Susan Sarandon carried LSD guru Timothy Leary’s ashes in a Burning Man ceremony
BLACK ROCK DESERT, Nev. — Timothy Leary, the late father of LSD, was memorialized at Burning Man after a fantastic procession and burning of his ashes in the Black Rock Desert.
It was a spectacle that not even he probably could have imagined, as actress Susan Sarandon led a march with his ashes into a temporary church built as an art installation in the desert for the week-long festival.
The church was scheduled to burn as part of the event on Saturday after the “man”, a giant wooden structure, burned.
“I think he’d be so happy. I think he would have loved the chaos (of Burning Man). He would have loved it,” said Sarandon, one of Leary’s closest friends. “And all these people honoring him with LSD.”
