Our inner fire of endurance is demanded in new ways right now. Raven’s Wing is here to help hold space for our physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing during these most uncertain times. During these Covid times, and all the unrest and revealing happening in our society can challenge us in unexpected ways. Our most powerful work begins inside ourselves, and most certainly within the spaces of great vulnerability. Through the practices of Yoga and Meditation we can begin to develop and strengthen tools to grow increasingly aware of our inner filters we react and respond through, while anchoring our reflections in lovingkindness. Revealing how we relate to ourselves and our inner needs, and how we perceive others guide our thoughts, words and actions.
In essence, Yoga is discovering what was previously unknown to become known.
Our Community of Teachers at Raven’s Wing stand for Social Justice and unequivocally support equal rights, justice and peace for all People, our Black and Latinx Community, our Indigenous and Native Community, and our LGBTQ Community. We are stronger together and will not stand for racism of any kind. We stand up to the dangerous oppression White Supremacy has created over generations and work fiercely to allow the Divine to rise in all of us. We recognize that all of us can help shape a better future by purifying our own conditioned beliefs of dangerous division and help support efforts for a kinder tomorrow.
We are here for ALL WHO WISH POSITIVE CHANGE. All bodies, All abilities, All people, All one. Let’s love one another.
This painting is by Andy Everson an artist from the K’ómoks First Nation in Comox, B.C.. This is our most recent artwork in Raven’s Wing and feel it more than fitting for this immense time we are living through. The painting is titled “Belonging”.
“In “Belonging” I chose the rainbow to represent the diversity of people in the Comox Valley. The seven colours of the visible spectrum weave in and out, touching one another at numerous points. This illustrates the journey towards belonging that we, as a community, must face. Along the path are three watchmen representing the Three Pillars of Action that we can use to combat discrimination: Awareness, Prevention and Response. Through concerted efforts to foster understanding and acceptance, we will reach a community of belonging.”
