Inworld, we have been hearing news of the upcoming Conception event at BURN2. The setting is a Moonscape, the story goes like this:
Conception: A time to celebrate beginnings, and a time to celebrate the future, whether it is that of Burning Man, our experience with it, or the people we have and will come to know through it. How did we find these crazy folk we call Burners, how did we become Burners, and do we see a future Burning bright?
Sometimes it is good to look back at where we came from, so we can see how far we have come. A long, long, long, long, long time ago where we live now, looked much like our moon. So as we look back at the start of the flame this year, let’s do it under the stars on a landscape just waiting to come to life.
As a Lamplighter, when you think about birth, conception, the start of things, what comes to mind? For us, bringers of the Fire, bringers of light at dark, at Conception, we will bring the fire to the event, with a Procession. We’ll light lamps along a path to the central gathering place, and there we will drum and dance to start the Conception week.
You are most warmly invited to join the procession on June 22nd at 10:00am SLT/PDT. Camp. Everyone is welcome to follow the Lamplighters Procession. We will gather at the Lamplighters Village on the virtual Playa about a half hour beforehand, don robes, and form up for a silent procession around the Playa to the gathering place below Center Once there we will drum and dance and bring the fire to the event and the Conception event will be officially open.
