Program for Returning Combat Veterans
Weekend Retreats in Payson
Merritt Center is offering a special educational retreat program for combat veterans.
With the assistance of mentors, who are veterans themselves, and healing
practitioners; returning vets will open the program with a Talking
Circle to begin to release the experiences of war, and to begin to
create the dream of a new life.
and individual activities, participating veterans will learn to recognize
the triggers of
negative combat experience and learn ways to release negativity and
reorder their personal priorities. They will learn to cleanse themselves
of toxins of mind, body, emotions and spirit. The final retreat weekend
will include family members who will join in a celebration of service
and the awakening of a new vision of their future.
All returning veterans are welcomed to participate free of charge.
