News from where we (probably) aren’t…

 

Diversity! Ten Principles! The culture chat continues; how do we apply this to our own country and community? Does it even apply? Read on! And make up your own damn mind. (PS: we hear there will be a whole series on these elusive principles… here is another one, keep your eyes out for more so we can geek out about #tenprinciples together)

CNN provides us with their take on Burning Man vs. the State. Ahhh 10-year permits; been there, done that…

Fly-geyser: the thing you used to have to sneak up to see, and now you don’t. If you ever head to Black Rock City, this beautiful piece of nature will be well worth the visit.

If you didn’t get your behind to AfrikaBurn this year, never fear! You can take the virtual tour (AKA watch the video) and save the worry. And if you want to get in early for the 2020 event, the dates are confirmed… April 27 – May 3!

Mmmm the sweet smell of burn-out. Sometimes you just need to (dare I say it) not go to a Burn; hmmm, Caveat Magister delivers yet another poignant post in the Burning Man Journal on these difficult transitions, rituals and knowing when to take a step back.

Have you heard of Auroville? Apparently it’s the ‘real life’ Burning Man, in Southern India (‘cos Burning Man is not real life, right?). A permanent community, it has sound healing, permaculture, solar energy, second-generation native,; a steady stream of tourists, and a natural drug called human resonance… is it some kind of utopia or just some flash spiritual place for rich tourists? This article compares Auroville to Burning Man.

Burn In The Forest (BitF) ! Tickets on sale, event is 18-21 July. If you’re in Canada maybe think about going, eh? According to their website: 1500 participants come together to create a Temporary Autonomous Zone. That’s nice, isn’t it?

Remembering Larry Harvey through his Odd Poetry.
