Big Sky Country
The Blacktail Ranch
July 7 - 14, 2012
with Gayle Lawrence - Journeys of Discovery
and "Soul Specialist"- author Janet Conner
|Montana is still thought of as nature at it's wildest and most awe inspiring, snow capped mountains in the distance, rolling meadows
filled with wild flowers, blue sky so big you get lost in it. Stand in sacred stillness and feel the sun on your face and listen to the
whispers of the wind. Watch a herd of beautiful horses grazing peacefully. Breath deeply, the air so fresh and pure it fills your senses.
This is Montana - Big Sky Country and The Blacktail Ranch.
On The Blacktail, the land speaks to you.....the river will tell you her stories, the huge Cottonwood trees beckon you to read, write,
meditate or just rest. The horses wait to teach you about courage, power and finding your balance,
the sweat lodge offers purification and cleansing for your Soul, the Bear Cave takes you back into the womb of Mother Earth.
At night the campfire crackles as stories are shared, usually with laughter, sometimes with tears.
The beat of the drum calls you into a sacred circle where we pass the talking stick and tell our tales as "Writing Down Your Soul"
author, Janet Conner facilitates this "Soul Quest" journey. You come as a seeker, filled with a longing you really can't define, yet
someplace deep inside your heart, you know you will find your answers here.
You have come to The Blacktail on a "Soul Quest"
"The soul loves to move, to express, to be free and hates domination and desertion.....
Listen to the soul. Love it. Give it back its dance
Hugh Milne, The Heart of Listening
The Blacktail provides the sacred space to dig deep into yourself and explore those dark mysterious places, to move beyond fear
and claim your power, to embrace your own innate wisdom and to find the answers that you seek.
Here you will find things you didn't know existed....perhaps here...... You will find yourself.
The Spirit Elders of this Native land will walk beside you on your journey, they will help guide your way back home.
