Veteran Retreats

Mehadi Foundation RetreatsMehadi Foundation retreats allow veterans to experience peer support and creativity as a healing practice.*

The duration of each retreat is a long weekend, and is a gathering of about thirty veterans who are diverse in terms of race, age, gender, and gender identity. Veterans are provided with housing, food, tools and materials, and travel to retreats at various locations throughout the nation.

The daily schedule at each retreat includes writing and performance art workshops, as well as tactile arts such as sculpture workshops that are led by Jeff Key and other veterans. Practices that incorporate Native American spirituality as well as traditions surrounding the warrior are taught, in addition to meditation techniques.

Time is also spent on building veteran-to-veteran relationships that are meant to continue after the retreat has ended. Veterans share a frame of reference, and peer support is intended to enable listening, not the giving of advice.

Our goal is to have a retreat once a month, and to train other veterans to lead retreats.

Retreats can be tailored to meet the needs of your veterans' organization or individual veterans.

* If veterans are able to get mental health care elsewhere — through the VA, for instance — by all means, they should use it. These retreats are meant to serve as a supplement.
