2016 Theme Camps
Tantra Mantra is a camp dedicated to the transformation and transcendence of the human condition. We integrate ancient esoteric teachings of tantra with modern self-development techniques to create a unique environment for experiences that prepare the ground for evolution. To envision and prepare the world of tomorrow we need to rewire our nervous systems and free ourselves from the old paradigm. Tantra is an accelerator of evolution. The context of Burning Man serves as an amplifier to these ancient Tantric techniques. The collective ambition towards freedom present during Burning Man is unique. It erases differences between individuals and supports the Tantric effort of transcending all false dualities. From regular morning energetic practices to one-of-a-kind ceremonies and ritual, Tantra Mantra embraces and promotes the change towards a new human agreement. We leave a great place for spontaneity… Expect the unexpected.URL: http://tantramantracamp.com/Welcome.html Contact: email@example.com Hometown: San Luis Obispo

The Hunting Party
Sometimes has a greater chance
Of flushing love and God
Out into the open
Than a warrior
The Hunting Party is where movement and magic swirl wild forms in the dust. Exploring the mystical realms within and without, we stalk the many-faced prey of the One – we are the flock and the fledging, the church and the people, the dungeon and the steeple. We explore the ever-emerging edge of intimate truth and togetherness. Before, during, and after, we dance.
By day, we play with reverent abandon and reckless devotion in honor of each other – and what we create when we turn our heartbeams to a dynamic and fluid center. We serve homemade kimchi by the arched fingerful and deliver fresh, happy juices into keen mouths. By night, we play with spontaneity and serendipity, drunk only on the magic of connection and juice. The dome becomes a place to mellow out and venture into the frontierlands of mind, body, and spirit where we, the Hunting Party seek the We in You.URL: http://thehuntingparty.us Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org Hometown: Boulder

Once upon a time, there was Twinkii, the magical twini-corn with two horns instead of one. Twinkii loved tasty sugar cubes, hot water foot soaks, pineapple tequila and granting wishes with his magical wish-hole. But because of his second horn, he was laughed at by other unicorns, his wish-hole largely overlooked by creatures seeking tru magic.
Finally, on his 4th birthday he met the Horny Camp. Horny campers knew that two horns are better than one, and an unlimited number of horns is better than two. They loved Twinkii the twini-corn and both of his magical horns and his wish-hole. Together, Twinkii and his new friends, embarked on a great journey to enlighten the public on the subject of safe horn making, horn maintenance and… magic.
