Kootenay Co-op announces 2020 scholarship recipients SUBMITTED BY KOOTENAY CO-OP port of its vision of thriving

The Kootenay Co-op values community dialogue and empowerment through education about food, health, the environment and social justice. Each year, the co-op offers one $1,000 scholarship in sup-

communities with resilient food systems, where all people have access to affordable food that is healthy for our bodies, our communities and the Earth. This year, however, the

co-op recognized how many have struggled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In an attempt to ease that economic stress, they decided to offer two $1,000 Member Scholarships in 2020. Anna Yule (food services

production supervisor at the Kootenay Co-op) and Indigo Bowick (LVR grad) were chosen from more than 20 applicants and will each receive a $1,000 scholarship this year. The second runner-up, Gretchen Lewandowski will

also receive a $100 Kootenay Co-op gift card as gratitude for the good work she will do in her future. Yule is working toward a Red Seal culinary certification at Selkirk College. Yule plans to use this scholarship and her

education as a cook to showcase locally inspired menus which highlight seasonality and sustainability. “I hope to take the enthusiasm for environmental and sustainable agriculture pracContinued on Page A23

Stilling the Mind Living in today’s world brings its own unique challenges and uncertainties—the pandemic, climate change, political situations, racial and cultural divides—to name a few. The future is unknown for us as individuals, for our families, communities, the world, the Earth. How will this world evolve into a more harmonious, peaceful reality? Is it even possible? Questions, fear, insecurity arise – disturbing peace of mind, overall health and well-being. When the focus shifts to the inner world, we can become aware of a bigger perspective and realize there is a choice—of how

to respond rather than react and take steps based in wisdom rather than ignorance. Wise action and speech affect not only our own peace of mind, they also have an effect on those we come in contact with, rippling out into the world. During these past months of physical distancing, self-isolation and changes in economic security, many people are coming back to what’s important. Within the limitations of this time, there is something to discover in our lives – connected to what brings meaning and purpose. Although I’ve lived at an Ashram for

many years, I find the current limitations are encouraging me to question and reflect even more deeply—about my habits, ways of being in the world and what’s really important. Yoga practices such as breath, prayer, mantra, visualization and asanas take me to an inner place of quiet where I rest and am renewed. I become more open to inner guidance. The ancient Yoga Sutras of Patanjali are as relevant now as they were thousands of years ago. These teachings tell us that whatever is happening right now in our lives is the exact place to learn, develop and evolve. It is the

place to strengthen our capacity to still the thought waves of the mind and rest in our true nature. Now, more than ever, it is important to take time for relaxation, reflection and renewal—in body, mind and spirit. Even a few moments standing still in Tadasana, the Mountain pose will have an effect—the mind settles, bringing perspective to both inner and outer worlds. Namaste,
