Who We Are

HPW provides free-of-charge, one-day events and retreats throughout the year.  These programs offer a unique combination  – engaging activities, nature and community with mindfulness-based tools – that are effective in reducing stress, anxiety, depression, isolation and other difficult emotions that many veterans experience.  Read more on our About pages.

“I can honestly wholeheartedly say that during the five days I spent at Tassajara last year, I  had more remarkable healing… than I have had in six years of therapy… “  ~ Meg Lowry, Marine Corps Veteran

“The act of pulling a trigger from a man made weapon on another human being has shattered my person. You both have given me the hope and energy I need to some how find a way to try to put my shattered soul back together.”
~ Steve Lewis, US Army Veteran
