About This Event

Born in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana, Lance Allred, the first deaf player in NBA History and Author at Sounds True, has always been a student of Chief Joseph and his teachings. Lance applied and further deepened his understanding of Chief Joseph's "Peaceful Warrior" methods throughout his 10 years of travel playing on every continent around the globe. 

Returning from an Alchemist's Journey, having experienced "many deaths" in the blinding highs and devastating lows within the illusions of the world, Lance Allred, understanding the importance of the directions, always goes North for clarity. 

Lance now invites a select few, only 12 people per event, to join him at Sleeping Child Hot Springs, where Chief Joseph once slept and Lance swam as a boy.

Sleeping Child Hot Springs is located in the Rocky Mountains of Montana, in the Bitterroot Valley, just an hour south of Missoula. 

For centuries the local warring Indian tribes declared the hot springs to be a sacred land and a neutral-zone where all had to lay down their arms. The last Indian lore of the sacred space was that of Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce when he led his tribe out of the reservation and through the Lolo Pass into the Bitterroot Wilderness. In pursuit of Chief Joseph and his people were General Howard and his soldiers. Trying to avoid a confrontation, Chief Joseph split his tribe into smaller groups. One such group traveled through what is now Sleeping Child Creek and facing a possible battle, they left their infants by the hot springs. When they returned, the infants were safe and peacefully sleeping, protected by the natural hot springs. Thus, Sleeping Child Hot Springs was named.

Sleeping Child Hot Springs is a unique holistic setting, perfect for empowerment and healing retreats from the 130 degree water (200 gpm), with 25 rooms, geothermal heating, spa, fresh water, roof top atrium, fireplaces and a sauna, hidden away in miles of uninterrupted wilderness.

With his team of trusted holistic partners and advisors who helped Lance ascend to his place as a recently signed author of Sounds True, Lance will empower you to be a leader of your life, to transcend and reframe your story and narrative. 

From yoga to cranial sacral/massage sessions, personal astrology decoding/interpretations to psychosomatic energy readings, tarot sessions to shamanic meditation, or simply soaking in the healing hot springs all day, you will be encouraged to attend and engage in whatever capacity you wish, with mandatory walkabouts in the surrounding wilderness with only the mountain goats to speak to. 

With only 12 people per event, you will receive true quality time with Lance and his trusted peers. 

Educational science has shown that where you learn your content is just as important as what you learn.

You won't forget what you learn here.

Lance Allred has paid the price to share his message and wisdom from his hard travels around the globe. He will help you and empower you to go within yourself. He doesn't want you to rely on him, but yourself. And that is where he differs from most teachers.

Venue Highlights

Private, secluded setting in the heart of the Rocky Mountain Wilderness. A true "getaway."
