Rainbow Bridge

This year’s theme, Carnival of Mirrors, asks: who is the trickster, who is being tricked, and how might we discover who we really are? Our response is that humans can discover their true nature through yoga and meditation. Self-discovery is a process of lighting up the mythic metaphor of the “rainbow bridge.” Anodea Judith writes that “on our journey through life, the chakras are the wheels along this axis that take the vehicle of the Self along our evolutionary quest, across the Rainbow Bridge, to reclaim our divine nature once again…to restore the Rainbow Bridge is to reconnect to our own divinity, anchoring it in the world around us and healing the rifts that so plague our world.”

In interacting with other burners, we would like to focus on 7 chakras over 7 days. We will offer a daily practice tied to each Chakra leading up to the lotus / crown / diamond chakra the day the man burns.

Raised by Wolves

So do we – almost an hour a day of unfettered frolicking, chasing, tagging, hopping, skipping, jumping, so long as you don’t linger too long over lunch! “RECESS!!!” will capture this magic – there will be an elaborate magical playground to inspire play, an daily unschedule of fourth grade games, and a grumpy lunch lady who will reward and resolve disputes with spankings by wooden spoon.
