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 both radically self-reliant and also radically collaborative because burning man takes place in one of the harshest conditions on the planet so we all must band together and rely on each other during our time together at the burn.
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 we venture to make participating in camp easy, fun, and an experience of ecstatic volunteerism 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 to be a full contributing participant and NOT a spectator. I realize that I’m part of co-creating this home and the magic at mystic and I agree to contribute my unique gifts from a state of ecstatic volunteerism, giving joyfully. We are not a plug n play camp. The privilege of camping with us includes ecstatically contributing your gifts to the playa.
