Oracle at Black Rock
Do you have a question? Everyone does. A visit to Oracle provides insight into your own life's journey in a safe, encouraging setting. We use Tarot, a powerful medium which we don't pretend to understand. For each person, the cards have a revelation. Other practitioners of healing arts are welcome to join in our space and extend their talents to the Burning Man community. We hope to join you in shared experience, whatever that may be.

Oracle at Erowid
The Oracle at Erowid is a bipolar theme camp, conjuring up an ancient balancing act and dragging it kicking and screaming into the psycho-pharmacological future. The two poles of the camp are the Erowid dome and the Oraculon, the famed haunt of the Oracular Madness crew.

Visitors face a choice when they step off the street: will they visit the Oraculon, with its caterwauling beat poetic improv hoe-downs, its loop-d-looping open mic featuring a maddening, illuminating stream of godknowswhat? Or will they visit the Erowid dome, which has hosted some of the smartest informal conversations on the playa, a friendly sanctuary where curious people who know nothing and know everything about psychoactive substances can feed their heads with information and able conversation?

Our Lady of Schlongs
Seventh year on the Playa... and they said it wouldn't last. (Of course I don't think we look a day over six.) I wonder if the Pope will stop by to help us celebrate... and get his meat inspected. Because that's what we do you know. And as always you'll get an ice cold beer when you get your meat inspected... right after the Pope.
