As you all know there is a very high risk of future aggression from Russia against Ukraine and Belarus and/or conflict between NATO and Russia etc in East Europe. At the same time, we are in the vortex of Covid-Pandemia. Not only Covid-19 Pandemia but also viruses of polarisations, fragmentations, conflicts and transformations are visible in micro and macro levels. Here we are, IAGP, as a container for all colleagues who are experiencing difficult times in the region of East Europe nowadays and for each of us in Europe on the eve of war. The risk of war may create suffering for everyone. We want to hear and learn from each other! We are better together!

Dear Richard Beck and Regine Scholz will facilitate the group.
There will be translation opportunities from Russian, Ukrainian to English.
Dear Olya Serga will be our translator.

It will be for 100 minutes.

Our guidelines for Discussion Group for everyone are:

1) to find the own voice,

2) to listen to each other,

3) to share a feeling, a thought, a dream.

4) All words will be directly translated from English to Russian and Ukrainian language and from Russian to English or from Ukrainian to Russian and English. (It takes time)

Our primary task is to create a safe and open space for thoughts, feelings, dreams and understanding about the psychic impact of the current situation in the East Europe Region with the focus on Ukraine, Belarus and Russia. We want to discuss the topic; ’Holding the Hope on the Eve of War in Europe’

Our rules here are: we do not record any statement, one speaks after the other with an attitude of free talking so far as it is possible-not more than 3 minutes; without evaluation, without any harm against others: If so, do not hesitate and say it out loud. Join us!

I strongly invite you all to join and stand united with colleagues who are experiencing difficult times in Europe and the effects of this condition on each of us in Europe and all around the World! Zoommeeting will be on Sunday, 27th of February, on Sunday at 05:00 pm CET/Berlin; 06:00 pm Kyiv; 07:00 pm İstanbul Moscow; 11.00 am New York time; for 100 minutes.

Warmly regards,
