Throughout history, warriors who were exposed to the horrors of combat have had to face the prospect of returning to their communities, and throughout history warriors have had to see to their own healing processes.
In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Adam Magers of the Warrior's Ascent. Adam is a US Army veteran of the war in Iraq. Warrior's Ascent teaches returning warriors how to heal their minds, bodies, and souls through holistic healing practices. Utilizing mindfulness and depth psychology, the Warrior's Ascent does not take the modern approach of merely seeking to fight the symptoms of PTS. Rather, they teach practices that allow the veterans they help to achieve mental and physical wholeness.
