Steambaths (for people who haven't been in one on the playa) are one of the most enjoyable ways for people to refuel and get clean during the burn. All of a sudden, you can breathe through your nose again! After days of horrid dry heat that strips your body of all its moisture, the steambath surrounds your body with nurturing water and makes you feel human again. It is a great way to take care of your body after a day of dust and dirt.
We've reached out to our friends at the Steam Bath Project, and they're helping us to build our own Steam Bath to share with the community! There aren't many steam baths on the playa, and there are always long lines for the ones that are open-- the more baths, the shorter the lines, the more clean people, and the more happy burners in BRC. We need your help to cover our expenses for getting the structure built and putting together the heating elements, benches, and shade, as well as the water, grey water disposal, and fuel for heating.
We've only got 3 days to go to reach our final goal to to get funds to purchase water, collect greywater, and buy firewood to generate the steam, as well as set up a nice area outside of the steam bath for waiting and re-acclimating after the steam! http://startsomegood.com/steambath.
Camp Contact is a theme camp that offers classes in Contact Improvisation Dance, Acro Yoga and other somatic and transformational workshops. We have recently expanded our focus to include that of Exploring Human Connection, through Authenticamp's famous Authentic Relating Games and Naked Heart's exploration of the divine feminine and masculine. -
