WarRetreat is brought to you by Kanani Fong, a military spouse, and Jillian Hunsanger, a graduate student and SO of a Marine.
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 began as a tribute for the late Tim Hetherington, an “image-maker,” photographer, author, filmmaker, Oscar nominee, and all around good friend to everyone who met him. After he was killed covering the conflict in Libya. We had a one-time retreat for his fellow conflict photographers in Cambridge MA. We’ve continued the blog,
- 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.
