During this four day retreat you will discover the power within yourself to overcome your greatest challenges in life. Whether you've had multiple combat tours, or are simply struggling to reintegrate after service, this retreat will be life changing.

Throughout these four days, you will experience 12 classroom lessons that cover our healing principles, equine assisted facilitation, art therapy, yoga, meditation, massage, chiropractic adjustment, and essential oils class. You will also lathe your own hand-made pen to take home. We also offer evening activities that include horseshoes, archery, axe throwing and fishing. In addition to all of these great activities a nightly bonfire and s'mores will be available.

On the final day of the retreat, you will craft your new mission/vision statement. This will help you to move forward with confidence, clarity and a sense of purpose. A graduation ceremony will be held at the end of the retreat and we encourage you to invite your family.
