The Coming Home Project
May 29, 2012

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.
