Honoring The Path of the Warrior
Honoring the Path of the Warrior is a program that assists post-deployed veterans in making a positive transition from military to civilian life. Our project provides community, tools and a path towards being of service and achieving goals. We teach meditation and mindfulness skills during retreats and are a project under the fiscal sponsorship of the San Francisco Zen Center.
Our Vision We envision a community where veterans can support each other in ways which promote growth and healing through the cultivation of understanding and kindness in service to others.
Our Mission We provide a pathway of meditation and mindfulness for veterans which welcomes, honors, and integrates their service and leadership. We accomplish this through:
• Creating a community that provides safety, support and refuge to veterans in easing the transition to civilian life.
• Offering meditation and mindfulness retreats combined with outdoor activities which foster connection and healing.
• Supporting the leadership of veterans in facilitating retreats and in creating bridges of understanding with the wider community.
