Me and my battle buddy attended the Healing Warrior Hearts retreat , September 5th-8th. We both are still in shock and awe of what we witnessed! The Cadre (staff) were most accommodating and attentive to our every need. We were made to feel "not alone." Our break through and healing started the instant we arrived! Our every concern, need, and reservation were acknowledged and resolved. I am so happy we attended, and recommend other Veterans partake too! We are looking forward to another weekend of healing as staff, in the near future. Thanks to the Starfish. Foundation for being a beacon on a dimly lit path!
ANYONE WHOSE HEART IS BROKEN DUE TO ANY WAR A MUST TO EXPERIENCE YOU WONT REGRET IT
awesome group, everyone should do it..five stars. two thumbs up. I a veteran I attended in July and walked away feeling brand new. A renewed spirit, a new outlook in life, with high positive emotion. I had a small "brush Plane' accident the following sunday in the mountain of Idaho, however I was able to walk away feeling untouchable and this i contribute to the group spirit.
I challenge every vet that suffers from PTSD, depression, anxiety, or MST to attend one of there programs. I flew out from California to Wisconsin and I tell you it was worth it. You owe it to yourself and your family to get the help you deserve. I promise you won't regret it!
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
I was an attendee and am now a volunteer. Attending Healing Warrior Hearts got me started on the healing path, after 40 years of personal abuse and military sexual trauma. I wish I had know about this sooner and started younger but it's never too late! or too soon! Give yourself this free gift and start enjoying life and relationships again. You deserve it!?!
A wonderful organization! Something that every veteran affected by PTSD should experience.

Until I made the decision to attend Taking It Lightly in November of 2013, I thought how I felt physically and emotionally was normal. I was skeptical of the program, and I didn't want to share myself emotionally with a group of strangers. I have attended many professional seminars where the mantra is "You get out of it what you put into it", not taking much away from the programs, so I didn't have high expectations of the TIL weekend. I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG! The Starfish Foundation's scholarship made it possible for me to attend the TIL weekend, and I have never experienced so much unconditional love and safety. I met many wonderful people that took the journey with me, and who continue to do so to this day. Since taking the weekend, I learned how much I do matter, and that my trust issues are not with others, but are with myself. I was so amazed at the weekend, I also volunteered to staff a weekend the following December. I couldn't wait to get back to new found environment of love, warmth, and safety. I have a long road ahead of me, and I look forward to future programs and staffing opportunities that will help me grow personally and professionally. I am blessed that someone thought enough of me to return me to the sea of love by introducing me to the Starfish Foundation and The Center for Creative Learning. THE ENTIRE STARFISH FAMILY IS AMAZING! With love and gratitude...Amber S.
Had it not been for the Starfish Foundation, I would not been able to experience the Taking It Lightly weekend. This resource was vital for me to experience personal and professional growth in my life. It provided me with essential maintenance for my life & I am so eternally grateful.
I'm honored to share my experience I had with the HEALING WARRIOR HEARTS organization. It also gives me great pleasure my feelings about the STAFF OF HEALING WARRIOR HEARTS. I attended the Wonderland Camp Retreat during September 19-22.2014. The entire weekend was awesome to me and for me. I never knew such a group existed; until a fellow veteran shared the benefits of attending a session with the HEALING WARRIOR HEARTS.
During my stay I was guided thru a series of steps that allowed me to get in touch with my mind, spirit, soul, and heart. I able to tell my story about my MST, PTSD, anger, anxiety, and grief that I had been carrying around on the inside of me for so long without any resolution. I was able to freely express myself without shame, embarrasement, or judgement. This really helped me to get some clarity, relief, joy, and peace.
The HEALING WARRIOR HEARTS STAFF was totally awesome! They were very supportive, courteous, caring, knowdledgeable, committed, and full of love and hugs from beginning to end. Thank You So Much HEALING WARRIOR HEARTS AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!
