Who We Are
The Entheos Community is an active, growing and non-profit group of makers, healers, artists, thinkers, organizers and leaders from around the globe. We have gathered around our common interest in the exploration of healing trauma, raising consciousness and envisioning creative new ways of living in the world together. Many of us actively participate in healing communities, work in medical and psychological research, facilitate intimate experience with the sacred and are active participants in exploring the evolution of consciousness.
What We Do
We are growing a community that recognizes an awakened consciousness; that acts with spirit-centered purpose across national, religious and ideological lines; and that invites people to remember who they truly are. We create sacred spaces in unusual places and seek to plant enduring Entheos communities that nurture healing at home.
Entheos (or ἔνθεος, as it is written in Greek) is a word which means, literally, "the god within." It is the root of the English word "enthusiasm.” By Entheos we are not referencing a particular religion, faith or creed, rather we are pointing to a universal and personal experience of the sacred which we believe is most clearly recognized when we gather as a community with creative intention.
This idea is the guiding light of our largest annual gathering, the placed theme camp Entheos @ Burning Man, where Entheos artists, makers and performers, together with other camp members, build an interactive space of creativity through art, ritual, music, dance, fire, story, food and community, a space where others may discover and contribute their own ἔνθεος.
Entheos seeks to fully engage participants in Body, Mind and Spirit through artistic creativity, intellectual inquiry and soulful exploration. While founded in the US, the Entheos Community now has over 600 members in 37 countries. All of the installations, facilities, and activities described below are free and open to all in Black Rock City.
