Just like the Baltic sea gifting us amber, Amber Burn is coming to you as a gift from those who have been part of the Baltic Burn 2019 and Amber Burn 2020!
Amber Burn is a locally organized burn in Lithuania that is run entirely by volunteers following the 10 core principles of Burning Man – self-expression, self-reliance, community, no commerce, leave no trace, participation, inclusion, gifting, co-operation and immediacy. We all, including YOU, will create a more expressive and interesting reality.
As part of the Burning Man family, we are a community where everyone is welcome. No prerequisites exist for participation. It’s an environment that encourages the individual to rely on their inner resources and creativity.
Are You ready to become a part of Amber Burn?
we burn in
This summer, again, in a secret location, we will build a temporary city that will stand for 4 days (July 8-11, 2021) and will then disappear without a trace! We want to make it bigger and brighter and we need your help to fill the streets with life. The soul of our city is inspired by the Theme Camps. They are its vital energy and are entirely your creation. So whatever your passion might be – music, art, spirituality, food, learning, sports – connect with likeminded individuals and offer together an interactive experience to your fellow citizens. Let them play and enjoy!
THE 10 PRINCIPLES OF BURNING MAN
The community is guided by 10 principles of Burning Man - radical inclusion, gifting, decommodification, radical self-reliance, radical self-expression, communal effort, civic responsibility, leaving no trace, participation, and immediacy. These principles are not the rules - they are the guidelines for how we, as a community, can build the world and ourselves.
Burning Man co-founder Larry Harvey wrote the Ten Principles as guidelines for the newly-formed Regional Network, in 2004. They were crafted not as a dictate of how people should be and act, but as a reflection of the community’s ethos and culture as it had organically developed since the event’s inception.
Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.
We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavour to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.
Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.
Burning Man is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.
Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavour, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.
In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.
Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play.
Burning Man encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.
Immediate experience is the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves. No idea can substitute for this experience
Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient.

TICKETS & REGISTRATION
Want to participate in Amber Burn: New Normal?
And remember, NO REGISTRATION - NO TICKET - NO EXCEPTIONS!
Why are the Watches Three-Hours Long?
We have prayed into this issue and believe the Lord has directed us to build this prayer initiative on the tried and true model that Dr. John Mulinde and their team of intercessors established many years ago at Prayer Mountain in Kampala, Uganda.
Why do the Watches Follow Israeli Time?
The watches follow the Hebrew Calendar & Israel Time (IT). The watches also follow Day & Night as God declared in Genesis 1 - begin and end each evening at 6pm (IT).
There are three clocks shown as you enter your specific altar of prayer room. The clocks provide the current local time in Jerusalem, EST in the USA, and Uganda. You can coordinate YOUR applicable local time with the Jersalum clock shown to find the current prayer meeting in session.
Is There a Way to Communicate With Members of My "Watch" Outside of the Prayer Meeting?
Absolutely. As you meet with others on your chosen watch, you will develop meaningful relationships and can use your personal Profile page to have private conversations with others on the Altar of Prayer, much like a Facebook page. You may want to connect with members from your group in the "Small Group for After Watches" which is found in the top menu dropdown under the "Watchmen" tab. There is also an "Outer Court Forum" for topical discussions among members of the prayer groups. This page is also found under the dropdown menu from the "watchmen" tab at the top of the menu.
How do I Sign Up and Access the Altar of Prayer?
Click on the LogIn Icon found beside the top menu bar. Then, select "Sign up" and complete the registartion form. Your application will be processed and you will receive an email when the registartion has been approved. This process may take up to 48 hours. Once you have received your approval email please return to this site and join us in prayer. You will access the site using your email and password that you create at registration. To access the Altar of Prayer Meeting in Session - Go Directly to the Altar of Prayer Button found in the middle of the HomePage or in the dropdown menu on the top menu bar under the heading "Watchmen."
Can I Participate in More than One Prayer Watch?
Yes, once you are a registered site member you are welcome to participate in any Prayer Watch that is in session. However, if you do not join the Watch at the beginning of the meeting you are not permitted to participate audibly. In this case, we request that you keep your microphone on mute but you are welcome to participate through silent observation. This is because we believe prayers of agreement in unity cause God to command His blessings (Psalm 133) and unless you are there for the full watch, it is not possible to be fully in unity.
Is it Acceptable to Participate in a Prayer Watch Not in My Nation if I have the Language Skills to Understand the Prayers?
You have some awesome idea or suggestions about the event but not sure how to make it happen? Even better! Get in touch with us and we try to figure it out together!
