Welcome Home Program for Returning Combat Veterans - Free Basic Training for Life
Free Weekend Retreats in Payson
The 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.
Through group 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.
