We finally arrived and were warned at Greeters that there were 40-50 MPH wind storm gusts predicted for that evening, so batten everything down that we didn’t want to blow away. We would have multiple white-out windstorms over the next couple of setup days but made the best of it and had a great time getting everything setup for our Healing Foot Wash camp.
We rented our truck from the good folks at Doherty Truck Rentals again this year. Packed and ready to roll!
Washing feet at Burning Man results in some gray water that needs to be evaporated or brought back home. We’ve been working on building an evapotron to help evaporate water while we’re on the playa. Mark, Rachel and Anna Lisa did a great job on this!
We were asked to move our Burning Man theme camp stuff out of the Berkeley CSO basement and storage space. It was a good opportunity to consolidate and find a new home for our infrastructure.
We’re excited to have been given Placement for 2015 Burning Man!!! In 2014 Healing Foot Wash camp was located at 9:05 and I. This year we have been Placed at 5:30 and B. This is very close to Center Camp and will put our camp right in the heart of all the action.
It is our pleasure to inform you that Healing Foot Wash has been officially placed for Burning Man 2015: Carnival of Mirrors!
Your approximate location is 5:30 & Ballyhoo and will measure approximately 100 by 50. If your dimensions contain a + or – sign, it means your camp is an odd shape.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at Burning Man this year! Come by and have your feet washed and join us in washing feet yourself. 🙂
Thanks to help and urging from Rainbow Rachel and Anna Lisa, we just finished our 2015 Burning Man Placement application for Healing Foot Wash. Hopefully we’ll get placed into the 6:00 sector this year, but if that doesn’t work out second choice is 9:00 streets or plaza area.
Healing Foot Wash
We are bringing foot washing to Burning Man for the third year in a row. We have a proven 4 step process that uses a total of about 1/2 cup of water per person and leaves them feeling wonderful, refreshed and relaxed. We have a beautiful 40’x60′ open shade structure that encourages visitors to wander into camp and sit in our comfortable and sturdy chairs. We have a single rule for the foot washing experience — You must have your feet washed by another person before you are allowed to wash someone else’s feet. Each visitor is encouraged to participate both as a recipient and as a giver. Our visitors regularly spend between 15 minutes to several hours enjoying the oasis environment. This is a true practice of love and service, operating from just after breakfast (~9am) to dinner time (~6pm) every day.
Here are some experiences camp members had last year:
Primarily Day Time,Acculturation for First time Burners,Chill Space,Create an Environment,Entertaining Guests,Environmentally conscious,Meditation,Services Rendered,Shared Experience,Theme-related activities
Number of Campmates
16 to 20
We invite each visitor to directly participate both as a recipient and as a giver of a fantastic foot wash experience. This is both practical and loving, and is one of the best gifts we know how to give.
We have a 40’x60′ established shade structure that provides billowing silver shade cloth protection from the sun. It is 12′ tall in the center and is open on all sides.
We have carpet and beautiful heavy cushioned chairs for people to sit on and relax while their feet are being washed. Each person is encouraged to stay as long as they wish.
We use primarily batteries and solar panels for power needs. No generators.
Tents and vehicles are kept near the back of the camp. The feeling of the camp is very open and welcoming.
