Green Room, 3rd Floor Montview Presbyterian Church 1980 Dahlia Street Denver, Colorado, 80220

Facilitator: Margaret Arms, PhD

It has been said that there are no atheists in foxholes and it has been said that there are only atheists in foxholes. Either way, combat experiences can affect the faith of vet’s and their loved ones in significant ways. This retreat is for vets and/or loved ones of vets who have experienced military related trauma/loss and who wish to reengage in a relationship with the Divine (or perhaps engage for the first time) but are unsure how to begin that work. This day is designed as a day of spiritual exploration and is not a treatment group. It is most appropriate for participants who are no longer experiencing acute PTSD symptoms.

Dr. Margaret Arms is has extensive experience working with trauma survivors, including vets, first as a psychotherapist and now as a spiritual director. She has led numerous retreats and groups for trauma survivors focused on finding their way back to the Divine Presence in their lives.

Retreat is limited to 15 people. Cost is $50. For more information or to register, call Centus Counseling Center . Some special funding is available to help with registration cost.

It will include resources for reviving body, mind and spirit. Dr. Arms is an experienced spiritual director who works with trauma survivors. She understands well the need for attending to our own souls as we engage in this work. Retreat limited to 16 people. Cost is $125 per person / box lunch included.
