Beyond the Diag - Off Campus Housing

Wolverine Wellness will be offering Listening Circles for students to process the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe V. Wade. With roots in indigenous cultures around the world, listening circles provide people an opportunity to speak and listen to each other in an atmosphere of safety, respect, and equality.

 Circle Keepers will initiate the circle and hold or “keep” it by asking prompts and attending to group energy.  Listening circles emphasize storytelling for cultivating empathy. Listening circles also foster a space where people may gain a shared sense of understanding and interconnectedness. 

During a listening circle, people can expect to have facilitator(s) who ask and respond to the same set of questions. Listening circles are not conversations or debates – they are meant to give a platform to people to share their own experiences, without interruption, response or challenge.

 The Listening Circles will be co-hosted by trained staff from Wolverine Wellness, Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center (SAPAC), and CEW+. We will be offering multiple circles throughout September (both virtual and in-person). Registration is required.
