Since the dawn of time, human kind has always lived close to the earth, in harmony with the magic and mysteries of this little blue planet. Only in recent years have we separated ourselves with walls and highways, buildings that block the sun, shoes that keep our feet from touching the soil. Take us back to our roots! The magic is still there, deep in the jungle and beneath the surface of the playa. We conjure it through ritual, art, music, dance, deep connection and wild celebration.
The Sacbe community brings this philosophy to Burning Man, which is now a ritual of its own. Created in good spirit, and in honor of all things “chido”, Sacbe is a celebration of human potential and a collective conjuring of everything that is magic in the world.
Through ritual and celebration, we retrace our roots back to the earth and each other. Since its conception, Sacbe has been committed to gathering community and protecting the planet by donating all proceeds of our event to support environmental non-profits. Our international tribe of artists, musicians, teachers, builders and innovators donate their time and effort to create the magic we share together.
The Man Burns in
With a focus on healing the earth and nurturing the spirit, our Sacbe community looks to the 10 Principles of Burning Man as guidelines for our own gatherings.
Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.
Burning Man is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.
In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.
Burning Man encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.
Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient.
Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.
We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.
Leaving No Trace
Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.
Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart.
Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience.
We believe that if we really manage to live under these principles and together with this we can share our essence, culture, values and nature of service that each of us has, the seed we can plant in people hearts can have a very big impact.
