10 day combat veteran immersion
FOR COMBAT VETERAN APPLICANTS ONLY!
If you are a combat veteran who has been diagnosed with PTS and /or TBI, please read this next sentence carefully. THIS is why Beneath the Surface Foundation was created; to gift you with an opportunity to restore your sense of self through whole-person, alternative healing modalities and a community of brothers and sisters. These immersions are designed to match intensity with intensity. We will be exposing you, in a healthy way, to the ‘extreme’ versions of these skills/sports in order to parallel the internal magnitude of adrenaline that was present during combat.
Yoga & Ocean therapy
By surrendering, and opening to the ocean’s maternal energy, burdens and traumas become completely weightless. The interweaving of yogic philosophy and asana (physical practice) provides a newfound trust of the self and others. The location and security of the immersion is a safe space to be open to heal, shed traumas, tune inward, and harmoniously engage with nature and one another.
Spend 10 days with 15 brothers and sisters who will quickly become your greatest support team, while immersing in a lifestyle you can recreate in your every day life. Learn new skills, heal the trauma and pain you experience from combat, explore new modalities that assist in healing, spend time developing self awareness, and reignite your love for life through mindfulness activities and adult learning.
