A hero is an ordinary person who survives an extraordinary experience, and returns to share important truths they learned so they can enrich the lives of others. Our workshops are designed to transform deep struggle into profound strength and personal growth focusing on healthy and life affirming tools that develop self regulation rather than self medication. Those who serve our nation and communities, put their lives at risk, and battle the mental challenges that come with it, should never feel alone. Together we can ensure no one is left behind.

“Opportunities to find deeper powers within ourselves come when life seems the most challenging”

~ J.Campbell
