Gratitude, according to Bear, is a wide-open welcoming of the gifts. Gratitude is an interactive exchange, receiving as well as giving. Bear is a guide for living centered in gratitude, honoring and acknowledging the gifts of life even in the midst of challenges. Genuine gratitude, like genuine love, is unconditional.

You can untangle from patterns that distort and block gratitude. Using empty words to express thanks. Taking something that hasn’t been offered. Making judgments of better than or less.

Bear is calling you to open wide your embrace to notice and appreciate the gifts being shared in the everyday moments of everyday life. Bear Medicine lives with gratitude with every breath and every step.
