  • There are obvious limitations to hands-on healing with a grizzly bear, especially one like Teton with an aggressive streak. Over two years, Teton Totem had slowly become paralyzed in his hind end, though he was still in his prime. He would drag himself across his enclosure with his front paws. After we had tried all that Western medicine could offer, I turned to Penelope Smith, well known for her work in interspecies telepathic communication. She had previously met and loved Teton. Penelope agreed to do what she could and contacted Teton telepathically from her home in Arizona. She received an image of a slipped disk in Teton’s lower back. She asked him how it happened, and he flashed her a picture of a time when he was standing a few years ago and felt something slip in his lumbar. Penelope worked with Teton daily to facilitate his healing. Whatever the explanation, the facts are that after the first day, Teton dragged himself to his pool and placed his right hind leg in the water as he tried to swing it to and fro. Each day we watched him and observed microscopic improvement. In time, he was able to walk again. That winter he entered his den walking normally, and when he came out the next spring, he was still walking normally.
