"I still can't believe I went to Burning Man this time last week! @kaiagerber and I got a last-minute invite from friends and we looked at each other and said "why, not?!" We were so fortunate to go with experienced "burners" who took us under their wings and showed us the ropes," Cindy wrote.
"It was everything I hoped it would be and so much more. The surreal ruggedness and inspiring beauty of the playa enabled me to reconnect to my maiden self— adventurous, fun, curious and carefree.
"Sometimes the roles we play in "real" life disconnect us from our most joyous selves and only when we are so far out of our comfort zone, we have no other choice but to look within."
