I attended a Coming Hme retreat several years ago as a mental health professional who works with combat veterans. From the beginning there was a feeling of togetherness, mutual respect, and support that was welcomed and regenerative. The entire event was organized and conducted in a professional and therapeutic but also playful manner. The mixture of activities and offerings allowed me and others to connect with each other and with ourselves at a deeper level than was available in the daily practice of life. Much of what I experienced has stayed with me and I would welcome the opportunity for a refresher retreat. Events such as the retreat I attended are revitalizing and I suspect they pay off in more ways than can be measured. In addition to the reprieve from a demanding work schedule, there is the anti-burnout format which allows one to return to work with renewed energy, new ideas, and newly formed contacts. I'd like to see such events being provided on a regular basis for those who work with combat veterans and their families but I am very grateful that I was at least able to participate in the one I did.

I attended a retreat for clinicians working with returning veterans and found it to be the most rewarding, enriching and revitalizing experience of my life. Returning from that retreat 2 years ago enabled me to better fully connect with and be there for the returning veterans with whom I worked. Having attended the retreat with veterans and family members that also happened to be clinicans, I also saw first hand how incredibly healing this program is. Jo and his staff are unparalleled.

The Coming Home Project is the most dedicated, professional, realistic honest organization helping our nation's warriors! The compassion for warriors and provider support exceeded my expectations! I know non profits are struggling financially - and I strongly recommend that they receive funding to continue their work. Please anyone, If you can help, do it! and the nation will be grateful for your support.

i have participated in a number of retreats for the Coming Home Project. I have seen outstanding results that this program has to offer for Vets of the recent wars. I have evaluated another non profit in this field and from my point of view nothing can be compared. Howard I. Levene, M.D.

I have attended a training session for the Coming Home Project. I was instructed in methodologies to treat veterann's as an MFT, and particiapated in the multi-modal method that the Coming Home project has created. In my professional opinion, these techniques have the potential to positively impact innumerable vets and their families. I have been asked to be a co facilitator in the San Diego in June, and am thrilled to be able to participate in this ground-breaking retreat. Lisa Gavin Cruse, MFT

While informative for self-care and relaxing, the event is highly structured from early morning through the evening. Although they caution participants against proselyting, be advised the primary instruction (under Joseph Bobrow) is and follows buddhist principles, to include a primary presentation by Steve Torgerson which discounts the spiritual value of revealed religious truth and religion.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Refreshing my studied understanding of Buddhism and, in response, committing myself even more to the practical importance of revealed Judeo-Christian Truth as the source of hope for combatants facing and dealing with the spirituality of death.
