Hookas and Fire Bazookas – Black Rock City, Nevada, United States

To satiate my intellectual side, I attended a talk on The Art of Deliberate Creation at the HeeBee JeeBee Healers. Stuart accompanied me to listen while on installing LED lights into his costume for that night. I contemplated the 8 step process to focusing intention to accelerate the realizations of your dreams. The speaker was good but ended up forgetting a few of the steps along the way so I think we must have gotten the condensed version. It was really nothing I hadn`t already considered but a nice refresher all the same. read more

Tummy Troubles – BRC, Nevada, United States

I walked into the tent and glanced around at the expectant soulmates being interviewed in quiet corners. I asked how it worked and was presented with a questionnaire to be filled out. I sauntered over to the bar and began the rigorous process of answering the queries. It was much like one of these “Get to know me” emails that show up in my inbox occasionally. When I was done revealing my not so deepest secrets, I handed in my form and was instructed to wait. read more

Adopting my Gnome – Black Rock City, Nevada, United States

I arrived to Gnome Camp to find that I was just in time to make a gnomedome. I greeted my fellow crafters who were busy cutting, pasting, pinning and decorating their pointy little hats. I chose a pink furry material and cut lavender purple felt into the Burning Man symbol which looks sort of like this: )`( After I pasted it on, I added a few green leaves and stuck a big pink flower on the top. It fit my head alright but I thought it would be helpful to string a thin strap to go under my chin. There would need to be something to secure it from the crazy gusts of wind that are so frequent on the playa. read more

Healing Health Hour – BRC, Nevada, United States

After a short stroll, I wandered out and hopped back on my bike which only took a few minutes to locate in the mess of wheels and steel. I decided to head over to Ascension Tribe where they were hosting an Empowerment/Intention workshop. I wasn`t sure if I should enter as I was a few minutes late but I was kindly ushered in. I slipped off my shoes and parted the curtain to find about 20 people sitting on pillows. I quietly found a spot near the back and made myself comfortable. read more

What to Wear? – BRC, Nevada, United States

I woke feeling refreshed and positive, ready to start my day. I dressed in as least amount of clothes as possible as the sun was already heating the air considerably. Now I understand why people end up wearing lingerie, underwear or nothing. Burning Man is definitely a clothing optional type of festival and many people take full advantage of that. The first few days it would surprise me when I would see a random naked guy riding by on his bike or a woman wearing just a large sunhat strolling by. Then it just became part of the scenery and I barely noticed them. read more
