What is Burning Man?
“Trying to explain what Burning Man is to someone who has never been to the event is a bit like trying to explain what a particular color looks like to someone who is blind. In this section you will find the peripheral definitions of what the event is as a whole, but to truly understand this event, one must participate. This site serves to try to paint a picture of the Burning Man experience to those who are new to the project, as well as to give those participants looking to keep the fire burning in their daily lives an environment in which to connect to their fellow community members. For a brief yet eloquent overview of the entire event from the time of arrival to the time of exodus, please read “What is Burning Man?“, an essay written by participant and one-time web team member, Molly Steenson. Please see archived sections for each year to read more about the art themes, art installations and theme camps for each year.” More info here: http://www.burningman.com/whatisburningman/
Why are we going to Burning Man?
To share and experience divine healing and love in one of the most creative and extreme environments on earth.
Is this sponsored/approved by any official CS organizations?
This is an independent group of dedicated individuals, coming together for this purpose. The Berkeley CSO is assisting with various aspects of the project, but is not an official sponsor. There is no official sponsor.
Can I drop by?
We’d love to see you there! We’ll post our location and schedule of events here as soon as they’re ironed out, so keep checking back! Feel free to get in touch with us about meeting up 🙂
Isn’t pot (and other drugs) a huge part of Burning Man?
While many participants at Burning Man take pot or other drugs as part of their experience, there are many others who abstain, choosing to enjoy the artwork, creativity and community sober. CS @ Burning Man participants are committed to participating at Burning Man in a manner consistent with the principles of Christian Science — this means staying sober and protecting our clear thinking so that we can best accomplish our goals.
