RegainingBalance Retreat for Veterans with PTSD

June 27 @ 6:00 pm - July 1 @ 4:00 pm

Regaining Balance is a non-sectarian outreach program of Mountain Gate-Sanmonji, a Zen Buddhist community in northern New Mexico. The program is free to both women veterans diagnosed with PTSD and women partnered with veterans with PTSD.

  • June 27 – July 1, 2018
  • September 26-30, 2018

Retreats are small, and staffed by women volunteers whose training and professions make them especially qualified to be of service in these healing retreats. (Download a BROCHURE including dates of upcoming retreats.)

During each retreat, participants learn meditation practices specifically shown to help calm the nervous system, take part in quiet, grounding day hikes in the nearby wilderness, have a chance to practice art as healing therapy, and have the opportunity to be with other women vets and women partnered with vets diagnosed with PTSD.
