Blacktail Ranch (Wolf Creek, Montana)

Gathering the Soul: In the Wilderness


August 11-17, 2019


The Gathering the Soul Retreat at the beautiful Blacktail Ranch offers the healing power of horses, mountains and forests, rivers, sunshine and blue sky, and the companionship of kindred spirits. In this spectacular setting, a small group of women will explore inner and outer wilderness through meditation, dreamwork, journaling and shamanic journeying, ceremony, and horse as mirror. 

     In addition to three other horseback rides on the 8,000 acre ranch, on the last afternoon participants will ride to an ancient, sacred Native American cave to experience the transformative power of ceremony and song and a shamanic journey for each person to find her sacred gift.

Why you should come:
    • Come because you want to experience “The Last Best Place” . . .
    • Come because you love horses . . .
    • Come because your soul is calling you to go deeper . . .
    • Come because dreams are knocking on the door of your consciousness, and you’re ready to pay attention . . .
