Are any theme camps hosting opportunities for practicing meditation?

Thanks a lot, Scotto! Will the HeeBeeGeeBee Healer's website be posting details on 2007 offerings like the 2006 list?

Where will the camp be located?

I cannot speak for the webmaster of their site if and when it might be updated with 2007 events...

But you could go to the Playa Events Calendar:

http://playacal.burningman.com/day.php

and search on heebee and see what events have been posted there.
(There is a search link on the right middle navigation)

Meditation at BRC?

Thanks for the direction, Scotto! Yes!! I am definitely psyched- looking forward to allowing everything to simply BE while engaging in Playa Play... adrift on the sea of awareness... with 30,000+ outrageous "meditators" to float with! (thanx, Gyre)!

YES!

Gyre...

Actually, I am interested in activities that simply remind me to be the space rather than the content. That's what meditation means to me. Of course, there are many styles of meditation that are about controlling the mind to sort of force it into submission (exactly like your facetious imagining of forced meditation!) The environment and cacophony of Burning Man can turn controlling the mind into a big challenge. But ultimately the mind of the meditator must surrender to witnessing what is- whatever that is- if it is to transcend itself.

The challenge of the BM cacophony of sound reminds me of some of the Buddhist Tantric chanting I've heard on CD- perhaps you've heard them: the monks are chanting, chanting, chanting relentlessly and along with their deep resounding voices are these intermittent, frequent crashes of cymbals that sound like they are being dropped on the floor. To the western ear this at first seems horribly wrong and contrary to producing the "meditative state." However, perhaps these annoying, outbursts of sound that are impossible to ignore are the very thing that ushers the mind into surrender- allowing the natural state of innocence and awe to be revealed as the ever-present is-ness of true reality.

Blessings of the Inner Burn,
Tee

I've heard that there's a Bacon Meditation Camp where the idea is to let one's mind focus on the smoky, crispy goodness of the meat that doesn't taste like chicken.

PeTA members are encouraged to meditate on how this King of the Meats will not be going away anytime soon.
