What's with the Bear on Facebook?

Recently,  The Fury project has been using this bear stencil as a temporary logo for all its online presence.  We're at present in talks with a designer for the project but I have to credit the tattoo artist who made this tattoo stencil. Her name is KarianaSan. Click here for a link to her profile.

But why a bear?
It is totem of  great strength, security and determination. It has feminine qualities of introspection and intuition. But Bears actually represent teaching and humility. Often misunderstood and aggressive and cantankerous, they are powerful symbols of protection and love to children with clear protective boundaries - the most dangerous animal in a forest is a mother bear with cubs.
As a totem for the anger project we hope to absorb the qualities of the bear to hold the anger emotion for , be introspective about its power and manifest it constructively and productively.  

Go to The Fury Project's Facebook and Twitter read great articles, quotes, videos and poetry on the subject of anger, posted by the team and Facebook followers.

Seeding Red

"Recognising the anger trying not to see red and disappear
or end up with time lost
to the Bermuda triangle of troubled,
strangulated till I black out:
the  hurricane walks." Anger is a symptom for something being very wrong. It is your body telling you a perceived injustice has been done. It is a red flag to wake up, be aware, stay alert. That alerting might be to watch your back, be good to yourself, protect yourself, do not leave yourself vulnerable: "there are trip wires everywhere".

Listening to the global experiences of women's anger helps others better understand perceptions of anger in general. When gender, race and cultural  stereotypes are considered, anger and conflict take on a different dynamic.
