Event Details

We gather as an intentional community in this temporary autonomous zone of Mysteria to celebrate Cathartic Interactions.
Specifically, we love Acro Yoga, Contact Improv Dance, Authentic Relating, Ecstatic Dance, Massage, Hugs, Steam Baths.
To this end, we have acquired a lot of infrastructure and best practices over the years to allow us to offer our deepest gifts with ease while also providing a rocking comfy-ass camp and grand kitchen where one can create nourishing, enlivening, seductive meals for Breakfast and Dinner.
We do ask for a lot as a part of being in camp--we need help constructing the Camp Contact zone, as well as taking it down. We have a lot of infrastructure-- at Transformus we set up a 30' (750 sq foot) shaded dome dance space, a 15 person Steam Bath, a 10' x 20' massage space, a kitchen large enough to feed 60 people, as well as our tents and personal spaces, and more!

We are specifically committed to ensuring the emotional and spiritual well-being of our camp mates, and are dedicated to checking in with them, celebrating community, naming desires, honoring consent, offering gifts and revering declines of those gifts when they come, demanding a "Hell Yes" from the other when considering any edgy interaction.

We are a Leave No Trace Camp with a Leave No Trace Kitchen.  When we see moop, we clean it up or bring it to our lost and found.
We teach classes starting at 9am through 6pm each day, and often have night dance / acro events.
We also ask for a contribution to support this infrastructure and also to cover food expenses. Further, we ask that you sign up to help cook or clean up after one of the meals (Breakfast or Dinner).  If this contribution is a challenge, be in touch, we may have a work study position available.
