The Symbolism: The Dove in the Oak Tree
The oak tree is one of the most loved trees in the world. It’s a symbol of strength, morale, resistance, and knowledge. Young seedling oak trees have tap roots. Unlike the fibrous roots that grow in shallow soil around the base of a plant, tap roots grow deep into the soil and originate directly beneath the tree’s trunk. This configuration of underground tentacles is the source of health or illness for the tree. The Onsite Foundation’s tools and resources help trauma survivors establish deep, healthy tap roots that will serve as an anchor when the winds of life blow and threaten to sway the tree; it will not be moved. The leaves and branches provide shade and a safe place for rest.
The Aguilegia flower’s common name – “columbine” – comes from the Latin word for “dove”. The taste is sweet and safe in moderation; however, the roots and seeds are highly toxic. In the same way, the residual effects of trauma can become toxic and those affected may appear okay on the outside, but the emotional wounds last long after the event. The Onsite Foundation pays tribute to those affected by the Columbine tragedy 20 years ago.
The Onsite Foundation provides a safe environment for all who attend to find hope, rest, and healing.
We are designed for relationship and community. We were never meant to walk alone through suffering and pain, but to bear the burden for one another. Our Blog is a place where you can find stories from other survivors, letters from our Advisory Councils, and encouragement for your healing journey. You are not alone. You are seen, you are heard, you are deeply loved, you are valued and you belong. We are for you, and we are for your healing.
We must learn, as individuals and as a culture, to face our trauma and resolve our emotional pain. By doing so, we will have the potential to strengthen the fabric of our families, our communities and our world.
