Join fellow post-9/11 veterans to support one another and renew mind, body, spirit, and relationships in a beautiful, tranquil setting.
Designed to help veterans alleviate the psychological, relational, and spiritual injuries of war, this integrative program is underwritten and open to eligible post-9/11 male veterans. It is facilitated by a trained multidisciplinary team of veterans, psychotherapists, and interfaith leaders practicing holistic educational services for over a decade.
Together, we create an optimal environment for learning and healing, where isolation and stigma are replaced by the safety and belonging of community, and we rebuild meaning and purpose in our lives. Through wellness practices, small support groups, outdoor recreational activities, and expressive arts, we:
- Reconnect with ourselves and other veterans
- Share experiences in an atmosphere of mutual support and trust
- Learn stress management and emotional resilience skills, including mindfulness, qigong, and yoga
We also learn ways to improve communication and relationships, and we return home with new skills, inspiration, and connections.
This workshop gives Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom veterans the opportunity to share deeply about their experiences and commune with other veterans in an accepting and supportive environment. It is not a substitute for clinical treatment or psychotherapy.
This program is open to all eligible male veterans and active duty military personnel who have been deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan since September 11, 2001. No political or religious belief or affiliation is represented or required.
Teachers are subject to change.
