How Healing of Memories Workshop Helps Arizona Veterans
The Healing of Memories Workshop is a major step that helps veterans to begin the healing journey. It provides a safe place to explore personal histories and gain insight and empathy for themselves and others. Participation provides a safe experiential and interactive way to overcome of anger, loss, grief and guilt and can be one step on the journey to healing and wholeness. It contributes not only to personal healing, but also to the healing interpersonal relationships.
