Just as the weight of the world begins to take a toll once more, we gather together for a magical day and night surrounded by art, music, and friends.  It’s a chance for our community to reimmerse ourselves and reconnect, and for the curious to get a tiny taste of what Burning Man is all about.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve returned from your first trip to the playa, your twentieth… or you’ve never been at all.  All are welcome to join us at Seacompression and experience all the creativity and joy that our community has to offer.

It’s tough to return to earth.

The playa is like another world… in culture, in aesthetic, in environment.  You immerse yourself, become a citizen of Black Rock City, embrace their values, and then, almost as suddenly as you arrived, you’re gone, thrust back into the day to day world.  Back to jobs, to homes, to bills… to a world where handshakes have replaced hugs, business casual has replaced costumes, and hold music has replaced sound camps.

But it doesn’t have to be that way!

As summer turns into fall burners worldwide come together once more within their local communities.  Art gets pulled from storage, theme camps regroup, DJs gather their music, and fire performers restock their fuel.  We surround ourselves with what makes Burning Man special for one final day and night to help ease the pain of readjustment- to help us decompress.


In Seattle, we call this event Seacompression. 

Join us in Georgetown on October 20th.
