and of course, all the amazing artists of Burning Man.
“Burning Man is one of the most amazing art experiences on the planet. This hyperlapse gives a glimpse into the magical world that exists for a week out of the year in Black Rock City. Putting it together used over 5000 individual photos and about 60 hours of work. This is just a fraction of a percent of the amazing art on the playa and you should definitely go and participate in the adventure yourself if you already haven’t! Music by the ever amazing Charles the First” – Jacob A

Just throw on some of your favorite Playa house music and pretend you’re basking in the Black Rock City sun.
The ceremony at Oregon Eclipse 2017 was beyond anything I’ve experienced. Yes, it was Epic, and I use that word often, but here I use it in the full meaning of the word….. Symbiosis Gathering had built a gorgeous Sun Temple at the rise of the hill, with a central arena that felt as ancient and grand as those of the Greeks and Romans. 30,000 of us gathered around the arena and snuggled with loved ones to watch the Eclipse.
Why I Believe Oregon Eclipse (Fest) To Be Pivotal & Historic
I’m not a scientist, but this is my understanding of Imaginal Cells. The caterpillar in the cocoon doesn’t grow wings and come out flying. Rather, it dissolves into a high potency goo….then, science says, mysterious cells start appearing in the goo, single cells that are not made of the goo but are completely new and unique. These “imaginal cells” begin to double, and then attract to one another, forming clusters. Then the clusters begin to find one another…..eating the goo for nourishment. This continues until a complete Butterfly is formed, and something wonderous pops out of the cocoon.
I’ve watched this movement and been part of it for a very long time. [Read more…]
