Sanity Cruz

Santa Cruz, California is our home base. We are a community of peaceful, fun-loving and environmentally friendly souls. Our Burning Man theme camp is based on tranquility, harmony, love and sanctuary. In times of chaos and turmoil in the world, in our lives and sometimes in our own minds, what we need most is a peaceful place to relax. Its time to slow down, be in harmony with ourselves and with others and to be nurtured and supported by our friends and lovers. We envision that the Sanity Cruz theme camp will offer a chill space where fellow burners can participate in a relaxing and rejuvenating experience.

We will have soft carpets and pillows to lie on, cool herbal teas to refresh the palate and a relaxing vibe to allow you to move a little slower internally and externally. We will provide massage tables, relaxing music in several large shade structures where our guests and the denizens of our theme camp may indulge themselves in their own portal to Heaven.

Shangri-la Village

Shangri-La is a Burning Man Village started in 2003 out of San Diego. “Shangri-La” has long been used as a name for heaven on earth. In Tibetan, Shangri-la means land of sacredness and peace. Shangri-la attempts to create that paradise here. Our true “Village” is the collection of people who have come together in this fine web of relationships throughout the year, bound by the commonality of attending Burning Man, and the love we share for each other.

Shangir-La will consist of at least 7 theme camps and interactive projects:
Rio’s Rodeo
Seisen’s Zendo
Sexophonic Fire Tribe
Free Beer Tomorrow
Massage Confessional & Diyafa
Medicine Wagon Depot

Do you desire for a safe place to explore sensual, non-sexual play and rediscover your inner playful child? Portland Friend’s and Lovers, LoveTribe and Explorer’s Club, present Snuggletown! – a safe, comfortable place to roam free in a healthy, affectionate touch-positive environment.

As our expression of this year’s theme, we intend to act as a fulcrum point between our inner needs/desire for non sexual intimate touch, as all humans need to be touched, and our outer ‘socially acceptable’ adult behavior. 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.
