2012 Theme Camp - Sun Guardians - Male, Art, Yoga, Spirit

Postby toaster » Sun Nov 06, 2011 10:19 pm

Sun Guardians is an assembly of an idea to combine some really passive masculine energy into something really powerful and dedicated to the heart, soul, mind. Largely fraternal and non-sexual based it is a focus on the masculine and elevating that through yoga and art.

By assembling creative men we are building on something that has since drifted in history. We are using ancient sandscript movement to amplify that energy by tuning the chakras through yoga. By inspiring through art. More...

[b]Art:[/b] When we get together the tribe/collective should be prepared or prepare to make some creative endeavor/project together that can be accomplished passively through the span of the gathering. This could include clay, paper-mache, wood, metal or any other media that does not contribute to MOOP (Matter Out Of Place or pollution). Participants do not have to engage in primary roles of the project and there is no mandatory participation. Individuals are encouraged to bring projects for personal growth or collaboration. Art is the key to expression and having an open energy like that will give us the chance to connect. Another level of connection is the use of yoga in collaboration with art.

[b]Yoga:[/b] The practice of yoga is individual, but group practices can be very invigorating. Yoga itself is a tuning of the Chakras. Ever hear someone say “he needs to open his heart” or “he needs to open his mind”? These are relevant statements. Depending on the level of practice, a well led class can build a bridge between strangers that goes beyond physicality and beyond sexuality. Far too many people get lost on the surface and never get deeper.

[b]Spirituality:[/b] Where Art allows for the expression of oneself and can free a person of expression, Yoga but it’s nature as an individual practice allows for the freedom to perform at your best free of judgement of others; yoga in couples situations gives the participants an ability to surrender from the fear of building a connection in a social environment but build in the connection of another level.

[b]Sexuality:[/b] This is not an issue of sexual orientation and therefore not about the physical act. Do not confuse the carnal act with a connection. Too many people cannot separate things like nudity, proximity, physical contact and more for the initiation of sexual gratification. That kind of gratification is in the moment and is an empty, mistaken sense of fulfillment that is temporary.

This is not religion. This is a state if spiritual being where you are allowed to find your inner light and magic brightened by like minded people around you.

Camp Configuration: http://www.sunguardians.net/event-planning/bm-2012-camp
Proposed classes and events: http://www.sunguardians.net/event-plann ... nd-classes

More information on the page including the commitment form http://www.sunguardians.net/event-planning/bm-2012-camp at the bottom of this page. We are seeking approximately 30 to 40 members inclusively and members of the collective that will step up and b leaders when needed.

One aspect of this camp that is important is that it should not be overly intense and the people who are active in the collective are proactive and desire to see the success of the camp. A coupe of events/fundraisers will also support nthTribe.net for art funding.

SunGuardians.Net Theme Camp Meetings

Postby toaster » Sun Feb 19, 2012 12:57 pm

Three pillars of the camp are: Yoga | Art | Spirit

Yes, we are looking for male/male spirited participants and are actively engaged in preparing for membership/participation ... we will be having our third meeting today when we are finally getting into the core of our decision making. If you have visited our site you will see a temple erected in the desert with a lot of amazing activities planned through the day including yoga classes, art workshops, and spirituality all around the male energy.

We are radically inclusive and are ardent supporters of the 10 principles. Anyone joining us MUST be familiar with the 10 Principles and honor them and repsect fellow camp mates irregardless of sexual orientation. We do anticipate a largely gay/bi male and trans male population and encourage men of any orientation that are comfortable with themselves to join us and help make this collective work.

Please see our site and facebook for more details:

Our next meeting is very important and would like to start getting people pointed toward the front gate... even if you don't have a ticket yet please get involved - whether it s this camp or any camp - get involved! People are making strong efforts to get you there one way or another... and if we can do it by sending the scalpers to hell then lets do it!

Please join in on the discussion. It is time to get moving and we have some key elements that need to spark and begin churning. FOR REAL...

In the discussion we will be looking to get to know potential campers / collective members who are interested in making this three pillar community come to life: yoga | art | spirit.

Agenda Items
1. Introductions and a bit about oneself and why you are interested in camping with SG

2. Leadership: who we are, why we are: because it is a little different than the typical Burning Man 'no one's in charge idea': EXCEPT!!!! That the camp is still a collective and consensus is still key to community; a democracy and a do-acracy....

3. Camp Fees: Please review and let's talk; keep in mind we will be providing water and food for general consumption for the week; a kitchen for use and producing 2 camp dinners; producing 2 or 3 camp parties hosting the general community. - Let's talk about that...

4. Excesses v. Things you need: Talk to me! Having our own toilets is a luxury someone suggested we might not need. Keep in mind each toilet will be $1000 minimum and we will need a minimum of 2 JUST for SG campers.

This is our first major meeting and we need to star building our presence.

Camp Meeting next week...

http://www.facebook.com/events/278826392194024/

http://www.sunguardians.net/040612-sun- ... n-pot-luck

Are you desiring to go to Burning Man?
Are you undecided on what camp to go with?

Come join us for an informational community gathering for those interested in a new theme camp called Sun Guardians.

Sun Guardians is an assembly of powerful and dedicated male energy through heart, soul, and mind connection. Largely fraternal and non-sexual based it is a focus on the masculine and elevating that through yoga and art.

The idea is bringing like-minded people into a tribe/collective. We will endeavor to create events where we can leave a positive foot-print in the future. The foot-print is a spiritual influence and a vibration by the affect of our practice as individuals and as a group. The camp will look a lot like a temple when it is built.

At this pot luck you'll meet Toaster (Scott K), SG's creator, other men involved with this camp, learn about SG's focus and activities, and see if it's a community where you'd like to be a participant and leader. We look forward to meeting you!

Bring a knosh if you can... cocktails... whatever primes out up for the night. BUT please RSVP on one or both of these event notices...
