THE STORY:

I recently attended Boulder Crest Retreat's Warrior PATHH program. Warrior PATHH (Progressive and Alternative Therapies for Healing Heroes) is Boulder Crest Retreat's 7-day combat stress recovery program. Warrior PATHH is based on the concept of Post Traumatic Growth, which is the notion that struggle with a major life crisis or traumatic event can lead to positive changes. I can proudly inform you, the reader and hopeful benefactor, that this program put me on a path, in one week, that four years of other methods could not. The unconventional yet highly effective methodologies such as equine therapy and transcendental meditation have changed my life, helped me achieve a level of self-awareness I have never known, and will enable me to be my full, best self. I want to see every combat veteran that needs this program get it. There was a point during this class that, after much group talk and meditation, I had been told I needed to admit a repressed memory, a childhood trauma. I was broken afterwards, and we were told to walk a labyrinth, a time honored tradition of warriors, and the class would need a leader. Before I could even muster words, I was chosen, and informed it was because of what I had displayed up until that point. I was told to take up sword and shield, and lead my teammates through. This moment was the turning point of my life.
