“I can honestly say that the retreat was life changing for me. I came in that weekend not really understanding why I would feel or act a certain way after I would get home from work….after having a hard shift. At times I felt like I was the only one feeling this way. After your retreat, I realized that there are reasons why we act the way we do or feel how we do as first responders… and we aren’t crazy.

The neuroscience behind repeated trauma and what goes on in our brain (PTSD) was mind blowing… no pun intended. You made me feel normal. Your speakers made me feel normal. You helped me realize that there are simple techniques like breathing that can help relax us… and it also has so many other benefits.

You made me realize how important self care is and not to be sorry to take care of ourselves for once. I have tools now that will help me be successful in my career and in life.

I loved the retreat and EVERYONE involved. Thanks again for everything!”
