Save+the+date2018.jpg

Thursday, July 5th — Sunday, July 8th 2018
Gates Open at 3pm, July 5th
Gates Close at 3pm, July 8th

 

Enjoy 4 days of frolicking in the sun and 3 nights throwing down with a community that has (or will) come to feel like family. We'll have movies to help you unwind after your journey and music to keep your body moving.

3 Degrees has always endeavored to create a vibrant, interconnected community. Our very name is a nod to the fact that we are all connected by three degrees of separation at most. It is this web of connection that allows us to shine both individually and collectively.

 

Here is a little bit of what you are in for at this years event...

Workshops

 

FRIDAy

Meditation

9:00 AM - 10:00 AM with Ron

This meditation workshop will concentrate on two forms of meditation: Insight meditation (mindfulness)  and metta meditation (loving kindness). You will be offered some instruction and guidance in the practice so no experience is required to sit. The workshop will conclude with a short talk and discussion.

 

Morning Yoga Session

10:15 AM - 11:15 AM with Kathren

We’ll begin with a nature-based guided meditation. Then we’ll connect with ourselves, one another, and the trees through our breath; sound through the chakras; engage in some playful yoga and shake it all out. Let’s move some energy together and practice in ways that bring us joy and prepare our bodies for dancing. All levels of experience are welcome. Kids under 12, please bring an adult with you!

 

Zen Thai Touch

11:30 AM- 12:30 PM with Tino

Zen Thai Touch (ZTT) is comprised of gentle stretching that gradually flows into a modified version of basic Thai massage. ZTT is slower than traditional Thai massage as it provides the practitioner the opportunity to hold and listen to the receiver’s energy field while paying reverence to the session. Intuition and creativity is always welcomed in ZTT.

ZTT is a partner workshop. A mat, sleeping bag, pillows, blanket, and/or any other soft squishy items will be important to help you stay comfortable. ZTT is done with light clothing on, so shorts or yoga pants are perfect.

 

Groovy Booty Yoga

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM with Megan

Come one, come all as Megan leads us in a gentle yoga adventure designed to delight the body & open the senses. Prepare your dancing vessel for an evening of maximum shenanigans. Release tension and open the channels for bliss, connection and clear seeing of just how blessed we are. Be there!

Saturday

Morning Yoga Session

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM with Kathren

Today’s practice will begin with a body-centered meditation and breathwork. Then we’ll move into heart-opening postures to greet the day, inviting an atmosphere of gratitude and celebration. After connecting with ourselves in the web of life through the divine play of yoga (Yoga Lila), we’ll end with our back bodies outstretched upon the earth in an experience of our common union. All levels welcome. Kids under 12, please bring an adult with you!

 

Tea Party!

1:00 PM - till you drop

OK, it's not quite a workshop, but we hope that you'll hippity-hop with us in delicious joy and reverie! Teacups, cookies, unbirthday celebrations abound!
