Great Circle Spring 2017

The Call to Nomenus Great Circle
March 18–19, 2017

We trust in the wisdom of the ancestors and the hope of the descendants, as we gather to tend the roots of radicalism planted decades ago, and to bring that spiritual DNA forth in a new flowering of sacred service.

In this time of deepening change, we call on members and friends of Nomenus to gather together in service to the ongoing renewal of the church.  For this 30th anniversary year of Nomenus, and let’s gather to visualize our continuing evolution and explore new ways of being together.

Great Circle is more than just a meeting.  It’s a gathering for those who love this community and want to help it evolve and thrive—It is an intense and magical process with the power to transform our community and our relationships to each other.  

To do the work that lies ahead, we are creating interlocking consensus-based working circles, tightly bonded with love and trust, and surrounded by a supportive larger community. Participating in Great Circle is essential to that process.  

Great Circle is a container for us to create sustainable, consensual relationships between Nomenus, the Wolf Creek Sanctuary Caretakers, and the wider community. We want to look at problems that recur for Sanctuary residents: patterns of conflict, trauma, martyrdom, scapegoating and burnout. We’ll discuss the necessary business of keeping the Sanctuary and the Church alive and thriving, and we’ll vision our shared future. This is the moment we can set our course collectively and steer our magic forward. This is the time when we can create a vision for the future of Nomenus & our communities.

Come to Great Circle! Your perspective that is unique, valuable, and necessary. Please bring the piece that only you can bring.  Are you willing to set aside stories that say you have no power, your voice isn’t welcomed, your dreams are too grand, or the Church is not willing to change? Let’s live in a story where each of us is not only welcomed, but necessary.
