Honoring the original meaning of Memorial Day, this is for all who wish to heal the effect of war on themselves, their families, and our nation.

All of us, especially our veterans and their families, feel the effect of war and need time, removed from life’s pressures, to reflect and heal from our war wounds, losses, and concerns. Ed and Kate have worked with veterans and their families for nearly four decades. They invite you—whether you’re a veteran, active-duty military service member, family member, helping professional, or other caring civilian—to join this Memorial Day intensive retreat. They’ll introduce you to a pioneering method of healing, exploring the inner world of combat and the universal dimensions of warriorhood through storytelling, self- and family testimonies, history, mythology, cross-cultural ceremonies, and more. You’ll practice guiding warriors and civilians on the journey to restoring wholeness, working together to help rebuild identities, shrink trauma, and bring meaning to tragedy.
