Red Lodge Longhouse


You may have heard about the Arizona Red Lodge Longhouse, but wondered what is that?!?

Just by hearing the name, you certainly would not know what this Longhouse is all about.  One of the challenges with describing this yearlong program is that in modern day syntax, there is indeed NOTHING like it.  An elevator, quick hit description doesn’t do this program justice either.

Historically, a longhouse was held during the winter months when everything slowed down and the entire community would come together to share, study and expand through sacred knowledge.  In today’s world, we don’t have the winter months to shut down our life and luxuriate in this approach to learning and seeking.

Our Red Lodge Longhouse seeks to keep the traditional ways of gathering  like-minded folks, but tailors the timing of these gatherings to today’s pace.  That being said, we gather 7 times over the course of a year, 6 weekends at our center and 1 week of ceremony out in nature.

Why would I want to invest this kind of time to this program?  What do we do over this course of a year?  At this time of fast paced life, seemingly unlimited technology, and so many options of things to do, we offer a time-tested approach to reconnecting to all of life, gaining tools to help us sort out our past issues, and determine our way to the life we choose now to have.

Join others that desire to create their life with a balanced approach, focusing on spiritual connection, personal growth and abundance.  You will gain tools for change, new friends, and an understanding of natural worlds.

As it seems easier to disconnect, this longhouse is all about connection.

Connect to your potential.  Join us!

About the Red Lodge Longhouse Program
The Red Lodge Longhouse program is a year-long commitment to personal excellence and the impeccability of a Warrior. This program is for students who wish to develop ways of knowing how to connect with Spirit and how to live in harmony with fellow humans and nature. Through alchemy, sacred laws, magick and tools, the student gains freedom and enlightenment within their own path with heart.

The Intent and Focus of this First Year
First Year Red Lodge consists of six weekends and a ceremonial week-long in addition to personal study and opportunities for hands-on experiences and ceremonies. The first year program explores in depth the circular movement of the Wheels and Keys of knowledge of the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path.

At the end of this year, the student will be able to use these Wheels in their life, understand their connection to nature and how to make personal changes for the better. This program helps students to understand their movements through the Wheel of Life, to learn about their energy body, to stalk themselves and win the battle
of being “asleep” in life.

Red Lodge Year One is designed to allow the seeker or student to discover their path with heart and explore the Worlds of Grandmother Earth. It is an introduction to the “Great Work”, the inner journey to heal oneself and find the warrior within.

Red Lodge: Introduction to The Path of The Sacred Warrior

At this time in history, there have never been more options for spiritual exploration.  Are you seeking a path to follow for sacred living?


Red Lodge: Introduction to The Path of The Sacred Warrior

Red Lodge is a structured, year-by-year program to take you through time-honored, alchemical ways of healing the self, developing your inner warrior and connecting with Spirit to live as a sacred human being in balance with life, nature and the sacred laws of the universe.

At this time in history, there have never been more options for spiritual exploration.  Many men and women are seeking their path to follow.  The Red Lodge Longhouse program is backed by a lineage of elders that have centuries of teachings and ceremonial experiences as a foundation for self-growth.  This offers all students the solidity needed to navigate the changing world we live in.

The Red Lodge Longhouse program offers teachings, tools, ceremonies and warrior techniques in six weekend sessions over the course of the year as well as one week out in nature for extended ceremonial experiences.  This program is open to all who are seeking their inner light and truth.  Each year’s group of students share in the interpersonal work to heal themselves and create a community of like-minded humans that desire to become sacred humans.

The path of the sacred warrior is indeed a great journey, and you must do the walking and have the willingness change and make the leap into the next level of human evolution. But for those who are willing to be an inquisitive, free-thinking individual who takes responsibility for your life, a life filled with dharmic opportunities is calling to your spirit.

Are you ready to make the leap?

Join us for our first 2014 session January 17 – 19, 2014 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Why does the Red Lodge program feature an entire week of ceremony?  Ceremonies play a critical part in our integration process.  They give us more access to our spiritual aspect, and help us to bring what we know in our spiritual aspect into our daily lives, as well as facilitating us bringing our learnings from our daily lives into our spirit.  Ceremonies facilitate the process of taking the Red Lodge teachings from information on paper into knowledge that we own and can use in our work, play, relationships.

Ceremonies in nature also give us the opportunity to align with the natural world, to rebalance ourselves.

Ceremonial week is an integral part of the Red Lodge Longhouse program in all of its locations.  For more information about each, see:
