Who We Are
The Entheos Community is a global collective of makers, healers, artists, cultivators, scientists, and leaders on six continents from more than forty different countries. Many of us actively contribute to transformational communities, work in medical and/or psychological research, innovate at the intersection of technology and culture, facilitate intimate experience with the sacred, and study the evolution of consciousness.
What We Do
We are a community that:
- Explores the mystery and science of consciousness;
- Acts with value-centered purpose across all national, religious and ideological lines; and
- Gathers regularly to experience what we have learned with those who are discovering their own entheos.
We create sacred spaces in unusual places to celebrate the mystery of life and we work to connect Entheos communities globally that cultivate healing and transformation locally.
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.
