“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
A shift is here, it is clear the winds of change are present, and we can resits or we can move forward together.
Ekah, in Sanskrit means ONE. Ekah celebrates union, and has always stood for unity through diversity and thus strives to bolster authenticity. Racism has never been something we have talked about openly at Ekah. It is a word that we assumed was understood as unacceptable. But let’s be honest here, racism, is so deeply rooted in the fabrics of our culture, that a further awakening, and call to action present necessary today, and moving forward.
We have stepped back, we are here, we continue to breathe together. Now it is time for our small group of thoughtful people to stand in solidarity for change. We affirm Black Lives Matter, we affirm Color of Change.
To further propel change in our community and beyond, we are taking actions to bring visibility to our change, and are taking measures to provide room for donation classes that support social equality reform.
We also pay tribute to those lives lost in this ongoing war of racism, repression, and marginalization. We pay homage to George Floyd family. And it is our hope that his precious life will not be lost in vain. He and so many others before him have faced murder because of their color. We at Ekah Yoga affirm Black Lives Matter—and support change through actively rethinking race, opening up to possibility, saying yes to change, gaining truth through knowledge, being present in this moment, continuing to persist, and rejecting violence.
We will be working towards the inclusion of fundamental & foundational pillars into the framework of our existence.
If you are interested in helping us actively support change you can do the following:
1. Stop by our rainbow colored front door, take your photo by it, and share your perspective on one or more of the colors of change on your social media platform, or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
