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!

~About one camp south of Burners With Kids camp (~100 families with kids).

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!

These are Gabriel’s photos from this year’s camp.

Anna Lisa’s pictures and thoughts from 2015 Healing Foot Wash at Burning Man

Each of my three years at Burning Man has been a different experience, each with different challenges and opportunities.  2013 was a year of just getting out there in that dusty, vibrating, lively place, learning that by our kind acts and loving embrace of all came by, we were living Church in an unchurchy place.  Finding a spot at the outer fringes of the Black Rock City, we washed perhaps about 100 pairs of feet, and gave away a lot of copies of Science and Health, the textbook on healing spiritually, by Mary Baker Eddy.  In 2014, we applied for and received “placement”, meaning our camp was recognized as being of sufficient value to have a designated spot.  We were placed close to some big sound camps, and across from the Spank Bank… and interesting answer to prayer about where to be placed!  Embracing the opportunity, we continued to wash feet to the amazement of many, sharing with folks who were interested what moved us to do so.  We probably washed at least 300 pairs.  In 2015, we were placed near the heart of the Center Camp neighborhood, and found people were both delighted and grateful for clean feet, and generally accepted the invitation to wash their neighbor’s feet.  Giving them that opportunity proved a surprising and very enriching gift for many.  Each day, all 16 chairs were occupied most of the day, with folks waiting (patiently) for their turn. We estimate that well over 1,000 folks had their feet washed.  Most of those 1,000 stayed to wash someone else’s feet.  Here are a few moments from my 2015 week.

Some more pictures from our time at Burning Man 2015. Over a thousand people had their feet washed and also had the opportunity to give the gift of washing feet at Burning Man this year. A lot of work and a great success!
