Looking into the bear’s eyes, they seem to say, “Uh Oh, what do I do now? Do I run? What is that man going to do?” He seems not to be threatened, but he seems a little stunned and to be evaluating the situation.

If you are ever confronted with any bear they say to make noise and become as big as you can.

Mountain Memories from my journal – Paul Murray – A Very Bear-ry Silly Short Story

One morning I was looking out the kitchen window and saw all the bear-ries on the ground. I said “What kind of varmet would do such a thing?” KatiJane my wife knew what happened, so I guess she was the bear-er of the bear-y bad news. I couldn’t bear what she had to say. So, right out to the barn I went looking for some rope. I couldn’t find any, so I used some bear wire and with my bear hands. I got the bear wire and tied up that weight bear-ing black Bear-y bush.

Then all of a sudden, our little 3 year old comes a runnin’ out of the back door, bear-foot and bear bottomed. She’s so fast we could bear-ly catch her. Then this old truck pulled into our driveway with a bear cage on the back, and a man and lady got out of the vehicle and said, “Would you happen to be Paul Murray the artist?”

Craft Your Own Medicine Bag!

The mountains, I become a part of it…

The herbs, the fir tree, I become a part of it.

The morning mists, the clouds, the gathering waters, I become a part of it.

The wilderness, the dew drops, the pollen…I become a part of it.

– Navajo Chant

Traditional Native American medicine bags are small bags or bundles that have been filled with items of significance to the owner and are carried for spiritual protection.

The contents of a medicine bag can vary. They can contain seeds, herbs or special stones or other small items of spiritual value that are meaningful to the owner. These precious medicine bundles can possess powers for protection, good luck or healing.

Learn how to craft your own medicine bag at our Art and Adventure Retreat in Tobermory, ON. This activity is lead by a local indigenous woman who will offer insights into the tradition.

Medicine Bag crafting is just one of many healing experiences that await you at our Art & Adventure Retreat. Explore the night sky with astronomers and local teachers or enjoy music and s’mores by the fireside. There’s so much to experience, so don’t miss out on the adventure!
