Understanding the metaphorical story of our tribe is crucial to understanding what we are up to as a theme camp.
The Lumerian TribeCreated and named after a mythological legend, the Lumerian Dolphin Tribe, was a lost civilization dating back to over 25,000 B.C. The legend tells of great and highly evolved beings with powers of Gods and Goddesses who existed in what is now the ocean around the Hawaiian Islands. At the height of their glory they were known as magical, enlightened, playful and sensual beings who had the ability of bringing the divine good....or God, out in each other. As time went on, this civilization became too structured, too permanent and lost much of it's playful and magical qualities. All agreed to disappear for a season to rest and regroup, until time would call them back once more.
In a cataclysmic event, they were sunk, along with their cities.
Using their magical and divine abilities the Gods and Goddesses
became creatures of the sea, whales, dolphins, mermaids and mermen.
Lost to man for thousands of years, this tribe is said to have
completely physically vanished....without a trace. Meanwhile, the
Lumerians began to be lost unto themselves and forgetting their own
greatness, vanished in other ways. The knowledge of themselves was
buried within them, in the sea, waiting for the time when they would
begin to awaken and remember.
As we enter into this new age of spiritual awakening, we begin to see
glimpses of the Lumerian power and influence that has begun to emerge
out of the darkness of the depths of the sea. We, the emerging
Lumerian tribe, have begun to awaken, remember and gather together
again as bringers of light and knowledge. Just like the legend of the
Lumerians, many people today have forgotten their true and divine
nature long since buried within them.
In our Lumerian Goddess Temple, that we have so beautifully created,
we offer thoughtfully designed ceremonies and rites of passage for
those ready to don the mantle of their true power and magnificence.
Using props, rituals, and language as tools to give permission,
awaken memory and encourage self-expression, we offer the opportunity
to accept, acknowledge and embrace the beautiful and divine God/
Goddess within, allowing transformation. These rites of passage are
not for just anyone. It takes desire and some effort on the part of
the participant to let go of that which would otherwise make this
impossible and unavailable to them. We have had the opportunity to
see this work and to experience what this can make available for
people. It truly can make a profound difference.
Our contribution to Burning Man is the gift of empowerment,
enlightenment, and freedom in self-expression. Our activities are
divided into five categories. We offer:
