Our Alumni Intensives provide an opportunity for participants to reconnect. They foster camaraderie, fun, and healing connection with each other and ourselves.

"Sharing my thoughts was so helpful in my healing process. I want to be more compassionate to myself and others, accept myself and others for who they are. Be loving to all."

- Jose Arana, U. S. Army

Our Alumni Events offer an opportunity for veterans who have participated in Veteran's PATH programs to come together in a renewing and replenishing way to reconnect and go deeper together into practice. Each year we will offer different events. In the past it has been a Whitewater Rafting Trip. This year it will be a work week at the Tassajara Zen Mountain Center, where we will be immersed in a beautiful, wild natural setting, with hot springs, a creek and national forest. Here we will have the chance to contribute to the community that has hosted many women's veterans retreats for Veteran's PATH through working on projects together. This will strengthen our own bonds of community as we offer our service. We will also have time to meditate and engage in mindfulness practice together.

Support from other veterans who have been traveling this same path is invaluable. This program is offered free of charge to veterans who have attended at least one other Veteran's PATH program.
