Listen here:

Did you ever experience a moment that so powerfully thrust you into the present, it altered the course of your life? 

That’s what happened to me at Burning Man. It's not just a festival, it's a transformative experience operating on a radically different set of principles. In today's conversation, we'll unpack these tenets, how the community adheres to them, and how they shape a world that's far from the portrayal you see online.

We'll also tackle how Burning Man has morphed over the years, with increasing attendance and the emergence of influencers using the event for brand promotions. But far from tainting the experience, we'll explore the opinion of a long-time burner who believes Burning Man today is actually better, despite some of the negative aspects. We'll also spill the beans on the practicalities of attending, busting the myth that it's a playground exclusively for the wealthy.

Don't be mistaken, though, it's not all roses. We'll delve into the importance of consent and boundaries in creating a safe, respectful space for everyone. We'll also share tips on getting tickets, even if you don't know anyone or are a first-timer. Despite the changes, the spirit of Burning Man endures - a spirit of immediacy, of radical self-reliance, and of living in the present moment. So, strap in for a journey into the heart of an experience that's about much more than just a festival.
