Connecting hearts, minds & hands

Raven Institute

The Raven Institute hosts a gathering space to connect hearts, minds, and hands.

Rooted in Indigenous ways of knowing and being, contributing to the development of humans, organizational systems, and community.

The Raven Institute is a learning, reconciliation, resilience, healing, gathering place and space that weaves in traditional Indigenous practices and worldview.

They are bringing together the individual and collective leadership needed to shape a better world; the kind of leadership that draws upon wise Indigenous practices and creative modern- day approaches that we need to realize the potential of our times.

Raven Institute

The meaning of the name Raven Institute comes from "Raven - The Spirit of Curiosity, Complexity, Creativity, Courage and Change" and "Institute - meaning Build, Create, Raise, or Educate." The core values of The Raven Institute are: Love, Courage, Creativity and Being Connected.

Their Learning Village, Building Bridges, and Wholeness/Wellness/Healing pillars are for everyone. Their Co-creating Community and Capacity pillar is for Indigenous people. This space is for the work of Indigenous people, in their way, in their land.

The wisdom is in nature, in the land, and in community. The Raven Institute acknowledges that - gathering and co-creating space for that wisdom to be remembered, revered, embraced, and valued. Imagine that wisdom free and emerging - transforming into action.

In each traditional territory - Raven honours the way of moving in community while contributing to uniting people, strengthening community, and building capacity to equip us for modern times.
