It took me more than 10 years to get there. Hands down one of the best weeks of my life. For a moment in space and time, Humankind shines and glows with all of its wondrous beauty.

As a past attendee, I can attest to just how radical and life-changing of an experience Burning Man really is. Have questions or need advice? Burner: attended the festival at least once; pursues a way of life based on BM principles.
If there is a flat or partly secluded surface at Burning Man, someone will inevitably end up squirming on it with a partner of their choice. While not everybody goes to Burning Man expecting to have a ton of sex, sex is available, shameless, and no-strings-attached. In between all the high ideals of personal responsibility and reliance is the reality of a lot of people in booty shorts and nipple pasties, many of whom have decidedly open relationship arrangements.
The classic female nude has always been a favorite subject of artists. This beautiful woman was over 50 feet tall and was one of a series of three at Burning Man. Art, more than anything else, has been pulling me back to Burning Man since
Just me. Thinking thoughts, living life, figuring it out as I go along. And, no, I don't really know what I'm talking about.
I will dedicate my own practice today to women everywhere in this amazing time of metoo posts and consciousness-raising relating to gender inequality. If you want to see the full cover, you may need to do it in person. Nude Yoga Girl and the magazine are exercising compete freedom of expression in displaying nudity in such an out-there way.
A gigantic wooden sculpture known as "The Man" is engulfed in flames during the Burning Man arts and music festival in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. A woman riding in an outrigger fires a flame cannon over the heads of Burning Man participants as they dance in the early hours of the morning. A fire tornado emerges from the burning embers of the "Temple of Whollyness" as it burns at the conclusion of the Burning Man.
This is what it looks like when 60, misfits, freaks, adventurers, friends, overprofessionals, extreme amateurs, artists, musicians, scoundrels, heroes, and everything in between come together to build an epically alive desertart city that will disappear in just one week. The dust storm white-outs, the depth of earnest human connection, the dizzying energy and utter freedom… I am still reeling. There are varying levels of naked people up in here.
