TTS 2018 EVENTS
This is a rough plan. Soon as we've confirmed our event schedule, times will be posted here.
Opening SWING + DOME Lighting
It's our 10th Year, and we're inviting everyone to celebrate with us. Join us on our extra wide porch swing and enjoy the show as we illuminate our domes, do a little dance, and make a little love. Get down tonight!
repeats Monday, Tuesday morning
For one hour, we will join forces and create radial patterns using basic yoga poses. This is next-level partner work, that's accessible to everyone, even total beginners. Be a petal on the blossom of life.
You need it bad. You've been knuckle deep in the playa for days. You've got callouses on top of your callouses. Time to clean those cuticles, trim those nails, and get your hands ready to touch something softer than rebar. Vinegar solution, hand lotion, and nail polish will be supplied.
repeats Monday, Tuesday afternoon
Learn to mount, swing, and dismount under the guidance of a circus clown.
See the world like a bee with honeycomb-vision! In this DIY crafting workshop, we'll make and decorate custom kaleidoscopes. When you're done, enjoy an immersive look through our super-sized, wear-able Hexascope. Crafting continues while supplies last. Hexascope available to view any time. Kid-friendly!
Put YOUR fun in a FUNdoshi! Learn to tie a loincloth. Material will be provided or bring your own strip (approximately 1' x 8'). While supplies last.
repeats Wednesday, Thursday afternoon
also on Saturday afternoon
Participate in a sensual network. Each person is a node, touch is how we connect, every exchange strengthens the social bonds. The name comes from our primate cousins, the Bonobo chimpanzees, who resolve the tension of conflict through intimacy rather than violence (most of the time). We've adapted grooming practices seen throughout the animal kingdom to activate good-vibe hormones, which signal feelings of safety, belonging, and well-being. This is a naked experience where you should expect to touch and be touched by someone you don't already know, within a carefully structured and monitored program. All are welcome.
Fire Dance Party
Calling all fire dancers! We've got a DJ, you bring the moves. NYFD-certified fire safeties on site.
Swing That Thing
Calling all spinners, flow artists, and upper-body activators. We'll be teaching simple and complex movement patterns, to restore health and balance to your arms, shoulder girdle, and trunk. Bring your favorite prop or try out some of ours. Beginners welcome.
repeats Thursday, Friday morning
Yoga gradually removes the false layers covering your true self. Begin with a powerful symbolic and liberating act: strip off your Cloth Layer. This all-levels practice will focus on awakening your largest sense organ to help ground you in the present moment.
Naked Dance party
You call it Friday, we call it FREEDAY. Dance yourself clean!
bucky dome open house
Check out this new method of dome construction that can built in under an hour. Requires no tools, special skills, or strength to assemble. Using the geometry of the truncated icosahedron, aka Bucky Ball, this dome frame features uniform pole lengths, isometric vertices, and a modified tensegrity system to stabilize and distribute loads.
The Final Swing
After the Temple burns, have a final swing before everything comes down in the morning. Listen to chill tunes, share a story, say good-bye.
