Acupuncture and Herb Clinic
Welcome to Ráven Sárá's Acupuncture and Herb Clinic!
We are temporarily using our homepage to advocate for world support for the animals suffering in the Australian bushfires. Many species are undergoing catastrophic decimation, and it is likely several on the endangered list are now extinct. The clinic is currently donating 100-200% of the purchase price of cloth bags and other items we sell here to support Australian wildlife. Please consider making a purchase or donation when you visit our clinic! Our proceeds go to the World Wildlife Fund's rescue and rehabilitation efforts for these precious beings. You can also support these good people directly by visiting their website.
Imagine the terrifying fires which are sweeping across Australia. Animals running for their lives. Unable to see, to breathe, to know how to escape. Some, no doubt, burrowed beneath the ground, if they had time. But did they escape? Babies separated from their parents, pain, unbelievable pain, fear and suffering. Choking smoke, severe injuries, chaos, terror.
The devastating fires in Australia are estimated to have cost over one billion innocent animal lives. Massive destruction of habitat also leaves surviving animals homeless. Was this caused by the ambition of the coal industry to use these lands to push a railroad across the country? Certainly, that industry convinced the government not to impose emissions reductions in order to protect their profits. Moreover, the government failed to invest in a professional fire department, in spite of Australia’s being the driest continent on our planet. Recently, temperatures of 107.5°F have been measured there.
Rumors circulate about the fires being started by people. What people? Agents of the coal industry? Careless individuals? No matter how you slice it, this horrific tragedy was human caused. For thousands of years, native Aboriginal people knew how to live on this land without raping her. Then they were murdered, in the thousands, by European settlers and future cattle barons.
Fortunately, there are also a great many people on our planet who do care. Their hearts are saddened to see burned, frightened, and dehydrated baby koalas and other animals trying desperately to find water. The World Wildlife Fund, Australia, has a program of rescue and restoration of the land. Our clinic is sending them money directly. Purchases from our “Support The Earth” sale table are doubled or more to support this effort. But you can send WWF Australia funds directly on the internet. Because of the exchange rate, for every $100 you donate, only about $68 will be deducted from your account or charged to your credit card.
The Yogis say we live in the time of the Kaliyuga: the time of the great evil. But they also say that goodness shines brightly at this time in people who walk away from the path of evil. What happened and is happening in Australia, the Amazon, and California could easily happen to us here in Oregon. We have to decide what is really important in life.
Please help our animal friends in Australia and think about how you can live a more sustainable life for all living beings.

N. C., Grants Pass
We never know what the circumstances of our initiations will be.
When the Divine chooses to wrap her chrysalis of darkness around us,
asking us to endure and wait and question and doubt.
Feeling suspended in space and time,
and left behind
while the rhythm of the world carries on unaware
that we have paused for a purpose we cannot fathom.
In that stillness we wonder why and how did I get here??
It is through exploring the answers we give ourselves that we come to see that it just is and the only way
to the other side is to follow what our own heart instructs us to do,
away from the confinements of last week, last year, or a second ago
we are at least in charge of how we respond,
following the maze out to freedom,
guided by our true nature,
where we are strong and creative,
where we intuitively know exactly what we need.
The chrysalis of confinement is actually one of protection and the darkness doesn’t happen to us, it happens for us!
While we are inside, we are held on the outside by an abundance of loving people with smiling faces
who lend their strength and spirits to us,
seeing our beauty not in spite of,
but because of
our broken bits
and stretch marks.
We will all eventually emerge from our cocoon of transformation,
from pain to compassion, grace and a new sense of lightness of flight,
and we will become an even deeper instrument of blessing to the next in line.
