2014 Burning Man project participants
AJ lives in Boston, MA, where he maintains a Christian Science healing practice and works in the administrative offices of The First Church of Christ, Scientist. When he first heard of Burning Man as a teenager, it sounded like the ultimate party, but since studying Christian Science he sees more spiritual depth to the world around him and expects to see that embodied in this event. Now his intentions for going are centered around helpfulness, thoughtfulness, alertness, and learning a ton about life and divine Love. His wife Amanda is happy he is going and is his biggest encourager to get out there and live like a healer. Website: ajkiser.com
Alexis is loving life, working to share the gospel in the Dallas Ft Worth area. She is active as a scenic painter, church member and professional appreciator of unplanned opportunities and friends.
Amanda loves creating things, chocolate and helping solve problems. She contributes a keenly analytical mind and thoughtful observations to the effort. She knits, folds origami and sails when time permits and superhero duties allow.
Andreea works as a strategy analyst for Chevron Energy Solutions and she is excited about exploring, innovating and finding meaningful ways to develop and share new ideas in both her work and Christian Science practice. This is her second time venturing out to burning man, and she is eager to share the spiritual ideas of Life, Truth, and Love that she has found so helpful throughout her journey to all spiritual seekers of Truth. She is looking forward to taking the new ideas that have flourished at BM and adopting them in her own CS practice.
Anna Lisa Kronman
Anna Lisa delights in good wherever it appears, in art, the universe, and man, and loves tracing it to its divine, infinitely good source. She knows how to wash dishes, feet, and thinking, having been a mom, Christian Science nurse, and now a Christian healer, as a practitioner of Christian Science. She is delighted to be joining in this team’s purpose to “behold the perfect man”, practice grace, and live the Golden Rule (her take on the 10 Burning Man Principles, and daily life).
Ansley currently resides in Los Angeles and is thrilled to attend Burning Man with this group.

She is a UC Berkeley graduate.

Genevieve is excited for her first time at Burning Man because she wants to learn how to love better – universally and unconditionally. She is looking forward to sharing the wonderful truth of Christian Science, which has proven effective in her life. She is hoping to bring what she learns back with her to continue to share Christian Science with the world.
Genevieve is a strategy and communications consultant for foundations, focusing on policy issues. She loves dogs, the Dodgers, the outdoors, and reading.
John Tyler, CSB
When John Tyler discovered Christian Science as a teenager, he wanted to shout the good news from the rooftops. He soon realized, however, it’s not words so much as selfless loving and healing which attract people to this truth. In his full-time healing practice of over 30 years, he has seen God heal many supposedly incurable cases. He loves sharing his understanding of the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s works on Christian Science. More about John here.
Julian just happened to be around when someone was needed to organize a lecture at Burning Man. Having sent books to the CS Reading Room at Black Rock City in the first year he witnessed the unfoldment of 2 hosted lectures at Red Lightning Camp in the second year and now a full theme camp in the third. He loves Science and would like to launch a CS Incubator to foster innovation and explore new ideas that when proven useful can be offered for adoption by everyone.

Mark A. McClintick
Aloha everyone! My burner name is my self composed Hawaiian name…MAMONALU!
The first three letters are my initials, the O is supposed to have a peace sign in it with the Earth behind it …Hawaii just to the left of the center line of the peace sign and the Americas on the Eastern horizon symbolizing world peace from a Hawaiian perspective, and the Nalu is the Hawaiian word for wave…thus my Hawaiian Burner name MAMONALU stands for the Mark Andrew McClintick World Peace Wave! I am married to my Beloved Rachel Anna McClintick for four years now! We are planting our Aloha Garden Of Peace on the Big Island of Hawaii!!
