MILITARY VETERANS' AND RETURNING SOLDIERS' SPOUSES, PARTNERS AND FAMILIES

Spouses, partners, parents and children of service-people live every day with with the lasting effects of the military experience. Military families cope with long periods of separation, having to manage the demands of everyday life alongside the emotional impact of deep concern for a loved one's safety. You will know the stress and struggles of the soldier's return home, the physical injuries and also the invisible wounds of war. If you are the spouse/partner/significant other of a veteran or military serviceperson, and you would like some sensitive support and understanding, please contact us, we are running events specifically for you.

We offer supportive, friendly and effective training in meditation, mindfulness-based stress relief and non-violent communication skills. These tools can support well-being and positive states of mind, increasing inner resources in oneself and in relation to others. You will be amongst a small group of other military spouses and partners and there will be space to share your experience, relax with the meditations, and learn new and useful skills.
