"Post-cancellation KB community care & dreaming" Zoom - Today Sunday 22.03 @18:30

DU Alina, also known as Universe Public Seen by 125

I'm feeling the void and would like to come together online with you - the community of doers, thinkers and (Talk)ers.

1) to share and process together this very unusual moment now that we had to halt everything.

2) to exchange wild and nutty dreams and ideas about how KB could possibly look after we have digested the virus and can gather again!

A zoomy thing this Sunday (22.03) evening! Possibly 18:30ish, open to options! Would you join?

ooooh @waldo I could adapt your written meditation to current times <3


Franzi Sat 21 Mar 2020 2:54PM

I would love to.. I love the idea but I have event coordination team meeting. Maybe we manage to dial in afterwards ♥️


Jaina Hirai Sat 21 Mar 2020 7:18PM

Would be great if it were after the ECT, but either way I'm in. I've got Zoom on my tablet already...

please join here tonight at 18:30 >

Meeting ID: 863 920 822

It might be messy, I'm hosting for the first time :p

Love - poke your fellow Kiezburners to join!

P.S. I am flexible with time - so if a later meeting, after the core gathering, if still happening, is desired, we can also do that! Let me know. x

Meditation from yesterday. Read it each other, or call me, and I'll read it to you <3

(adapted from Waldo's Talk meditation)

Sit comfortably

And focus on your breathing

Allow yourself to be here, fully, in this moment


Feel the gravity slowly impact your eyelids

And close your eyes


Let the health scare of the default world fade from your awareness


If you find your mind wandering to empty supermarket shelves

Or the incoming lockdown

Don't let it concern you

Just acknowledge that this too shall pass


Gently and tenderly

Wrap your arms around your own body

You are here now

In this warm and cosy self-cuddle puddle


Enjoying your inner stillness

The hysteria of the media can't get under your skin anymore


Take a deep breath in

And breathe out


Take a deep breath in

And say "it's all good"


Just feel the fucking virus float away...

Take deep, loud breaths


Breathe in health

Breathe out corona


Breathe in hope

Breathe out fear


Breathe in civic responsibility,

Breathe out selfish bastards hoarding toilet paper


Allow your breathing to discover its own self-reliant, radically self-expressing pace...


In this inner world of tranquil, do not think of a whole summer without burning

Instead, imagine yourself approaching a friendly crowd of kind, loving, colourful blinky burners

They are joyfully waving at you

And calling you by your Playa name


Now Picture yourself joining this friendly crowd of kind, loving, colourful, blinky burners

Hear the soundtrack of your favourite burner music - at a volume that pleases you.


Your heart is full of joy,

Your heart is full of love,

Your heart is at peace,

You are not alone,

We are all here for each other.


If your thoughts drift to thoughts of loneliness and quarantine

Bring your attention right back to the warmth of our community


If your thoughts drift to a Kiez-burn-less summer

Bring your attention back to our creativity and ability to bounce back


With each breath you take

Feel your body saying we'll burn again


With each breath you take

Feel your body receiving consensual hugs again


Visualise your frustration at not being able to plan ANYTHING right now

Then take a deep breath in

And say "fuck that, I'm living total Immediacy"


Take a moment to appreciate the carelessness of burns past and remember how lucky you are to have that colourful, crazy and so loving chaos in your life


You are weightless, timeless, without beginning or end

Completely relaxed and free of stress


And as you slowly open your eyes

Take a deep breath in and say "alles wird gut"

Take another deep breathe in and say "we shall burn again"

We could make a Corona Dreams Platform where Burners can show the different activities that are taking place + maybe even link with donations?

Shitty audio recording of the meditation...

...for anyone needing a moment to breathe and have a laugh

Love you <3

Fuck yeah!!! would be a great outlet for all the creative sparkles locked down at home. and a great way to connect during this times while we wait to see each other again!


Franzi Sat 21 Mar 2020 3:43PM

It's scheduled for 7pm-8.30pm...but I haven't heard from them at all. So not sure if it will take place. I keep you posted.

@Franzi when does the ECT meeting end? would you like us to hold this after, so that event coordination peeps can join and process with us?
