April/May 2019: Courage

Dear friends,


Welcome to the April/May 2019 issue of Parvati Magazine.


This is a special commemorative edition dedicated to Darcy Belanger, Director of Strategic Initiatives at Parvati.org, Director of Professional Development at PCL, husband, son, and friend to many. Darcy died aboard Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 on March 10, 2019 on his way to champion the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary (MAPS) at the United Nations Environment Assembly.


For all of our core team at Parvati.org, Darcy was not only a colleague, but a dear friend. In my role as Parvati.org’s founder and CEO, he was my right-hand man, executing directions with complete trust and tremendous effectiveness. More than that, he was the brother I never had.


I vividly remember the first time I saw Darcy. Ten years ago, a mutual friend introduced him to me and my husband Rishi Deva. When he arrived at our Toronto home, I was struck by the noticeable light in his kind eyes. I instantly felt I knew him. But I had no idea what a major role he would play in my life and work.


Generous without hesitation in ways I never expected, Darcy had my back from the outset. Even before he fully understood why I needed to go to the North Pole, he supported my trip there to raise awareness of the melting Arctic sea ice. Then he courageously stepped up as a founding member of the international charity Parvati.org, and became instrumental in our organization. We called him our quarterback for the skillful and energetic way he moved MAPS forward.

Darcy Belanger, 1972-2019

Darcy and I spoke on a regular basis. Many of our conversations were tactical, addressing how to ensure the swift realization of MAPS. Many were spiritual, on the importance of cultivating our inner peace sanctuary. Others were simply the talks of two longtime friends. The following exchange is a synthesis of multiple conversations between us about courage. Read More
Thank you for reading this special edition of Parvati Magazine. In the dark soil of a farmer’s field, 40 miles southeast of Addis Ababa, a brochure for MAPS lay prominent in the rubble of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302. It had been in Darcy’s carry-on bag. Despite the crash that ended... Read More
