Workshop: Operation Veteran Freedom

A 4 session online workshop (or full day in person) specially designed for Military/Veteran families by a Vietnam era Combat Veteran (Jan McHenry).  It uses some of the technology of brain science and some of the technology of a very powerful and highly regarded educational corporation. This is not a suicide prevention workshop, instead it is more like an Operator's Guide to Your Brain.

You do NOT need to relive your trauma to be free!

Commitment:  Is for you to discover new ways to look at yourself, the world including your past and present circumstances. By seeing these things in a new light your past will no longer dictate to you how you feel and limit what actions you can take.

Outcomes:  Upon completion You will experience more Power, Freedom, Full Self-expression, and Peace Of Mind. 

Costs:  Sponsors cover expenses so that it is FREE for our Service Members, Veterans and their adult family members or caregivers.
