Tensions from 'outside' / non-Partners

Howdy folks - question.

I remember hearing during Practitioner Training I believe, something about anyone can bring a Tension, even if they're not in a Role or appointed as Circle Member.

If so, how? And where in the Constitution is this described? I do see in 3.3.1 that the Links can invite, and know that policies can be built to allow guest attendance.

Does this 'bringing of Tension for processing' imply that any human may do so even someone that is not by definition a Partner of the Organization?

It would be very useful for my team to get clarity about all of this and to additionally be able to point to specifics backing up or disproving how a non-Partner can participate or not, whether by invitation or open door.

Thanks much, eager to learn!
