Randy and Colleen Russell founded and direct SouLore 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, (soulful 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 parents on how to make healthy life transtions. In 2005 they sold Life Designs to their very capable program director, Vince Barranco. Letting go of Life Designs allowed them to specialize in developing the parent training program for a wider audience.
Randy has a Master's degree from The University of Tennessee in Recreation & Leisure. His post graduate training also includes secondary education, psychology, youth services, indigenious wisdom, outdoor emergency care and experiential education.
One of Randy's main assets for working with families is the training and initiation into adulthood by wise parents, mentors and "Elders".
Randy has been working in transition work since 1974, when he started a mentoring program for college students.
His experience includes recreation therapist, summer camp director, therapeutic wilderness director, high school teacher, licensed minister, and program director for leadership and transition-into-adulthood programs
