Camp Mystic Manifesto: Page 2 of 6
RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
One of the things that makes Burning Man and its culture so different is the fact that there are no spectators. Everyone participates.
There are no vendors (other than ice and coffee). Everyone must be radically self-reliant and because of it being in one of the harshest locations on the planet we all must also band together and rely on each other creating an intentional community for the days we are there together.
There is a special alchemy that it creates which makes it an incredibly transformative event like no other.
Leave No Trace starts well before you arrive on the Playa with being conscious about the purchases you make to limit consumerism, packaging, and educating yourself on how to do so.
Remember that many hands make light work and AFTER build is over (where we work like crazy all day and into the night - enjoying the hell out of the process along the way) we venture to make participating in camp easy, fun, and joyful for everyone. Your participation is what makes this possible. We have a few agreements we want every Mystic to make with respect to your participation:
I agree not to be a spectator but to be a full contributing participant. I realize that I’m part of creating this home for our tribe and I agree to contribute my unique contribution from a state of ecstatic volunteerism, giving joyfully.
