The Intimates believe intimacy (emotionally connected, physically platonic, vulnerable “being with” another) is a source of nourishment and ease that helps bring burners into balance and energizes them for big (peak or valley) experiences on playa. Our goal is to facilitate safe spaces and experiences that alter the trajectory of your playa journey, leaving you nourished, loved, seen, grounded, and open to new experiences and connections. Note: We explicitly decouple sexuality* from intimacy so we can experience unclouded connection together.

Its All Made Up/Home Rule Village
Hailing from the Washington DC area, and now all around the world, we have been the home of SkyBar for several years. While we will continue to offer the best view or BRC, we are also becoming a home, a platform and a connecting place for people looking to create and transform their lives and the world we live in. This takes a lot of forms, from healing practices to conversations to new experiences to connecting and translating across all the things we know, and all the things we don’t. But it’s all here, somewhere, maybe right in front of us. Maybe what we dismissed as magic speaks to the possibility of how it all actually works, and has the whole time. What if we can literally just make it up because we get that? Because we can.URL: http://www.itsallmadeup.org Hometown: Washington DC
