Healing Foot Wash 2022 Moop Clear

We take the Burning Man “Leave No Trace” principle very seriously as part of our camp.  Once again we left no trace of our camp once we departed (as indicated by a clear / green indicator on the 2022 Burning Man MOOP map (we were located at 3:30 & G last year).  LOTS of neighbors however had red hot spots, and apparently last year there were way more tent stakes left in the ground than ever before. Read the full report here.

The Healing Foot Wash: Life Truth Love camp at Burning Man will be returning again in 2023 (already have our core camp tickets secured). If you’re thinking about camping with us this year, and think you would fit well with our vision, please contact Gabriel (gserafini@gmail.com) for more information.

Healing Foot Wash is returning to Black Rock City in 2022! Placement Questionnaire Submitted

Thanks to Stepheno & Anna Lisa for helping prepare our Placement Questionnaire for 2022 Burning Man.  We’re very excited to be returning again.  Stepheno (our current official camp main lead) prepped an amazing actual-to-scale basically professional layout. Way better than my Illustrator mock-ups.  Check it out, and hopefully we’ll see you in the dust SOOOOON!

We’re bringing a minimal version of the Healing Foot Wash camp to the Black Rock Desert this year, from ~August 29 – September 4, 2021.  Since there is no official Placement process this year, we’ve “placed” ourselves, and will see how it goes once we get there.

Approximate Estimated Location: ~ 7:45 and D (on this year’s grid, remember, most likely limited or no street signs).
~About one camp south of Burners With Kids camp (~100 families with kids).

This is our target initial rendezvous point, as of tonight’s planning call, subject to change, but we’ll try to update final coordinates once we’ve established base camp.

We’re planning on bringing 6 sitting chairs, 100 gallons of water, all our usual foot washing supplies!

Once again we are very grateful to the Burning Man Placement team for including us as a placed theme camp. We’ve now washed thousands of feet at Burning Man, and are looking forward to another great year.

Of special note this year — we’re planning to offer an after hours self-service foot wash station that will allow participants to use our setup in a limited way during evening hours when the main Healing Foot Wash camp / experience is closed. Hopefully we’ll see you out there!

Gabriel’s 2016 Healing Foot Wash Burning Man Theme Camp photos

This was our 4th year bringing the Healing Foot Wash camp to Burning Man. We had a great team this year and welcomed an estimated 1400-1800 people to our camp to participate in foot washing. Once again, people were moved and touched to be offered both the gift of having their own feet washed as well as the option to give that same gift to another visiting person. We were fully packed during our open hours from 9:30am – 5:00pm, Monday through the Saturday morning before the Burn. Thanks again to everyone who participated!
