There's a lot happening isn't there?
We are still dealing with Covid, there are 3 million new refugees coming out of Ukraine, and to increase awareness of all the other (and non-white) refugees in the world it feels important to acknowledge that there are 82 million displaced people
in the world. fleeing for their lives from similar conflicts and lack of safety.
How are you dealing with it all?
Are you feeling in shock and paralysis or numbness?
Are you closely connected to Eastern Europe, with tremors of past traumas in your homelands resurfacing in you.
Do you feel mobilised into doing something?
Are you scanning the news fervently trying to find some understanding or stability? Or are you tuning out of the news completely?
Are you tired of hearing 'How the (war in Ukraine) will change everything?' (substitute the latest crisis between the brackets)
In an attempt to create an open, welcoming, supportive and generative space, The Conflict Transformation Weave
and Laura Harvey
welcome you to a space to explore personal and collective responses to the Ukraine/Russian/Current global crisis.
We will begin by hearing from NVC community members who have connections to responses happening. Then we will break out into spaces for you to
- Prayer space (if requested) with community members
- Live Empathy space with community members
- (Come as you are now…whatever your response is, including no response and numbness)
- Information and Digestion space - Add your useful resources here
‘Unjustified but not unprovoked’ - what does this mean?
How did we get here? what’s going on?
Sharing resources. Share what you are digesting? Come and listen as hearing someone else digest gives you information
- What is the nonviolent/NVC response to this?
(The Information and Digestion space and What is the nonviolent/NVC response to this crisis? will be recorded and we invite requests from people to stop recording when they speak. These recordings will be shared to riseup and for people who can’t be here tonight and who request to be included. We are trying to meet needs for inclusion, information sharing, expansion, learning with the strategy of recording.)
No need to book - just come along. Here is Zoom link
Meeting ID: 857 8756 0110

Remember the time: 7pm - 8.30pm on Thursday 17th March
