Boundaries Boot Camp has gone LIVE and in-person in a private workshop training at the ranch!
This boundaries intensive is designed for exploring and experiencing the practical and shamanic application of energetic and verbal boundaries and protection practice.
Protection from what?
From that which compromises your relationships, steals your faith and serenity, and disrupts your connection to the divine source of love as you understand it.
Boundaries are created and lived into so we can cope with challenges that send us running for the hills or putting up our dukes in defense.
We work with boundaries to stay grounded and empowered even when our foundations are shaking.
Scheduled Activities Include Trainings in:
- Relationship Skills/Fair Fighting for Conflicts
- The Language of Empowerment: Standing Up for Yourself
- Shamanic Healing
- Shamanic Journey

Here are a few more details about what to expect and how to prepare for the workshop:
A brief packing list and directions for traveling here will be sent to you upon registration.
Sitting mat or small ground cloth for sitting on the earth if you like. We have plenty of wooden and camp chairs and will take frequent breaks for movement and hands-on work.
Rattle This can be as simple as a tin can of dried beans or as fine as a rawhide rattle you’ve made and adorned yourself. I use a very simple hand rattle made of rawhide like these for what we’ll be doing together. You can make your own from a kit–just make sure the stitches are nice and close so you don’t lose your rattling innards when it dries and contracts a little.
Pen: We provide journals for this event.
Loose, comfortable clothes Summer is hot in Central Oregon, but we occasionally have a thunderstorm! A lightweight raincoat is nice to have, especially the kind which fold down quite small.
Bathroom situation: For this event, we have access to one flush toilet in the house, accessible through the laundry room right by our campsite. There is also a sink in this bathroom, but not a shower. Showers, if you will need one, are a ten minute walk down the country road to our barn area. There are two hot water shower stalls and an incinerating toilet there, as well.
Lodging: You will be lovingly nested into a double-occupancy range tipi (also known as a cowboy tipi) with a sleeping cot and pad. If you prefer to sleep on the earth, we will remove your cot when you arrive. Please bring a sleeping bag and a pillow with you.
The majority of the food we will enjoy at SouLodge Ranch is organic and local wherever possible. Meat and vegetarian options are available. Please specify using the form which is sent to you.
Meals will be prepared by Sky Sharp and catered by The Root Cellar. Internet/Phone/Cameras
Cell service is available here as well as a place to charge. There will be designated times where it will be best if they’re stowed so we can focus on our work at hand.
Please leave laptops at home and ask family members to contact you only in an emergency.Travel

Redmond is located approximately 3.5 hours from Portland International Airport and twenty minutes from Redmond Municipal Airport in Central Oregon. If you fly into PDX, you will drive past beautiful Mt. Hood and lose cell service for about an hour in Hood National Forest.Location
REDMOND, Oregon Weather
Weather in Central Oregon is mostly sunny and warm (80-90 degree highs) during the days and cool at night (40 degree lows). We are located in the high juniper desert, so there can be thunderstorms and micro-storms during Summer. It’s best to be prepared for anything, save for snow!
Check in with the forecast so you can be best prepared for your needs! SouLodge Ranch is a holistically managed working cattle ranch. We have a herd of 24 mother cows, 20 yearlings, 3 bulls, and as of today 16 calves with the likelihood of 6 more by the time you arrive. We also have 5 horses, 4 working dogs and a farm cat. Wildlife comes around often and the high-desert, lava terrain is rugged in spots.
