Local Burning Man

Celebrate life with immersive community events guided by the principles of Burning Man.

ABOUT THIS PATTERN



Burning Man is an event that creates a temporary community in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. Through intense immersion in participatory living, participants are socially “de-programmed” from consumer and transactional mindsets; exercise new social muscles to engage strangers; offer gifts while expecting nothing in return; and propel themselves to participate in first-time experiences rather than simply observe. Such an experience undoubtedly increases people’s receptivity to change and awakens them to a more active state of being. This personal transformation can still occur through in-town gatherings informed by the 10 Principles of Burning Man. This Pattern includes:

  •      A Participatory Community
  •      The 10 Principles of Burning Man Applied to the Neighborhood
