While the fire and naked people certainly draw your eyeballs and make for great photos, it is the idea of â€œgiftingâ€ that has provided the most profound lessons for me from the Burning Man community.
At Last weekendâ€™s LA Decompression event I had an unofficial â€œHug Summitâ€ with Mikey (of Mikeyâ€™s Hug Deli) and we talked about the magic of gifting and how it can be a dramatic force in the default world as well as the insulated Playa. Maybe next time Juan Mann (the Free Hugs guy) can join us.
On todayâ€™s HugNation I want to get into a little of what we discussed.
