War and the Soul Workshop - In Pictures

I attended the War and the Soul Workshop conducted by Dr. Edward Tick today, author of the highly recommended book War and the Soul: Healing Our Nation's Veterans from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. If there is a direction we might move in to help our returning veterans spiritually find their way back home, I think this is it.

On a beautifully crisp and clear winter day, Dr. Tick kicked off the first part of his four-day combat PTSD program at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. David "Eight Eagles" Granados of the Earth Lodge Foundation joined Dr. Tick in the teaching of cleansing rituals used by a wide variety of cultures throughout the ages to help warriors successfully fold back into society after conflict.

Slides were used to bring the Greek period to life, a time ruled by the war gods Ares and Athena, and to take us back to Vietnam on a journey seeking closure and release.

One of the more moving moments of the day was Dr. Tick's request for veterans to stand for a moment to allow us to honor them and welcome them home. Two Marine, six Army, four Air Force and two Navy service members stood and introduced themselves. Collectively, they had served in Korea, Vietnam, the Cold War, Gulf War, and Iraq.

With Dr. Tick's help, and his Sanctuary/Soldier's Heart project, we can go far in making sure that veterans -- of all wars -- receive the welcome home and support that they truly deserve.

Please consider offering a small contribution to this foundation so that it may continue its important work. And take the time to view one of Dr. Tick's recent War and the Soul engagements...I guarantee you'll benefit greatly from his words and deeds.
