, how leadership can be defined, and most-importantly, how what we learn by co-creating in community turns out to be the exact same skills that leaders are learning at startups.

Festivals like Burning Man are more than just a good time—they are a training ground for leaders, community, and innovation. There’s a reason that most of Jason’s clients go to Burning Man and other festivals, and meanwhile, at work, they’ve raised over a billion dollars combined and are quickly growing their companies.

In this presentation, we’ll talk about what you have likely already learned about leadership though your community experiences and how to apply those skills to leadership in the default world. You will also receive a leadership self-assessment (printed or online) and we will discuss how to improve yourself as a leader.

Humankind, Where Do We Go from Here?   

I have four missions in life, they all have to do with preserving life as we know it. Mission #1 is to end the use of carbon based fuel. I'm on this mission because we are causing one of the greatest extinctions of geologic history. This great extinction could include us. How can we accomplish this mission?

Mission #2 is to end war. This mission does not have so much to do with people dying as a horrendous misappropriation of money and human effort. If this time and money were not wasted, we could already have a solution to #1. We spent more money in Afghanistan than on all of the history of NASA (Apollo, Space Shuttle, ISS, Mars Rover and hundreds of other worthwhile scientific missions)

Mission #3 is to make a backup of life as we know it. I was a computer game developer. If you expect to be successful, you make backups. The dinosaurs went extinct because they were all here when a relatively small rock from space wiped them out. We are all here. Life as we know it is all here. We must make backups on the Moon and Mars. We must go beyond our solar system.

Mission #4 is to find out how the Universe ends and do something about it. This mission straddles science and philosophy. I'm not even sure what I mean when I say "Universe". I have met with people from cosmologists to reincarnated Buddhist monks in search of what the question actually means, let alone the answer.

What am I to make of these missions. Are they the right ones? Will I be able to accomplish any of them in my lifetime? Does that even matter? If you think these things matter, come to my talk. Burning Man '17, Camp Mystic. Let's talk about it.

Humans crave experiences that truly move us. What is it that makes a moment truly 'sublime'? How can both brain research and art help us understand these experiences?

How to Save the World in 2 Simple Steps
So you have a meditation practice...now what? The challenges that humankind is facing can seem unsolvable. Problems like climate change, terrorism and the food crisis. Emily Fletcher suggests that the solution to these complex problems may be much simpler than we think. Meditating twice a day can not only help to optimize your personal performance, it can help to up-level the state of consciousness of innovators and world leaders (read everyone) who are positioned to solve the more complex challenges the world is facing. You may laugh, you may cry but you will definitely leave lit up about leaving the world better than you found it.

Bridges to another life
Exponentially accelerating technology, population and development imply that the vast majority of all technological progress has occurred within living memory, yet the basic template for industrial civilization hasn't changed much since Hiroshima. Merely tacking organic food and iPhone apps onto the suburban consumerism of the fifties sells both humanity and technology short. Rather than leaping into the unknown however, or embracing an interested vision, most people rightly stock with what they know, even as it ceases to inspire, or even to make sense. Experimental communities can showcase the possibilities technology and abundance have made available, preparing the disaffected to make a shift from consumerism to more advanced forms of society.

The Myth of Authenticity (& the Truth of Intimacy)
Like an electron that can't be directly observed, our "truth" is a vector at best, a nebulous arrow pointing toward an empty center. Good thing that vector is the evolutionary impulse itself.

EroticHypnotic: Alive and Aligned
Most people think hypnosis is swinging watches and parlor tricks, instead it is a powerful, complementary tool that you can use to explore creative worlds and even facilitate a dramatic healing. In a single Hypnosis session, one can ramp up pleasure, boost confidence, and even explore a kink in a way that requires no expensive props, gear, or flashy costumes- just your imagination! You can also ignite passion, dissolve shame, manage PTSD, or dive into even more elaborate erotic exploration. It is possible to shape shift, time travel, change your age or status, safely feel fire, and even go against the laws of physics. Are you Captain F*cking America, a pink purring sexy kitten, or galavanting in Medieval times wielding your sword while riding a Pegasus? Yes! Anything is possible here! Through Hypnosis we can travel far out into imaginary places, safely remove emotional blockages, as well as shift negative patterns and limiting beliefs that prevent our clients from having the intimate lives that they crave. *Learn how and why Hypnosis is so effective in exploring kink, sensation play and more *Learn history & practical uses for Hypnosis *Learn how the mind sabotages the best goals and desires *Get a small taste of what Hypnosis is like and let’s meet come face to face with your inner most juicy and alive sensual self!

