Rabbit Hole

It is what you want it to be

Hometown: Concord

Radiant Seed

Radiant Seed is a temple devoted to radical ritual and reimagining our relationship to the wild. Radiant Seed is specifically attuned to elemental sacred expression and the cultivation of primal instinct through embodied devotional practices.

Our offering to the playa is the Temple of the Black Sun. Here, you will encounter interactive ceremonies and radical rituals that promote aliveness at all levels, as well as alignment with the energetics and body of the Earth. Ceremonies and activations will be offered twice daily at sunrise and sunset to explore the energies of the threshold and what that space might hold.

Come experience and explore your true nature with us.

Ragnarok is the End and the Beginning. It tells a story where destruction is necessary for creation to flourish. It is rebirth, it is recovery, it is rejuvenation, it is a renaissance, it’s renewal, restoration, and resurrection. It is what we are experiencing in our lives right now. It is Burning Man. And now, it’s us. We are camp Ragnarokk!

Raised by Wolves

A real wolf pack is primarily composed of brothers and sisters. We’re not related—or wolves—but we do yell at the moon a lot. Raised by Wolves is a community of artists and doers who gather together in the desert to create epic fun, howl at the moon together, and invite everyone in to share our space and run with the wolves.

We serve iced cold brew coffee EVERY morning, have the playa’s most banging hip-hop/reggae dance party—complete with Dark ‘n Stormys—and lots of opportunities to move your body in our dome.

You’re welcome for being your favorite memory on playa.

Religious As Fuck

We are a bunch of people that speak openly about our relationship with God. Some of whom simply have found Christianity as well as other faiths to be helpful in our own spiritual journeys. When we interact with people at Religious AF, we are there to welcome them, serve them and answer their questions. We aren’t recruiting them, or asking them to join anything. We practice Radical Inclusion, conversation, prayer, and ritual to all who seek it: gay, trans, straight, high, sober, clothed, naked, polyamorous, monogamous, celibate, gracious, and grumpy alike. We have welcomed people in all of those categories and more because we also identify as those folks. We want to participate and co-create experiences that open hearts and connect us with the Divine.

A functional, safe, and easily-identifiable bike is key to an enjoyable Burn. During two events early in the week, we help Burners individually decorate their bikes and light them for nighttime riding while listening to live Jazz.

Rest in Peace

You have been riding for what seems like days, impossible to decipher what time it is, the city has swallowed you and sent you deep into the suburbs. Your butt needs some reprieve from that skeleton bike seat that (accept it) looks way cooler than it feels. Then you see it in the distance: a shady oasis with comfy seats, tables, and liquid refreshment seats. Could this be heaven? Close, it is Rest in Peace where you get peace, love, and chill. Late afternoons: Chill games, D&D, Meditation, Unbirthdays, Body paint, and M&M drinks (Margaritas and Martinis). And at night: find your way home with a beautifully lit peace sign.

ROCK 'N' Mountains

This is where you lost yourself in an uncontrollable-body-shaking frenzy of ROCK ‘N’ ROLL, surrendering to your alter ego that loves to shred solos on broom sticks, belt into dildos on mic stands, slam out the keyboard section on ironing boards as you look over to see your drummer swallowed by the crowd, now surfing. WE WILL get you ROCK hard
performances by night, where YOUr crew are the stars of the show, potential winners of the Battle of the Prop Bands.
After waking up in our hammocks, and thinking it all must’ve been the best dream you’ve had in years, we take care of you the next day with a soft landing at our homey, grungy day-drinkin bar with lawn games, slacklines, and snow peaked shenanigans somehow in the middle of the desert.

It wasn’t all a dream.
