Our own personal universes will be explored as a microcosm of the larger universe.

Join us as we host a variety of events and workshops, covering a range of sexuality & sensuality issues, as well as a personal meditations dome, "feed your lover" dinner, classes for all including movement, boundary acknowledgement and expression, intimacy building workshops and tantric puja.

Sol System
Are we alone in the universe? Sol System believes that, as a community, our shared experience will create a powerful signal to send an Invitation to the Galaxy Beyond. Described as Light, this signal is synchronized to the beat of music, producing a pulsing environment encouraging the shared experience of Dance, to heighten the power of the Invitation. This pulse of light is then shot down the Sonic Runway at the speed of sound, sending the Invitation outwards, inviting the rest of the playa, the world, the galaxy, and beyond, to join us. And on rare occasions when a series of interactive stations (seated within the stone slabs) around the dance-floor are simultaneously triggered, the Light of Unity will erupt, acknowledging that we are indeed are a community, and not alone.

The Cult of E.R.I.C.
The Cult of E.R.I.C. is the home and hub of 4 major theme camps in Black Rock City this year.

"Cult of E.R.I.C." was born out of the amazing connections between strangers that are born at Burningman. Come hang out at the "Ballyhoo Bistro" and have a drink, make some art, dance on the "pole" or find a soft place to land in the "snuggle palace". Either way, you will feel at home here...

"Burning Silicon" is the home of one of the busiest Burningman communities in America. Come and find your neighbors, interact with a host of ineteractive projects, and most importantly, connect with the people who make this community a great place to burn year round!

"Radio Electra" joins us this year as they transmit to BRC music from some of the most interesting and eclectic DJ's in BRC.

"Scarab" will be host once again to their own brand of interactivity. Check out their listing in the theme camp guide!!!

The Orphanage
Our camp's called "The Orphanage," because everybody's been kicked out of somewhere, and this is your chance to buck the trend. Half halfway house, half carnivale, it's a friendly, welcoming place, where we'll take you in and care for you -- for as long as you can keep us amused.

The Orphanage offers its space to people from other camps who need to be somewhere else for a while. There will be a large space for unwinding, as well as many small areas of games and variety, loosely modeled on the idea of the carnival 10-in-1, united under the common theme of entertaining and being entertained. We'll be running a 24/7 variety show filled with different activities and pastimes to keep everyone on their toes. And there will be a kissing booth. And a bar.

If a passer by wishes to sample this fine drink they must deserve it, a kind word, song, good joke, or something in exchange will do the trick. The participant will the be sent directly to Hell, the evil side of the bar, it is like the bars back alley. Here a luge will supply the burner with a shot of this hot liquid, that should blast them to a higher plane of consciousness in the cosmos, and so they may exit hell. Burners are encouraged to hang out back at the Red Rocket bar and bringing beverages (preferably alcoholic) to share with others is always good, as one can only stand so much fire water.

'There Will Always Be An England'. So said... someone.
England - Blake's New Jerusalem

Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?"

Of course they did, and of course it was.

But when the clock strikes four, you'll remember reading this and motate, rotate, and go straight towards the wettest and cheapest happy hour on the playa: Camp DeNile. The Green Room, the sous chef's pantry, the back lot to AREA 47. Where the playa Rat Pack come to cool their heals in preparation for long nights of Promiscuity, Alien Love, and Revirginization. Well pre-function till sunset, then feign usefulness and help the rest of our village get their groove on. Music: World and beyond. Drink: Three signature cocktails: Traditional Embalming Elixir, Prescription Only Strangelove, and our seductively terrifying fizzy-shit, the Amber Alert.

We're not shrinks, in fact we may enable your entire BS with the crowd we attract. Not to worry, what nature doesn't draw out, our bartenders will. One way or another, youll get your fix when we fire up the Oasis of DeNile (our ever-expanding art car) for a drink-pouring, world music-pumpin, sunset tour of the playa. Hot showers provided en route for those in need. Bring a towel, bring a friend, bring some water to share, let's see if group hydrotherapy isn't in your future. Weekdays: 4p to 6p, peaking Thursday, when well re-shingle your shack(whatever that means) Well pump it up and give it away. All of it. Thursday night! Be there or don't. One way or another, you'll remain in DeNile. Aloha.
