Overview of Retreats

Patricia Clason, Founder, at Mental Health Summit

War is more than the official theatre of combat. Beyond physical action, it is a battle of the spirit resulting in moral or spiritual injury and emotional trauma to the military and to the families and friends who support them.

Healing Warrior Hearts guides the wounded to the peace that heals and strengthens their hearts. The gathering of community, unconditional love and the absence of judgment create the safety required for healing to occur. Veterans will experience a community of support from fellow vets as well as civilians, people committed and willing to listen to the vets’ stories with compassion and confidentiality and without judgment, helping heal their hearts.

Healing Warrior Hearts retreats guide the wounded to the peace that heals and strengthens their hearts.

The gathering of community, unconditional love and the absence of judgment create the safety required for healing to occur. Veterans and families come together with civilians in retreats and other events to tell their stories and heal their hearts.


These programs are designed, led and staffed by experienced, committed and spirit-inspired individuals.

"Healing Warrior Hearts has forever changed my outlook and calmed me in a good way. From the weekend retreat I participated in, I keep finding myself with new insights and a new found energy. Yes it takes a lot to drag around the pain from day to day, from year to year. Healing Warrior Hearts truly gave great gifts freely, unconditionally and from their hearts.


If you are a fellow Veteran looking to heal from invisible wounds of your military service, I highly encourage you to sign up for one of their weekend retreats. You will not be disappointed!


Again thank you Healing Warrior Hearts for taking the time to care for us. I deeply appreciate the healing space among fellow Veterans and staff that support us. Like the song Home says... 🎶 Settle down, it'll all be clear, Don't pay no mind to the demons, they fill you with fear. The trouble it might drag you down, If you get lost, you can always be found, Just know you're not alone, 'Cause I'm going to make this place your home. 🎶 God bless you Healing Warrior Hearts!"
