About the Foundation   News Briefs
Trauma affects individuals on mental, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual levels. Because of this, problems with post traumatic stress requires a full-spectrum approach to healing.

Many in the healing professions now recognize that traditional therapies alone are not completely successful in fully treating the variety of effects and symptoms of trauma. This may be particularly true for war trauma, but is not limited only to trauma resulting from war experience.

Our approach is to facilitate the integration of alternative, organic treatment modalities with traditional therapies in order to better treat the whole person, including family and community.

Returning Warriors™ Program
The weekend and weeklong Returning Warriors™ retreats introduce key concepts and experiences used since ancient times, with the goal to provide information and teach skills for coping with war trauma in everyday living situations.
