A Retreat for Women Serving or Who Served in the Military

Course: SM15-5805-391 Tuition: $75

This women-only retreat for the military-veteran community focuses on the unique issues of women’s military service (including sexual trauma and other invisible wounds) and builds a safe, supportive environment to explore the strengths, resilience, concerns, and vulnerabilities of women who have served.

Led by military-veterans advocate Laurie Leitch, codirector of Threshold GlobalWorks; Zuleikha, founder of the Storydancer Project; and Chanel Best, a reservist and New York City police officer—the retreat provides a variety of experiential activities, including group dialogue, yoga and other restorative health practices, creative expression, and resiliency skill-building training.

WHAT WE DO

The Storydancer Project (TSP), a non-profit international artistic health resource organization, serves girls, women, children and families facing challenging life circumstances by providing innovative Core Wellness Exercise and Movement Arts programs and trainings that foster and enliven greater health, self-esteem, resilience and leadership. TSP is a 501(c)(3) organization, based in Santa Fe, NM, which offers its programs free of charge. TSP works in partnership with organizations and communities locally and globally. We particularly focus on collaborating to create sustainable, train-the-trainer programs that provide the most effective long-term support for our partnering communities.

TSP’S CORE WELLNESS MODEL

TSP’s Core Wellness Exercise and Movement Arts Model incorporates exercise, movement, rhythm, music and story to develop a resilient and enlivened sense of self, strengthen participants’ connection to their bodies and establish a sound foundation for joy and health.

TSP was created in 2001 by Zuleikha to address the lack of wellness education and resources for girls and women locally and internationally and to bring rejuvenation, leadership and self-care skills to girls, women, children and families facing challenging life circumstances such as poverty, illness, war, and natural disasters.
