Workshop: Release and Reframe

A 1-day in person workshop specially designed for Military/Veteran & First Responder families by a Vietnam era Navy Veteran & First Responder (Doug Hudson).  It uses 3 amazing guided visualization to give attendees a Release from trauma and a way to Reframe something new in its place. This is not a suicide prevention workshop.

You do NOT need to have experienced trauma to see amazing benefits from this workshop!

Comment from our course designer and trainer Doug Hudson:
    "We have heard it said that you must live with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder for the rest of our life. What if that was not true?"

Commitment:  Is for you to discover new ways to look at yourself, the world including your past and present circumstances. By seeing these things in a new light your past will no longer dictate to you how you feel and limit what actions you can take.

Outcomes:  Upon completion You will experience more Freedom and Peace Of Mind. 

Costs:  Sponsors cover expenses so that it is FREE for our Service Members, Veterans, First Responders, and their adult family members or caregivers.
