Veterans Retreat Update

Veterans Retreat:  Blue Cliff Monastery
Pine Bush, New York

So far they have raised over $7,000 to provide funding for veterans to attend the event.
The goal is $15,000!  There is still time left to help support.

If you had the opportunity to visit the link and video for the retreat, then you had the opportunity to listen to Brother Michael. He contacted me some months back as he and the others were gathering ideas on how to make this event happen.  The retreat is geared for veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.

We spoke at length about the impact of PTSD and the need for giving veterans an opportunity to explore holistic and alternative ways of managing symptoms of post-traumatic stress and trauma. I am more than honored that they contacted me to be a part of this retreat. The brothers of the monastery will be offering sessions in their own methods of meditation, but I will be offering energy work treatments at the retreat. The retreat will include a variety of professionals, all gathering for the benefit of offering veterans an opportunity to learn and experience alterative methods of handling and managing stress.

If you are an OIF/OEF veteran who would like to attend or if you know of an OIF/OEF veteran would like to attend the retreat, please send me an e-mail and I will point you in the right direction.
