Model and Plan View

1:44 Portal of the Five Elements - Burning Man 2018

Looking for team to build and bring to Burning Man the 1:44 Portal of the Five Elements: five hexagonal rooms around a central dark room with geometric skylights the color and shape corresponding to the five elements - Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Aether
This will require people that are able to do precise construction work to frame and sheath, work with plexiglas as well as do LED lighting, install a small sound system and a solar power system to power it. Also need someone to help with launching and promoting a crowdfunding campaign to cover the budget. Need to be available to build the weeks before, bring it there and back.
Please email me ASAP to apply. You can reach me by phone through the contact page.
New Portal Outline Pendants

New 3D printed Portals

My new friend and 3D artist extraordinaire David Dreamwalker Diamondheart has made 3 Portal outlines as small pendants.
The 11:11 Diamond Portal Outline pendant is exactly 11 golden ratios smaller than the full size 11:11 Diamond Portal.
The Heart Star Portal Outline pendant is an exact scale replica of the full size one that you may have climbed on at countless festivals.
The 12:12 Emerald Portal Outline pendant contains a cuboctahedron inside the truncated cube, showing the relationship between the 60º coordinate system and the 90º degree system.
They are available in a number of different materials for varying prices. Please see the rest of David's incredible 3D printed sacred geometries at his Ascension Arts Shapeways store website with 8 pages of super powerful ascension tools.

Casa Estlan - Yucca Valley, Ca.

Casa Estlan on Air BnB

This is a departure from the TransPortals, but I have just finished a year and a half renovation of a house and separate studio apt. on over an acre of land in the center of Yucca Valley, Ca, 7838 Joshua Lane. The studio apt./garage is for myself and partner Esther Kim to live in and work out of. It is situated a hundred feet behind the house on the large property.

The house is listed on Air BnB for short term rental. We call it Casa Estlan after the first three letters of Esther and last three letters of Harlan. The house is completely furnished and tastefully decorated with an Asian flair and mix of antique and vintage furnishings. It has new high end kitchen appliances if you like to cook.

Please check out the Air BnB listing to see photos, but if you want to come stay here I can give you a discount and save you the Air BnB fees by contacting me directly to book it. Also, please share the Air BnB listing with your friends  to help promote it. We will be setting up the Alcyone Portal in the back yard for guests to have a Portal experience.
Presenting at Full Circle Venice CA 2014

Sacred Geometry Presentation

I have been presenting on the 3D Sacred Geometry used in the Portals at public venues, festivals and Burning Man since 2008 (see the video of the presentation). The talk explains the Golden Ratio, 3D geometries and how they relate to the Earth's vibrational energy body, going on to show how they are employed in the development of all the Portal installations. I have now expanded the talk to include my lifelong research and development of future environments inspired by Buckmintser Fuller and Paolo Soleri's concept of Arcolgy: Architecture and Ecology combined.
I most recently presented it at Gem and Jam in Tucson and in Joshua Tree.
If interested to book this presentation or have connections with schools or universities that would be interested in having me, please contact me.
