  Dancing the Twin FlameThe THEME for Decompression 2015 is....Dancing the Twin Flame

This year’s Decompression, a Burning Man tradition, will be a gathering between sister states, Arizona and New Mexico. Never apart, yet standing alone, holding hands at the border, where east meets west along arbitrary lines that do not separate us.

This is a love story, an undeniable union, one as two, two as one, a dance of twin flames. When irresistible forces of nature collide, creation happens, breathing life into the partnership of masculine and feminine energies. As air feeds fire, and water is supported by earth, so are two souls destined to grow together, through ebb and flow to the point of one.

Join us for a Powwow of deeper connection and circling the fire of unity. Where we have strength through alliance, we can surrender to the energy that dances between us. Let the dance begin!

“As the river surrenders itself to the ocean, what is inside me moves inside you” - Kabir
“We are the mirror, as well as the face in it” - Kabir
