Ukraine SUPPORT Project

Manifestation of a Global Support Project

Solidarity in Times of War - Ukraine

A rapid cumulative display of crises is changing all of our lives. The Climate Crisis, coupled with Corona, now compounded by the War in Ukraine, is re-awakening hidden trauma layers and leading to increased stress, anxiety and polarisation. We aim to prevent a downward spiral of rising collective fear. If we can anchor ourselves and help to ground others, we become more able to stay present and respond appropriately to each situation.

Our international teams of facilitators, therapists, coaches and consultants donate their time to offer Support Calls with the goal of resourcing individuals and cultivating social stability. These calls serve as an intervention during the unfolding of events to minimise the increase of collective trauma. Together, we are building a global healing impulse which directs its efforts to wherever the need is strong.

In 2020, through our Covid Aid Project, we directed our volunteer effort to offer 147 calls in English, German, and Spanish which served 2515 Participants. Now, in 2022, we direct our capacity to support Ukrainians and those supporting Ukrainian refugees.

The Ukraine Support Project is run through donations and volunteer efforts. If you are able to support, please donate here.

Embodiment is the foundation for healing. Without embodiment, we have no instrument to receive the world and to ground the energy that has lifted out in anxiety, fear and trauma. Our body is the instrument that allows the energy to return and become fertile soil for the future. – Kosha Joubert

Global Social Witnessing

Tending to the Ancestral and Cultural Wounds of War (English/ Ukrainian)

Facilitator : Patrick Dougherty, Rae Riedel, Simon Courtney

The war in Ukraine is stirring many deep unhealed wounds of war, both ancestral and cultural, for people outside of Ukraine. Old trauma can leave us with feelings of stress, a separateness from others, and can make it hard to stay present to the world around us and also what is happening in Ukraine.

Daria Yemets, Project Assistant, Ukraine
I feel fortunate to be able to spread and communicate ideas of collective healing within my country, as well as to open healing spaces for Ukrainians.
Maya Plusheva, Psychotherapist, Ukraine
I was amazed at how easily and accessible the facilitator gave complex and difficult meanings during the course and how essential it was to be a part of such a coherent group atmosphere during these challenging months.

To feel the problems of our world is to know its suffering, but this requires compassionate “response-ability.” If we fail to address the world’s collective trauma with clarity and compassion, we imperil the survival of our children and our children’s children – and countless other species. – Thomas Hübl

Ukraine SUpport Project

On February 24th 2022, Ukrainians woke up to the sound of bombs and missiles, and the war ist still ongoing today. Safe spaces, where we can collectively begin to witness our experience together, are needed. So far, we are engaging in four subprojects to bring support to Ukrainians.

Mykyta Mikhalko, Private Psychologist, Ukraine
It was an amazing experience to become a part of a big international community in times of war and uncertainty. The knowledge I got from the course was a full integration of my previous psychotherapeutic background. Thank you all hosts and funders for the possibility to participate.
