Journey Of The Warrior 

STRATEGIES TO REDUCE POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS

 

Warriors, warriors we call ourselves.

We fight for splendid virtue, for high endeavor, for sublime wisdom, therefore we call ourselves warriors.

Aunguttara Nikaya

From the opening pages of Dan Millman's "Way Of The Peaceful Warrior"

The above quote is a great summary of what Journey of the Warrior is based on.

'Splendid virtue' - positive, intentional and goal driven creation of our daily lives.

'High endeavor'- finding the maximum level of accomplishment and happiness in our careers.

'Sublime wisdom' - using the knowledge and lessons from our life experiences to provide us peace.

First responders are under constant stress and can find it difficult to turn off their “fight or flight” response mode, even when in the comfort of their own homes. Research shows first responders are TWICE more likely to die by their own hand than those in other professions – and it’s believed that due to underreporting, the true suicide rate is actually much higher.

  • Examine differences between responding vs. reacting to triggers or stimuli.

  • Learn physical movements to absorb then redirect negative resistance.

  • Daily internal habits that heal the body to enable overall wellness.

  • Design new outlooks for a positive, peaceful and energized daily life.
