Workshop & Listening Circle - Taking Care of Yourself in Uncertain Times

You are invited to join the Violence Prevention & Response staff for a Listening Circle. This is a time for all of us to hold space for truly listening to each other. Come share the contents of your heart and mind without fear of interruption, come listen deeply without the pressure to respond. There will be time reserved at the end to discuss ideas and insights gained.

After the Listening Circle, we will host a workshop, Taking Care of Yourself in Uncertain Times, dedicated to talking about, and planning for, times when we feel unsafe, or that our voices, identities, and truest selves are being threatened. This workshop will help people gain practical tools for dealing with uncertainty, navigating relationships, and managing whatever holiday plans people might have.

Please feel free to come for one or both of the hours in Bldg 5-134 for all three dates.

Tuesday, November 22: 5PM - 7PM
