Contact Camp - 4:30 & Destiny
I've just returned from a week long adventure at Burning Man in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada (USA). Made up of over 500 theme camps, Burning Man is an experiment in communal living, radical self-reliance, self-expression and inclusion. Click HERE for the Burning Man Mission Statement or HERE for its 10 principles. Contact Camp was where myself and over 100 other CI practicing "Burners" created a home base for camping and shared meals as well as jams, classes, performances, and other CI explorations.
I was impressed with what a big presence CI has in this immense city with so much to choose from. Every morning at center camp Contacters hosted a jam from 10:30 - 12:30 which was so popular it usually would end up running till 2pm! Being so central meant that hundreds of bystanders would get to witness and join the grace and beauty of our practice. Many first time contact dances were had here befitting to Burning Man's vision of participation and radical self expression vs. the specatator mentality which pervades so much of the rest of the world.
