“With September 11th approaching, many in the military-veteran community were already reminded of their sacrifices, but recent events in Afghanistan have amplified emotions and distress, which can increase the risk of suicide,” says Mary Beth Leisen, PhD, of Veteran’s PATH. “Path to Healing will create a space for veterans to connect, decompress, and practice tools that support wholeness and well-being. We’ve seen the power of mindfulness and connection to transform lives. We’re excited to partner with Chopra Global for this vital mission.”

Everyone in the military-veteran community is welcome to join.
