Building on what was explored in Being Dusty, Being More Dusty is a more in-depth analysis of the underlying principles that make Burning events around the world a more progressive and inclusive and independent approach to life, and how we can integrate more of what makes the burns amazing into our regular life.
The 11 principles that underlie the event known as AfrikaBurn (and its parent, Burning Man) serve to help us all better people and live better lives in a world that had lost its humanity in favour of commercial gain. These principles are best observed while at the week-long event out in the harsh environment of the Karoo, a desert area in South Africa. Many burners revel in the community that comes together, connecting with people who care, easily befriending and being befriended, living with heart, in a society that allows you to just be you.
Often the emotional high achieved in this week of freedom and joyful play is counteracted with the harshness on daily living once burners return to the world outside of the desert, a world still governed by money over love and comradery.
Being Dusty explored the principles that have become synonymous with Burning Man-type events around the world, and looks at how we can make them a part of our regular life, and takes a step toward creating a new default world outside the borders of the events themselves. This book delves deeper into the same material from a more modern perspective.
