Driving Directions

Harbin's street address is 18424 Harbin Springs Road, Middletown, CA 95461. Click here to see our location using MapQuest or Google Maps.

Harbin Springs Road is a narrow, curving road with no shoulders and poor visibility. You may suddenly encounter cattle, deer, other wildlife, walkers, joggers or bicyclists, so please drive slowly and carefully.

(Driving through Napa Valley, the Lincoln Ave/CA-29 turnoff is in Calistoga, NOT the Lincoln Ave exit in Napa. Also, be aware that some onboard navigation systems have lead those driving through Cobb onto the unpaved Bogg Mountain Springs fire road. Do not attempt to access Harbin on this road. If you find yourself on an unpaved road on the way to Harbin, turn around.)

TRAVEL ADVISORY: We have been advised that there may be construction delays of approx. 20 minutes on Highway 29 between Calistoga and Middletown. The delays may be encountered Monday to Friday, 8 AM to 4 PM, through September 2011. You can check http://www.dot.ca.gov/cgi-bin/roads.cgi or call 800-427-7623 for updates. But even if no delays are mentioned, you may want to leave extra time, especially if you must arrive in advance of a massage appointment.

Note: Lecture-style events or abstract/theoretical presentations do NOT go over well, while audience participation/ interactive events are usually MUCH MORE popular.

All events should directly relate to polyamory, polyfidelity, triading, sexual poding, open
relationships or other forms of consensual non-monogamy.

In case you've never been there before, you'll love Harbin. Harbin Hot Springs, CA near Middleton (two hours from both San Francisco), nestles on 1200 acres of beautiful canyon land. It offers natural healing waters (hot, warm and cold pools), miles of hiking trails.  The Poly Conference's area is totally private within Harbin; in our area, we can be openly affectionate and even sexual. Harbin is a clothes-optional facility.

Presenters who wish are listed as Faculty of the World Polyamory Association. As one of our presenters, your listing on our web site links to a your description of the workshops you present for the  WPA. Your presentation will be archived and permanently listed on the WPA. Your listing includes a link to your web site, your biography and a link to your products page on your site.


Presenters get:

*A partial waiver of fees for the conference. We pay Harbin an Admin Fee per person and also pay the Harbin caterer that comes with the Conference Center a meals cost. Our presenters, as an act of generosity for the polyamory movement, actually pay these fees to help the poly movement. For the last 6 years we've collected less money than we spent to put on the Harbin conferences. WPA charges as little as it can.

*Free space to sell their products and display promotional literature.

*Free World Polyamory Association Membership for one year.

Presentations are a minimum of 1 hour. Workshops are usually 60-90 minutes.

POLYAMOROUS POWOWS by Sasha Lessin, worldpolyamory@aol.com, sashalessinphd@aol.com


Poly Conferences provide participants perfect places to contact potential lovers.  At conferences like the "Create and Enhance Conscious Polyamorous Relationships" at Harbin Hot Springs California this July 29-31, you can meet and quickly get to know people with whom you might fall in love--or at least in attraction enough to know if you want to consider as possible intimates.

Some polys get together in these conferences every year with lovers from other parts of the country, meet new lovers, learn techniques to make multiple intimacies ever-more satisfying.

Poly newbies learn in the conferences from us old-timers what works well as wewean ourselves from the monogamous matrix and find freedom and fulfillment with new soulmates and pod participants.

Some folks are monogamous most of the year but celebrate polyamory at conference time. Others make contacts and make arrangements to get together beyond the conference, even to create polyfidelous families or ongoing poly pods.

The seminars at a conference like the Harbin World Polyamory Conference offer structured relating exercises, discussions of pair dating, open marriage, triad formation and maintenance, as well as cuddle parties, group massage and yoga classes where you can talk to, touch and interview like-minded folk who, like you, seek multiple lovers and a community that supports the polyamorous lifestyles.

The seminars teach you how to advertise yourselves on the internet, deal with straight relatives, employers and Sarah Palins.

Conferences like these, springing up all over the U.S. and Europe, let you know you are not alone. You can love more and have more love for yourself and enjoy your lovers loving more. You learn there are techniques to keep loving more pleasurable and growthful and transform potentially painful interaction
into ecstatic multi-person loving.

This year we move again into our favorite venue, Harbin's Conference Center.

It's our private, gated, sex-positive celebrative community, complete with its own huge group room, breakaway areas, two hot pools and camping area. Harbin

Caterers dish up yummy food.

Camp, sleep in a group room or your RV. 

I’ll be there to welcome newbies, M.C. the program and facilitate your experience living in this real-life poly community for three days.
