Don't cry, Kyanite. We get many, many requests for this every year. The reaction is the same virtually every time. If you look at the very recent threads under yours, called "Share short stories for my project, please?" and "Please contribute!!! Personal research/survey" you will note the ePlaya subculture's clear reluctance to be quizzed and categorized and have their stories mined for theses.
It's not personal--we don't know you. But that's also
one reason some of us don't want to answer you. It's an intimate question from a total stranger. (If Kinsey had sat down next to me at random in a coffee shop, I wouldn't have told him about my sex life). Most of us don't care to be studied, or to recount a spiritual moment at random. Spirituality is fraught. It can be serious, or embarrassing, or private. Some of us just bare our souls only to friends. But we'll talk about swamp coolers and monkey huts all day.
People may be more willing to answer these types of questions in person on the playa. Chill some champagne and invite the neighbors in.
Let go of your assumptions about Burners (there are angels and asshats alike) and release your expectations of the event. Focus on your physical & logistical preparations. Heck, maybe you'll get some good PMs anyway.
