What we’re about: Restoration and Recovery through the active life.
- WarRetreat is a social networking platform to highlight organizations that help veterans through sports, outdoor recreation, yoga, and the arts. We also run articles on studies about trauma. Movement & breath have been shown to reduce stress, lower the blood pressure, and leads to an overall sense of well-being. Organized activities give veterans and the family a sense of community.
We also share information through Facebook and Twitter @WarRetreat.
- War Retreat is the home of the War Photographers’ Retreat held in honor of the late Tim Hetherington in 2011. (See photos below).
- WarRetreat welcomes organizations and people to write posts for and share their events on this blog.
- WarRetreat has a preference for organizations that are veteran-initiated and run.
