Soulful travel, Eastern spirituality, and healing trauma...
Oct 31-Nov 14, 2017: Soldier’s Heart co-founders Ed Tick (psychotherapist, author of War and the Soul and The Practice of Dream Healing) and Kate Dahlstedt (psychotherapist, group leader, writer) will co-lead the 17th annual Healing and Reconciliation Journey to Viet Nam.
Everyone is welcome to join as we explore some deeply archetypal themes!
Our in-country guide and ARVN veteran Tran Song will assist us. Our journey will focus on immersing in the wonderful people, culture, country and spirituality of the real Viet Nam, along with healing old war wounds; achieving forgiveness and reconciliation between American and Vietnamese vets and civilians; and practicing the healing of deep trauma.
A special feature of this year's trip will be a international Veterans Day healing ceremony that will include veterans from different countries and different factions of the war. All our journeys to Viet Nam are unforgettable experiences of healing, forgiveness, restoration, peacemaking and joy.
While the journey is designed in part around the interests and experiences of our veterans and survivors, everyone is welcome.
The journey will include several days in Ho Chi Minh City, the Mekong Delta, and in Hanoi sharing with Vietnamese veterans and professional colleagues. Additional stops determined by the needs of our travelers.
The Vietnamese are waiting for us. We will be welcomed as honored guests in their country and we will experience both personal growth and healing and collective healing when we join the mission of war healing for everyone.
These are not pre-packaged tours. Each journey is uniquely designed for the healing and educational needs of our participants.
Projected cost: $3,900, including all land, sea and air travel in Viet Nam, all hotels, guides, admissions, fees and philanthropy projects in Viet Nam.
Int'l airfare NOT included.
Please contact us ASAP to provide a $500 deposit (includes $100 non-refundable registration fee).
If you are a veteran and finances are difficult, please contact us. We have a matching financial aid fund to help bring veterans or family members back to Viet Nam, and we have guided veterans in raising money.
We keep our groups small, so space is limited. We look forward to hearing from you and traveling together on the adventure of a lifetime.
Hoa Binh means Peace in Vietnamese. Help us make peace and bring healing to our veterans, our countries and the world
