WILDERNESS WARRIOR PROJECT
"The Wilderness Warrior Project was created to assist Veterans who may be struggling to find their way among the chaos. Using nature as a healing tool, it is our intention to help Veterans rediscover the peace within the Warrior, guidance in the process of surrendering experiences which no longer serve a greater purpose and to provide them with a foundation for the life they deserve as they move forward. It's the war within ourselves we often struggle with most."
The hostel is located in Maine's most pristine mountainous region, where rivers, lakes, trails, summits, waterfalls and hidden gems are abundant. Veterans will be paired up with someone they served with and guided along extended backpacking & canoeing trips while learning the four basics of survival and primitive living skills. This experience will give each of us the opportunity to decompress and share in the comradery with our fellow warriors. We all know pharmaceuticals are not "cures" they only seem to drown or bury the pain, alternative healing in the form of guided meditation, sweat lodges, yoga, massage and Nature will offer a much more affective way of healing our inner selves. Sometimes all it takes is sitting around a fire on the mountain under a celestial starry night and reminiscing with a band of brothers & sisters.
100% of donations goes towards the Wilderness Warriors Project & the expenses of each Veterans journey. Veterans have already paid enough, it is my intention for this to be a zero cost wilderness healing experience.
