Some Burners are evangelical about the Burn culture and the deep reverence that arises from the celebration of life, its joy, its sorrow and its fleetingness. Others see it as a secular experience. All are welcome.


Like Burning Man, Emergence will feature a Temple where the community can grieve, pay tribute, honor and celebrate the experiences, loves and beings who have touched us. On Sunday evening we burn the Temple and the offerings left in it in a sacred and silent ritual. You are welcome and encouraged to bring photos, mementos, and letters to be consumed by the flames.
