This post came across FB feed today from Contemplative Monk ❤️

My Grandma loved the crow outside her window at Cedar Bay … As we chatted on Skype or by phone, she would tell me about the crow’s comings and goings in the courtyard. She looked forward to his visits. She once said, “everybody else here isn’t particularly fond of that crow, but I like him.” 🥰

Thank you, Dear Crow, wherever you may be, for offering companionship, joy and a sense of normal to my grandma during a very abnormal time. I look forward to our encounters, honoring & remembering my Grandma. 🙏🏼

I’d love to hear your encounters with the Crow — physically or with Crow Wisdom. Please share your insights in the comments — thank you for helping me remember my Grandmother ❤️.

I practice & share Hatha Yoga for a simple reason -- it works. Hatha Yoga in the Himalayan Tradition is a holistic system of philosophy & practices passed down through an unbroken 5,000 year lineage of Himalayan sages. What Hatha Yoga is not: trendy, bendy or one-&-done. What Hatha Yoga is: a systematic approach to uncovering the real, authentic YOU in body, mind & spirit. Hatha Yoga cultivates well-being, stability, clarity & ease in modern life through traditional, time-tested practices. I also recognize both our shared humanity & our differing privileges & barriers -- I am a cis-gendered white female with a graduate degree, who has dealt with family trauma & an eating disorder. My goals in my own practice include to cultivate awareness of my own privileges & social conditioning, unlearn & re-learn in order to be mindful & take compassionate action toward a more beautiful, just & peaceful world for ALL humans, creatures & our Earth. I'm making mistakes daily, & hopeful that I'm falling forward toward these goals & vision. I hope we can walk our paths & support each other along the way.
