10. Practice the Boy Scout motto, “Be prepared.” Always be in the state of readiness in mind and body to do your duty.
11. Remember that you are in a small community while at the ranch. Only 146 families call Tabiona home. They’ll be watching. Let’s make Young Living proud.
12. We have 100 students joining the Men’s Retreat. With 17 restrooms, plus portable restrooms outside, you’ll still be sharing space. Please be courteous to your fellow participants.

19. Please be flexible and adaptable. Remember that we may need to change the schedule or move speakers around based on the present conditions in the class.

21. We are all here to learn, including the teachers. Relax and enjoy being a part of this learning process.
22. Be courteous to other attendees when asking questions or engaging in emotional issues. Discussing their problem may actually help you to solve yours.
23. When engaged in discussing emotional issues, the teacher may not break for meals until he or she feels it is appropriate. Breathe and stay in the present time.
24. This camp is about shifting your paradigm. There may be moments when you feel uncomfortable. Again, breathe and stay in the moment.
25. The more you can accept and withhold judgment, the greater your experience and outcome.
26. If a fellow student is having a crisis, offer your support and help him through it. After all, you may be next to need that support and help.
27. We all have issues that we deal with in our lives. Be prepared for the unexpected to present itself.
28. No one is exempt from problems. However, together we can strengthen each other and become a powerful force in the world, always setting an example of God’s pure love.
29. This will be a life-changing event for everyone. It will be difficult to say goodbye at the end of the week. Stay in the moment and make the most out of every experience.
30. If at any point during the week you have some free time and you’d like to take a walk, please inform a staff member that you are going and where you plan to walk. The ranch is very expansive, with a great number of open ranges and land stretching for miles. You could very easily get lost, and we’d like to be able to find you should that happen.
Skyrider Wilderness Ranch
The lodge sits among the quiet and tranquil Uinta Mountains at an elevation of 6,700 feet. The mountains tower above the ranch, reaching a height of 10,000 feet. The ranch is 5 miles long and 3.5 miles wide, so there’s plenty of space for everyone without crowding.
The drive from the Young Living corporate headquarters in Lehi to the ranch will be close to two hours. Make sure your cameras are accessible! From the time you turn up scenic Provo Canyon until you reach the ranch, you will see breathtaking scenery. The Tabiona Valley is home to one of the largest pinyon pine forests in the world. It is also the front yard of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and the famous Hole in the Wall Gang. There are many Native American hieroglyphs on the cliffs all around the ranch. The area was considered a sacred valley by the ancient natives of long ago. There is certainly a spirit of energy surrounding this land that is very compelling.
There is an elevator in the lodge for those with special needs. If you do need assistance of this kind, please let us know.
Tuesday evening will be a time to meet and greet, settle in, and gain focus on the new you.
Fishing and Shooting Range
Those who wish to bring their own guns or fishing gear will be responsible for their personal items. If you do not bring your own fishing gear, it will be furnished and assigned by staff when you arrive. Once you receive this gear, you are responsible for it. If it is not returned upon checkout, you will be charged.
If you would like to participate in the fishing outing, you must obtain a fishing license for the state of Utah prior to arrival. This can be done by clicking here.
Guns will not be allowed in the lodge rooms. There will be a designated gun room, where you will be required to check your gun for storage. Please keep all the ammunition separate from the gun (with your belongings), and your gun must remain unloaded at all times, except when on the shooting range. Once you finish on the range, please remove all ammunition from the gun, return the gun to the storage room, and place the unused ammunition back with your personal belongings. Skylar Olsen, the ranch guide, will be overseeing the gun storage room. Skylar will also be present at the shooting range and will inspect all the guns to ensure that these rules are followed. The storage room for the guns will be kept secure and locked.
Things you may want to consider bringing include: hiking boots, mountain clothing, evening clothing, evening jacket, running shoes, casual clothing for class, hat for outside sun protection, sunscreen, sun glasses, leather gloves, swimwear, fishing boots or water shoes, personal toiletries, personal snacks, gym clothes, tennis racket and tennis balls, and your essential oils and supplements. Many of these items are optional, depending on the activities you choose to participate in.
We may spend a night in the mountains. There will be time for trail rides, and horses will be available at the ranch. We will also spend an afternoon riding four-wheelers. There is gym equipment at the ranch available for all of those who don’t want to let their fitness routines slide during the trip; it is open 24 hours a day. Keep in mind that there will be a lot of time for weight lifting as you remove rocks from the fields.
If you are a vegetarian, you are in good company, as we have over 100 vegetarians on the ranch. They will not mind your grazing with them at all; we aim to please. A diet guided by Young Living standards will be served, along with wild elk, deer, buffalo, turkey, chicken, fish, and einkorn.
Wi-Fi will be available on site.
During class time, no recording will be allowed.Once class begins, cell phones must stay in your rooms. We want you to be 100 percent engaged in the purpose of this camp. For Level 1 attendees, make sure you have completed your reading assignment of The One Gift before arriving. If you did not receive your complimentary copy of the book, please send an email to email@example.com, and she will make sure to send you one right away.
This event is for serious-minded men who want to commit to a better way of life. This is your time, your moment to claim and conquer your mountain! If you are not willing to commit to the time as outlined to improve your life, then this is not the seminar for you.
