Opulent Temple Burning Man 2008


Burning Man 2008

American Dream

Black Rock City, NV

2:00 & Esplanade

We know you came to dance. And to bask in the sweet spot with the tickle of bass, fully alive. Bonded in this moment of shared peak experience, showing up to stand in the space that you are. Let’s use the party not just to be, but also to do. Drawing strength to engage with a clear mind and open heart. Using that wisdom for the insight to not fear death, to build our courage to stand against the tyranny of the Age. To find ways, in community, to evolve beyond the collision course with cold truth we’ve been complicit in. This is why we do what we do.

And we intend to have a kick ass time while we’re doing it. It’s important to us that you know, no dj’s gets paid to play, ever. Almost all contributed in some fashion to our existence this year. We built everything you see in our dance area ourselves. We get no help from the BM org, and that’s a shame. We have your support though, and we thank you deeply. We’re always needing and appreciative of donations if you’re moved (see donation widget in sidebar).

We look forward to creating this dream with you.
