Where we began and how we came to be.

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.
