Skeptical would be an upgrade to how I felt about another resource that was supposed to help me deal with the hurt and anger related to the sexual trauma I experienced in the military but Thank God I trusted my friend Kim's recommendation! Having just a glimpse of how it changed her more than decades of previous resources had, I decided to give it a chance. The Healing Warrior Hearts retreat was expertly organized and staffed by the kindest, most professional people! Patricia and the other instructors along with the volunteer staff were incredibly attentive and insightful into what my issue was and how to help me release it! The intro to neuroscience helped me understand that I've basically been "checked out" for nearly 15 years, that I've been blaming myself and living with shame. Now, I'm learning to recognize the dysfunction and depression that have been holding me back and find new ways of responding to all of that so I can enjoy life and my family while helping others do the same. Forever grateful, Dianne

We were at the end of our marriage with no hope in sight. The couples weekend changed our lives as well as our marriage. Where there was no hope we now see hope. I could t recommend this event enough. I've told every military couple I know what a wonderful and heart opening experience we had. I am forever grateful for what they did for us.

HOPE~ Life provides many stepping stones for our hearts to heal in creating the path of the journey to recovery we all may take. Every now and then, you have the opportunity to cross a bridge. I attended Healing Warrior Hearts/MST Weekend Sep 11-13, 2015. For the first time I was able to learn how to not simply cross a bridge, but to build it, strengthen it, and trust in the positive energy and support of the participants and staff who built it with me -- knowing I will never again need to feel alone on my journey. Thank you for welcoming me home, allowing my warrior heart to know healing, leaving me with more than possibilities, yet with an everlasting HOPE~

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?

2014

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!?!
