Burning Man and associated Regional Events base themselves on some fundamental guidelines, or the 10 Principles. In this series over the next 10 weeks we will focus on each Principle in detail.
This week features Principle 10: Immediacy
Burns are about exploring comfort zone boundaries, experiencing new, exciting and maybe challenging ideas, sensations or feelings. Kiwiburn is no different. It may test your opinions or long held beliefs, if may force you to look closer at yourself, your role in society and on this planet. It may realign your perception of reality, push you to overcome barriers and enable new viewpoints you had not considered before. A Burn can be a life changing event. It can be life reaffirming, It can simply be fun, yet also challenging and testing. It is what you let it to be, however, only if you are immediate and present, giving into the immediate environment and nothing can substitute for this experience.
