When entering the Vigil Ceremony evaluation, you will perform in front
of a maximum of nine other participants and one NOAC Evaluation Staff
Facilitator. All participants will arrive at the beginning of the evaluation
period at the designated venue, check in with their Facilitator, and
meet the other participants. One participant will perform the ceremony
while the other participants and the Facilitator observe and evaluate.
There will then be a short break so that all participants and the Facilitator
have an opportunity to make comments and recommendations about the participant's
We ask all participants to offer open, honest critiques of each participant's
performance under the guidance of the Facilitator. This is the most valuable
part of the process. All ceremonialists who fully participate in this
process will leave NOAC prepared to inspire others with their new knowledge
and deepened commitment to the ceremonies.
