Heal the Trauma of 2020

Saturday, October 10, 2020 – 10:30 AM

Let’s Begin to Heal the Trauma of 2020: You are invited to a Zoom meeting with the UU Trauma Response Ministry on Saturday, Oct 10, 2020 at 10:30 am Pacific

Please join members of the UU Trauma Ministry Team and other members and friends of the Southern Oregon UU Partnership (including UU Fellowship of Klamath County, UUs of Grants Pass and Rogue Valley UU Fellowship) on Saturday, October 10 @ 10:30 am via ZOOM for an opportunity to explore the ways in which the recent wildfires have been and are affecting each of us and how we can support each other and those around us during this important time.

Many of us have experienced trauma upon trauma this year, with COVID-19 and the intensity of our national political divides exacerbating the pain of watching wildfire sweep through our region. Whether or not you feel you personally experienced trauma this year, your supportive presence can help our community begin to heal. Board Co-Chair Constance and Intern Minister Alison have been spearheading this project for the SOUUP community, because both of us have experienced finding healing we didn’t even know we needed at this type of event. We hope you’ll consider joining in.

You must register in advance for this meeting!

The UU Trauma Response Ministry was established in 2002 and has for the past 18 years worked with congregations across the country who have faced a variety of difficult and tragic circumstances including wildfires in southern California, Hurricanes Charlie, Katrina and Maria; the shootings at Tennessee Valley UU Church as well as many other incidents of natural and human made disaster and trauma. Those who have benefited in the past from the presence of UUTRM report that their work helped greatly, especially through the initial stages of their experiences. Even those participants who didn’t personally feel as though they needed to talk found that their presence was helpful for others who did. Please join us for this important conversation.

We will be showing “Educating Women and Girls” a TED talk by Katharine Wilkenson, powerful and moving short talk Katharine gave on the impact of educating women and girls on the battle against global warming. That will be followed by another short film by David Katz on “The surprising solution to ocean plastics and how we can address poverty at the same time”. We’ll also have a time after the films for people to share their feeling and thoughts plus look at how we might get involved in the solutions.
