The Big Room is an invitation to the all of us and the all of our community to explore the diverse and disavowed in ourselves and in the other. It is a space where all states of awareness, voices and frameworks of reality are important without exception or exclusion.
We are aware that bringing such a space into the community requires awareness of our own rank and the privileges associated with it. Rank brings with it many uncomfortable truths about our selves and the communities we live in.
To disown our rank either though lack of awareness or in the act of handing over our authority to an institutional power, be it lay or religious, perpetuates the abuse of those with less rank and privilege.
The ethos of The Big Room is not based on any fixed ideas of right or wrong, in or out, but in a dynamic that finds its truest and fullest expression in the following precepts.
We cannot disown our rank and the privilege and power that comes with it but we can own our humanity.
