Carry the Nibana spirit
Together we're creating an amazing experience for a large group of people. To do so, we live up to the Principles, the Terrain Guide, the Checklist for Creating Safe & Inclusive Spaces, the Consent Guidelines and the Guidelines for intimate interactions between team members and participants. If you feel there are parts you can't live up to, raise this topic with a coordinator.
Take care of yourself
Check in with yourself regularly. Try to be aware of your emotional and physical state. Respect your body. Make sure you eat, sleep and hydrate well. Mind your posture and boundaries when doing physical work. Know that all emotions are welcome. Reach out when you could use support.
Besides the documents mentioned above, make sure you have knowledge of the structure of the Nibana team and everyone’s responsibilities, today’s program and special moments during the week, the terrain map and the meaning of the various horn signals. All this information can be found in the Center Camp.
We're doing this together. Know when you’re working and be on time. Know what’s expected of you, be proactive and take responsibility. If you can't do your work, inform the coordinator on duty. If your state allows you, find a solution yourself, for example by finding and instructing someone to take over your responsibilities.
If anything is preventing you from taking care of your responsibilities, communicate this within the team. Even if you’re not sure what it is you need. Know that everything is welcome. When you reach out, check if the other person has space to support you at this moment. If not, ask someone else.
Take care of your surroundings
Keep an eye out for other people’s physical and emotional safety, and for the state of the terrain and materials. When you encounter challenging situations with fellow team members, realise that this is only natural. When it happens, aim to take initiative to resolve this as soon as possible. For example by doing a clearing. You can also ask a coordinator or light team member for support.
Do your work in a way that serves you. Take your time to experience Nibana as a participant and have the week of a lifetime!
