We are proud to announce an exciting new concept that blends art, mindfulness, and meditation for helping our Warriors, the Veterans and First Responders in our community, heal their unsettled minds from the devastating effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, commonly known as PTSD.

 

 During the 90-day program our Warriors will take part in a 9 weeks of classes, which includes a variety of art mediums, focusing on mindfulness and meditation. The course is designed as a follow up to their care after completing treatment for PTSD and to develop tools to help them stay on course to healing.

 

 Founders, Gary and Trish Walker, have experienced the benefits of the healing practice of art, meditation, and mindfulness to combat the trauma of PTSD. Both having, traveled the journey of the unsettled mind, continue to use these techniques to treat their own trauma. Gary, a Disabled United States Air Force Veteran and artist, practices art to quiet his crushing anxiety and depression. Trish Walker, a licensed Yoga Instructor, and recent Breast Cancer Survivor, provides her experience and expertise to provide help and care for others in crisis. Together, Gary and Trish, bring a blend of art and meditation techniques that will assist in unlocking new ways to cope with restless minds and spirits associated with PTSD.

 

 FREE of Charge – Funding has been provided to cover all costs of materials and allows participants to take their projects home after graduation.

 A safe environment that is designed with your comfort in mind. We have created a calming environment where our Warriors can connect and share in a common goal – quieting a noisy mind. Did we mention it is also fun?

 

If you would like to volunteer, contribute, or refer a Warrior who could benefit from this experience, please contact us.
