Sharing Circle on Ukraine

A sense of support and togetherness often has a significant impact on our ability to overcome difficult times. While some of us have a strong social support network, others may experience more isolation. Therefore we’d like to offer an opportunity for all members of the PCU community to come together for a Sharing Circle.

The Sharing Circle on Ukraine session will provide a supportive environment with a focus on respect for individuals thoughts, stories and experiences. A circle is a powerful symbol, and together, we aim to be a powerful source of support and community. The session will be led by trained facilitator, Filip Rosenkranc from Student Services.

To join please email: [email protected]

The circle will take place in Room 002 of the Polska Campus (Blanická entrance) from 3 till 5pm.

What is a Sharing Circle?

This is a traditional form of non-hierarchical communication that focuses on supportive listening, open communication, self-esteem, self-awareness, and mutual respect. Participants agree to speak one at a time, sharing their personal stories and experiences, rather than opinions, and listening non-judgmentally, while others do the same.

It supports a deep sense of community and fosters recognition of a shared humanity and interconnectedness. It enables individuals to give a voice to their stories, cultivate a compassionate response to anger, defensiveness, and violence, as well as strengthen emotional health and resilience.