Leadership: The Four Faces of Incorruptible Power
In order to live in a world without war we must first heal the war between the sexes. It is time for feminine power and leadership to rise and join a healthy, incorruptible masculine. Where are the positive archetypes of feminine power? Kali, who cuts off your head? Hera, who is the god form of holly homemaker: basically “Zeus’ wife” with a goddess-sized jealous streak? Wonder Woman, who battles evil but has no family and no love in her life? It’s time for us to tell a new story of femininity, with our choices, with our self-expression, and with our lives. There are too few positive examples of women who are in full command of their sexuality and its attractive powers. There are too few healthy stories of women who’s full creative expression is unbridled and uncontrolled. There are too few healthy stories of men who are powerful without creating harm and violence . There are too few healthy stories of men who create win-win instead of win-lose. Learn how to harness the feminine forms and masculine forms of power in each of your interactions and become a true manifestor - brining your highest vision into reality through your being, your words, and your actions.You will learn an unforgettable map of your own sources of power, some of which have been lying dormant for your entire life. Once you can locate and allow all four faces of incorruptible power to move through you, you can lead, inspire, and serve almost anyone. For Men and Women who want to bring their full spiritual presence into the material world and be the bridge between our present reality and the future vision only you can see.

The Evolutionary Psychology of Polyamory
Are human naturally monogamous or promiscuous? Neither view makes sense given what we've learned about human sexual psychology in the last couple of decades. Most of us seem to have evolved over the last million years to be polyamorous by nature. But we are socialized into monogamist mating norms that amplify sexual jealousy, reduce compersion, stifle our sexual sovereignty, and limit the social networks that we instinctively try to build through lovers and metamours. In this talk, a leading evolutionary psychology professor (author of 'The Mating Mind', 'Spent', and 'Mate') will give a quick, fun overview of the new science behind poly. Then we'll have a Q&A.

True Love: Beyond Power, Status & Sexuality
“Everything in the world is about sex except sex. Sex is about power.” Oscar Wilde's words have great explanatory and predictive power, but I'm curious about the limits of this model. Where & how does Love come in? Could True Love honor our drives for power and sex by holding them sacred and taking them with us to the next level? Come explore these themes: -How does power & sexuality constrain or inspire intimacy? -What's the relationship between fear, control & sex -Influence & immortality -the ultimate power -Can a conscious partnership creatively co-op our need for control? -Could True Love offer a map through the power struggle? -Why we fuck? Why we fuck off? Join us for a edgy exploration of how these important ideas intersect. Bring your taboo questions & leave all assumptions at the door.

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 3rd

You don't like how things are: Start your own town!
It sometime seems as if things are grim and change could just never come about in the places where we live. With extreme divide in our government, a broken food system and environmental degradation continuously getting worse, what can we possibly do to change things? I say, start an ecological community with all of your favorite people in the most ideal climate where conscious choice and intentional design are integral to your decision making. I will guide you on my journey in Costa Rica in creating community on a crystal clear river with deep pools where dripping fruit trees line the roads and neighbors care about each other and are dedicated to improving our world.

Camp To CampUS
There are more than 50 million innocent displaced people that had to flee for war, poverty, injustice or climate change. The average stay of a refugee in a camp is 17 years. Since WWII the hosting and management of a refugee community in such camps has not changed. Till the day of today refugee camps are harsh survival environments where people risk exploitation, are hopeless and rules of the strongest apply. After being involved in the epicenter of the refugee crisis on the Greek island of Lesvos I came to the knowledge that there is such a big difference to be made in this global issue if we would stop seeing refugees, victims of injustice. Instead we should approach them as individuals with talents, opportunities equal to our own standards and with the same needs. We should be aware that if we would invest in people that have lost everything this investment will be returned to us in gratefulness and willingness to contribute in their own succes. You get what you give... In creating communities that thrive you should start with environments that inspire. On Lesbos, the epicenter of the refugee crisis in Europe last year, I witnessed the similarities in dynamics between hosting refugees on a refugee camp and hosting a crowd on a music festival. We believe many insights from the festival industry can be integrated to redefine a refugee camp from a Spartan fashionlike environment to an inspiring festivallike experience. Adding to the festival game innovative solutions/companies, educational programs and integration of the refugee community in the management and self-sustainability of their camp will create an environment of harmony and dignity that will be an example in how to change a global issue into an opportunity that can serve humanity on a global scale. Join me in this quest to redefine the global concept of a refugee camp to a campUS.

Merkabah Activation Session

Merkabah activation is a 3000 years old breathing technique that allows to open a portal in our heart chakra. This will bring us to feel the vibrations and the energy of the universe. The intensity of the technique depends on the person, ranging from an incredible feeling of ecstasy, until space and time journeys. Being a technique that connects with the inner and higher self, it will also allows to experience breakthroughs, get answers about our lives, solve problems that we didn't even know to have. The more open to receive love and the more open minded we will be, the more we will get from this practice. The technique is as powerful as magical. Almost everybody that have experienced it, described it as mind blowing, many as life changing, some others as the most powerful moment of their life.

