Despite the Burning Man lottery catastrophe, Raised By Wolves has managed to secure tickets through pre-sale, lottery and theme camp ticket allotment. Most importantly, Raised By Wolves recieved three tickets through our new village, Sacred Spaces. Sacred Spaces Village is often positioned near center camp on Esplanade. You may remember them for their Chakra healing domes in 2010.
The mission of Sacred Spaces:
Sacred Spaces promotes the positive enrichment and alchemical transformation of the world known traditionally as “the Great Work.” Our tools include: the fine arts, education, spiritual practice, community activism, and social service. We see the universe as an interdependent web in which all things are mutually influential; therefore the health and well-being of all life is to be valued. In pursuit of this aim, we support improving the collective intelligence of humanity through the advancement of Science, Art, & Spirituality.
Raised By Wolves is extremely excited to become a part of this loving family!
We’ve got some great photos of our wolf pack and our wonderful Esplanade camp. We had a really amazing time on playa this year and we had so many positive reactions to our art!!!!
Here are a few of our photos from the Burn courtesy of Tristen Dubz. You can see more high resolution photos of RxW at Rites of Passage here:
If you had a great experience with RxW at the Burn please leave a comment or contact us at Raisedxwolves2011@gmail! We’d really like to hear from you.
Unpacking from PEX, scrubbing down and repacking for Transformus. We leave in 3.5 hrs for North Carolina and the beautiful blue ridge mountains. We can’t wait to gift Mysteria our Wolf Dome Coffee Den! I’ve been compiling delicious middle eastern tunes to sweetly serenade sippers during sultry sunrises. ❤ So Psyched.
Last night was our first ever fundraiser for Raised By Wolves–Cat Party!! Yeah, that’s right, to raise money for wolves we threw a party with a cat theme. It was an absolute roaring success! Bookspace, a burner owned venue in Philadelphia, hosted the event in their gorgeous spot. Silks were hung for our very talent wolf, Lisa and the illustrious Julia to perform daring feats of strength and beauty. All wolves rocked the bar, the door and the dance floor all night. Our resident VJ wolf, Geatan, killed it with his epic projections. We raged it till 7am and then broke it all down and got some Zs before heading to the Grimy Goblin Grotto to work on various camp projects. Completely epic, inspiring and beautiful. We can’t wait for Transformus!
Now that we’ve been back in the real world for a little bit, Dubz has been able to process all of our RxW Camping photos! Camping at the Farm was really wonderful! The space was practically dripping with spiritual energy and we were all able to really bond as a pack through play and work! The prayer flag workshop, hosted by Sprocket, was a terrific success. Each pack members creative energy and personality was synthesized into their magnificent prayer flags! Sprocket will be teaching another prayer flag workshop at Transformus!
On Wednesday a few of the wolves went up to New York City to the Kostume Kult Camp 2011 meeting at Madame X. The wolves introduced themselves to KK and shared our mission statement which was met with appreciative howls!!
Tonight Tigre will be hosting yet another mask making workshop at the Grimy Goblin Grotto! Expect more wolf headdresses in the near future!
Also RxW is heading to PEX Summerfest! You can read about us in the PEX Summerfest What? When? Where?! Come find our healing dome & howl with the wolfies! If you’ve got yourself a PEX map, we’re located in the top right hand corner! Owww Owww Owww!
Wooohooo! It’s really Burn season guys! And RxW loves it!!!
After we finished fabricating the dome we headed to our Raised By Wolves camping retreat in Rosendale, NY! We did some good camp bonding and then set up our dome! Well… in the middle of it we did stop to cool down at some local falls! The dome build was a total success even though it was done on Burner time.

Last week was really intense for RxW. We built our 24ft 3V dome! Thanks to the ingenuity of Dubz and the skills of Dave, Sprocket, Audrey, Tigre, Alysia (with help from non-cub but great friend, Ian) we were able to build the entire dome in three days! It was really incredible to be apart of. After cutting, bending, squishing and drilling 160 pieces of conduit the dome now exists! Look for our Healing Wolf Den Dome on playa in Nyrvana Village right on Esplanade. We’re also looking for anyone interested in leading healing practices (yoga, meditation, massage, performance) in our new space.
