Healing Warrior Hearts retreats are provided to veterans at no charge to them. http://www.healingwarriorhearts.org Designed to assist veterans in healing the emotional and spiritual wounds of military service, veterans and civilians come together in a peer-support environment to listen with compassion and without judgment to the stories that must be told for healing to occur.
Patricia Clason and Christan Kramer, co-founders of Healing Warrior Hearts, started this work in 1993 with the Bamboo Bridge, a retreat for Vietnam Veterans. The work has evolved over the last twenty years to be inclusive of all veterans and all emotional and spiritual issues related to military service.
The work now also includes a program for military couples, to help partners learn more about trauma, it's impact on the body, mind and spirit, plusl tools for communication and building a healthy relationship.
These retreats are sponsored by the Starfish Foundation Inc. and offered in Wisconsin and Texas.
