Uplifting Intuition Retreat -PTSD & Trauma healing

Please donate because:
     
     The chance to understand the root causes of stress, anger, physical and mental ailments without medications; or exposure to reliving trauma via conventional psychology can be part of the past.  We have a holistic approach that has aided healing for centuries.  Resetting in nature, meditation, yogic resilience techniques, along with Ayahuasca transformational abilities gives that opportunity!  By donating, you support reintegrating our heroes into society; a gap in our culture we mend by healing one.  The old proverb of the amazon is that 'we heal one, we heal all'.   Biocognitive science teaches trauma is transferred as well as wellness.  Our fundraising intends to provide a fully-sponsored retreat.
     This retreat is for warriors who were asked or heard the call to protect.   Service Members defend our country and stay committed to the plight!  They don't back down even when an internal struggle is in sight.  Reintegration into the ebb and flow of modern everyday life is actually harder than having boots on the ground.  To be well 'mind, body and spirit', is the new battlefield.  Nothing about being overseas and/or in war zones is normal.  Furthermore, the latch key child of the Military grows up in a single parent or broken home setting most of their life.  The battlefield is the concrete jungle.   Despite the Service member’s honor to sustain one's family, on the home-front the absence can cause emotional and mental trauma resulting in addictions.  Research shows wartime parental deployment can be the most stressful events of a child's life.
But, we know so much more now and can protect them! 
*** Help us end cyclic trauma and suicides by resetting our warriors back to true wellness.   

Why venture to the Peruvian Amazon: 
     Nature is the perfect environment for transformation and reintegration to occur organically.  Nothing can beat the therapy of tuning out, to tune in.  Our retreat gently lights the path of self-empowerment, inner peace, and self-awareness.  We offer tools to replace methodologies such as yoga sessions twice a day, organic wholesome delicious meals,  indigenous ancient wisdom, educational nature trails, and cleansing river trips; to dive deep into well-being.  This retreat is a perfect recipe for the renewal of the mind and body.  Fundraising Intention is to fully sponsor their entire retreat.

They will:
- Establish a practical Yogic practice
- Experience ancient plant medicine knowledge
- Learn tools from ancient songs, traditions, food, and wisdom
- Connect with their very own indigenous traditions and regain cultural integrity 
- Gain deeper awareness and revive the 5 senses by of turning off and tuning in
- Reset, Heal, Increase or Gain Intuition and Connect with their Purpose
*** Fundraising Intention is to provide a fully-sponsored retreat. 

Who are the chosen ones are:
Our Military service members Active or Veterans; and their dependents will be selected because they need assistance.  Selectees are pillars within the family, work, school, and community circles.
