Building CommunityEducation & Spiritual Practice

Veterans healing trauma through mindfulness

The Veterans Path mission statement says: “Veterans Path enables returning veterans to rediscover meaning, purpose, and joy in their lives through mindfulness, meditation, and a safe community.” The organization is looking to expand its current programming to reach more veterans all over the country, and to develop self-sustaining communities. Please contact them if you are interested in offering your support in any way.

We have been privileged to host women veterans for several retreats led by Veterans Path (formerly Honoring the Path of the Warrior) and are committed to continuing our sponsorship of their events here. In September 2017, we host segments of both the women’s and the men’s anchor programs.

Supporters — please contact us if you are interested in sponsoring room, board or travel to a 2017 or 2018 retreat for a veteran — any amount helps.

Veterans — please see the Veterans Path site for more information on a range of events.

For anyone interested in mindfulness practices that have been found effective for many people, see Veterans Path resources for guided meditations.
