Rev. Michelle Weisblat-Dane A.K.A. Mama Bear
I am an ordained minister living in Manitou Springs, Colorado. My
late husband and I settled here in 1993. We raised 14 children
… his, mine, step, ours, adopted and fostered. The children
have grown and are on their own and my husband has passed away. I
am now in a new chapter of my life story, that of being a minister
and helping others.
I graduated from UCLA with a degree in Psychology. I worked at the
Gender Identity Center in Denver Colorado in the Late 80's and
early 90's where I won an award from the National Chapter for my
service. I subsequently gave up counseling to open a computer
store chain. In 2000 I sold all the stores, choosing at that time
to stay at home and devote my time to the care of my husband,
children, grandchildren and foster children. Many of my children
were special needs or LGBT. I was able to use my training in
psychology to better enable them grow into wonderful adults.
I was born Jewish and see Judaism as my heritage. Like the Jews, I
believe there is one God, who created the universe, and the laws
that govern it. Pagans believe that Goddesses and spirits are here
to help guide the universe, and I believe that this is true under
the laws set down by God. I also feel that, as taught in Taoism,
there is an energy that runs through all things, and that the
balance of this energy in all things in the universe existence
according to Gods laws. I acknowledge no right or wrong in
religious or spiritual beliefs. These are personal matters for
each individual to decide for themselves. I attend the
St. Andrews Episcopal Church.
For the last 3 years, I have read Tarot cards for the locals
and tourists at a location on Manitou Avenue in front of
the Cheyenne Spring. This gave me a great opportunity to
minister to the poor and homeless, including helping several
individuals recover from drugs and alcohol. This community
gave me the name Mama Bear, and MamaBear Ministries came to be.
I am hoping that through this website I will be able to reach
out and assist more people.
