Veteran Retreats DocuSeries travels North America exploring various retreat programs for Veterans that use complimentary alternative medicine to manage and heal occupational stress injuries.
In this reality series we bear witness to the lives of veterans and their intimate path to self- discovery using nature, spirituality and community. We chronicle the daily struggles faced by our men and women that have returned home from combat and military service. This show series provides insight into the multiple modalities available that offer support and fellowship.
Veterans initiate the healing process by sharing their stories in a safe, non-judgmental, veteran centric space. We highlight the veterans helping veterans, best practices, and programs doing the work necessary to support their fellow veterans to return to self. Veteran Retreats Show Series highlights the veteran’s stories of struggle to transition back to civilian life.
These healing retreats intend to provide veterans and their family members with opportunities for engaging in various therapeutic, recreational and community-building social activities and to experience a place and time specifically designated for them. These retreats relate to experiencing connection with the natural world and others who have gone through the same process.
The Veteran Retreats Foundation identifies retreats that are founded & facilitated by veterans that have transitioned themselves and are professionally trained. Participants allow The Veterans Channel to film them in their most vulnerable states with the hope that it may save or improve the life of a fellow veteran, that they would know that they are not alone.
With 1 Million Heroes returned from Iraq & Afghanistan bearing the mental & physical wounds of war, this show helps everyone to understand the crisis veterans are facing.
