So You Fell in Love on Playa. Now What?

What can you do; it happens to the best of us. Love strikes like lightning out there. But now that it has happened and your heart is mightily aflutter…what next?

May I suggest listening to the latest episode of the Burning Love Podcast. Veteran Burner and therapist Dr. Beth Gadomski joins the show to share some wise words on love in the dust. Beth is this podcast’s dream guest. One of her clinical specialties is counseling Burner couples navigating the mysteries and travails of love on and beyond the playa. In this episode, she discusses the importance of integrating the best aspects of our Burning Man selves into our everyday lives to help playa love make the leap between There and Here. She also explains why the No Dogs on Playa Policy helps us fall in love faster.

Dr. Beth Gadomski

She did not dye her hair to match this podcast.

Happy listening.

    There is a difference between falling in love and falling in lust…
    The problem with English, it has one word covering “love” whereas the Greeks have seven…

    I feel in love 13 years ago on Playa, 12 years ago I married him on Playa. It’s been pure Bliss every second of every minute of every hour of every day since.
    We definitely keep our burning love alive.

    We’ve never fought, argued or said a ill word to each other.
    Fuck you, it’s magic ❤️
