iAwake’s Funnel to Help, Heal, and Support the Ukrainian People
Dear iAwake Friends,
This letter is to inform you about an urgent need and the steps we are taking at iAwake to help all we can. I was at a meeting yesterday with the Emerge network that chess Grandmaster and philosopher Jonathan Rowson has put together to witness the events in Ukraine, and there were a number of Ukrainians speaking to us live in a Zoom conversation. Some of these people were actually in Ukraine and others were in the bordering countries working with the tremendous flow of refugees.
One of the things that stood out from what the Ukrainians on the scene were saying is that sending money directly to the people who are doing the work is much more effective at this stage than sending money to an established NGO or other aid organization, as there is a lot of paperwork and bureaucratic red tape that greatly delays the money from reaching the people who need it the most.
I personally have been sending money to psychologist Kateryna Yasco and her husband, Vytas Bučiūnas, both leaders in the Ukrainian Integral community. I met Kateryna years ago at an Integral conference in Hungary where she asked me if she could use iAwake tracks to help the clients she was working with, who were suffering from PTSD from an earlier Russian invasion. To which I replied, “Of course.”
Upon hearing of the current Russian invasion, Dr. Roger Walsh reached out to them to see if they could join us on our Deep Transformation podcast in order to share with us and the world what’s going on and the consequences of the Russian invasion of their country. Please listen to the podcast, as it was very powerful, and is still very current.
