Save A Warrior™ has changed countless lives through our "War Detox" program, which supports the healing from Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS). We specialize in connecting Active Duty Military, Returning Veterans, and First Responders experiencing psychological trauma.
"There is nothing like this. I was in tears, because the human spirit, the dignity, the love, coming from the SAW Shepherds is astounding." - Raychad V. (SAW Cohort 007)
Save A Warrior™ takes timeless virtues - ideals like compassion, empathy, humility - and presents what is beautiful and good in a powerfully sacred experience. You can see this positive energy in the genuine joy with which SAW's "Shepherds" ( a best practice (Rand, 2011), evidence-based, peer-to-peer support model comprised of SAW alumni) serve their fellows, and you'll feel it long after your completion ceremony. As we approach the issue of suicide, we look at the whole person, realizing there are many pieces to this puzzle that must be located and pieced together. The goal of the "war detox" experience is to reduce pain and increase resiliency.
Imagine a wildly ambitious work of sacred theater in which all the elements have somehow fallen into place and meshed into a healing experience stranger and more beautiful, darker and funnier, more moving, more transcendent, than anyone, including SAW's creator, had any reason to expect. The healing arts are always a gamble; it's just that some "wounded healers" are willing to play for higher stakes than others, especially when the very lives of their own heroes are at stake. The only thing required to extract maximum benefit from this once-in-a-lifetime experience is to just sit quietly, be a good "witness", and watch the lives of others transform right before your eyes. If you're willing and able to muster the internal resources necessary to "lean in"... all the better. Save A Warrior is a blueprint for something seemingly impossible to achieve, something we can barely imagine for ourselves much less articulate; something that pierces us and transforms us and renders our lives larger and just a little more clearly illuminated than they'd been before. Can you imagine? Can you see this for yourself? Don't worry if this doesn't make sense; so long as what we're offering touches, moves and inspires you to act for yourself and for your own benefit. To discover more, you just have to trust us enough to "sit in the seat" and experience SAW, firsthand.
