Randy and Colleen Russell direct SouLore (Soul Lore) from their home near Sandpoint , Idaho. Since 1994 they have worked together creating opportunities for individuals to live authentically from a place of meaning and purpose, (souful living).
From 1998 till 2005 they developed and directed a transitional leadership school called Life Designs (www.lifedesignsranch.com). Young people from the USA and beyond came for a five month adventure in self-discovery, life preparation and celebration into adulthood. The program trained both young person and parent how to make healthy life transitions. They have passed Life Designs over to the trusted leadership of Vince Baranco in order to design and facilitate healthy transitions to a wider audience.
