THIS YEAR was my third visit to Black Rock City, the temporary city that manifests every summer in Nevada. I rarely take out my camera at the event, having learned from previous experience that it’s almost impossible to capture anything close to the energy and magic that is Burning Man.
After meeting author Darrin Drda, I made an exception.
I encountered Darrin through his free workshop, a metta meditation designed to connect Burners with ourselves and the work we are called to do in the world. At this time of great change and crises, it has become our duty to rise to the challenge, rather than retreat into dullness and the illusion of security.
