Bear Medicine—Horse Spirit Retreat

Black Tail Ranch
Wolf Creek, Montana

Private 8,000 acre ranch alongside the Helena Forest overlooking the Continental Divide

"A bear loped before me
I keep a fire burning and
tell a story: I was born one winter
in a cave at the root of a tree
from a J. Haines poem

Bear Medicine has been used for thousands of years to provide insight into the human condition awakening wisdom and the power of the unconscious. Bear medicine can teach us to go deep within surrendering to our primal instincts, where we become still within our selves. Bear medicine awakens the inner soul open and opens us to the depth and breadth of life.

"And Spirit grasped a handful of southerly wind,
blew breath over it and created the horse...
Virtue bound in the hair of the forelock,
a gaze from the depths of dream,
given the power of flight without wings"
—From a Bedouin Tale and Koran Blessi

Horse Spirit inspires our dreams, awakens passion, carries us far and fast, and brings us close to our instinctual and authentic nature. Horse enables us to move beyond our limitations and run freely. A Native American legend tells us that the horse is a gift from eagle making the difference between a prosperous life and a struggle simply for survival.