The Four Faces Of Incorruptible Personal Power
Where are the positive archetypes of feminine power? Kali, who cuts off your head? Hera, who is the god form of holly homemaker: basically “Zeus’ wife” with a goddess-sized jealous streak? Wonder Woman, who battles evil but has no family and no love in her life? It’s time for us to tell a new story of femininity, with our choices, with our self-expression, and with our lives. There are too few positive examples of women who are in full command of their sexuality and its attractive powers. There are too few healthy stories of women who’s full creative expression is unbridled and uncontrolled. Learn how to harness the dual feminine forms and dual masculine forms of power in each of your interactions and become a true manifestor - brining your highest vision into reality through your being, your words, and your actions.You will learn an unforgettable map of your own sources of power, some of which have been lying dormant for your entire life. Once you can locate and allow all four faces of incorruptible power to move through you, you can lead, inspire, and serve almost anyone. For Men and Women who want to bring their full spiritual presence into the material world and be the bridge between our present reality and the future vision only you can see."

Men's Authentic Personal Expression
I am a woman who has focused herself over the last year on providing empowerment to already successful male entrepreneurs and thought leaders, supporting the purity of what legacy they leave behind by helping them with everything from how they deliver who they are to the world, to working out their heart and personal logistics, I have developed the "50 Points of Attractiveness" and tested it to success. I have 18 years coaching authentic self-expression, including 4 TEDx talks. 22 years studying people / human interaction via songwriting (and expressing my findings artfully). 28 years as a performer in various capacities, especially singing. In my career I've presented music and talks for over 100,000 people. Also, I've spent the last full year doing a deep dive into femininity/polarity studies. I am an advocate for men being empowered (especially as women claim their power more and more), and attaining the capacity to leave legacies. This includes knowing how to navigate matters of the heart. Overall, I really LOVE showing men how to feel happy and free professionally, publicly, and personally by learning how to express themselves authentically. So much of this revolves around a man's ability to limit drama and distraction in his life.

Transcending Shame, Guilt & Envy
There are many things you 'could' do, but there's nothing you 'should' do. I suspect there's no such thing as a 'should'. A should is a 'could' with shame smuggled on top of it. Come explore shame and its cousins: guilt, envy, anger and jealousy. All these emotions have one thing in common, they usually hide their tracks and are hard to admit. Learn to transcend your shame with cutting edge subjective tools. We'll investigate the nature of shame & shaming, look at the adaptive advantages of them and how they serve & do not serve our development. Join love coach Annie Lalla for some powerful exercises that will help you move beyond past shames and show you how desist from laying down new ones. This is a forum to discuss how to experience our emotions, especially the difficult ones, so they stop haunting your psyche. You will leave shameless or at least shamelessly.

Activating Your Creative Feminine Magic
This workshop is about working with the magical, creative energy of Burning Man to create a plan-of-action to bring your unique offering to the world. When you are holding onto your creative expression, your gifts, your particular genius, or pretending not to know what it is, it's gets very uncomfortable after a while. It will start itching inside of you to be created in physical form, it's deepest desire is to be born out of the dream space. You came to Planet Earth to share this, now is your time. Calling all healers, conversation-starters, rebels, light-workers, and medicine women. This workshop is broken down into four magical sections. 1) Connection. How relating to others is the number one function of your business or passion project. We begin the workshop with getting connected on the soul level to your fellow sisters. 2) Reclaiming Your Unique Brilliance. Refining your message and creating something in the world that is unique, contributive, and that people will pay for. 3) Healing Your Relationship With Money. Girl, if you want to start or expand your business, you've got to look at your drama and trauma with money. What would it be like if money flowed to you with ease? What would it be like if you could actually receive it? We will dive into this exploration together. 4) Closing Ritual. Our closing ritual will include a beautiful ceremony to hold each others intentions and desires as we go create in the world. You will be let into a "light-share" experience.

Camp Night Out and Mystic Flyer Consecration Ceremony

On Friday night we like to band together as a Mystical Tribe and head out to the playa to explore to bond to dance to frolic and to have some good ole fashion fun!

Starting at 10:30pm, everyone in camp is invited to meet us around the Mystic Flyer where Cosmic Cowboy and Cyberius Rex invite all of us to use our hands and our hearts to literally Bless & Infuse the Mystic Flyer such that it becomes a floating Artistic Expression of Camp Mystic and carries with it the intention of creating the energy of Heaven on Earth, which translates to beings that are infinitely accepting, loving & compassionate to one another until 11:11PM.

After this beautiful and touching ceremony, we'll all head out together...so bring your dancin' shoes!

Day:            Friday

Time:          10:30PM - 3:00AM

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 6th

Sunrise Temple Camp Gathering
After a long night of gallivanting, nothing could be better than Raj’s joy bag and a massive cuddle puddle out in deep playa near the Temple.  Here we share heartfelt stories, song, hot tea, foot rubs, favorite moments and just plain old fashion love.  It's a sweet juicy time with fellow mystics to book end an amazing journey.

Closing Circle
As closed to ‘required’ as it gets on the Playa.  A time for integrating the lifetime of learning and experiences you created during the week.  Fill your cup with love, appreciation, and gratitude. 

Day:          Sunday                  
Time:        1:00PM - 2:00PM

Strike
Right after the closing circle, break into your strike groups and start taking stuff down!  Many hands make light work, and we get better every year at swiftly and efficiently “leaving no trace”.  Busting butt at strike is also a great way to show your appreciation for the early arrival crew!

Time:        2:00PM - 7:00PM
