I got this note from a member of the Veteran Business Owners Network, of which I am a member.

To: Women Veterans and Women Military Family Members,
Please join us at the upcoming Women Warriors In Transition (WWIT) workshop October 26th and 27th, 2013.
WWIT is open to ALL women veterans and ALL women military family members.
This 2-day, 16-hour – Intensive Equine Facilitated Experiential Learning program is designed to address the critical need veterans and family members have — in finding positive ways to manage stress, anxiety and depression. Participants of WIT gain peace of mind, have new insights, find different perspectives, and reignite their optimism and action for a healthy future.
Horses collaborate with fate. They accept what-is, spending their time in a relaxed, yet aware state…not spending time in wishful thinking, or dwelling on past worst outcomes. This equals emotional and social agility that arises naturally when you’re not afraid of life.
Now we have the chance to step out of the saddle, to come out from behind the cart and plow and listen, really listen, to these insightful non-predatory animals. As we begin to do so, we glimpse a new form of power. We discover a compassionate, courageous, inner and outer command that stands up to predators and protects vulnerable group members. This core of truth that collaborates with nature—is a form of power that horses silently embody while standing in our midst.
