Incarcerated Veterans Are Finding Relief In Meditation And Yoga
Military service members are sent to battle under the pretense of protecting their fellow citizens. When they return war torn, battle weary, and broken, they deserve to be embraced for their sacrifice and supported when in need. Suffering from the trauma of combat, incarcerated veterans turn to each other for the healing that is too often neglected by the state. The Veterans Healing Veterans program at San Quentin State Prison offers inmates the opportunity to seek solace in one another through narrative group therapy, meditation, and restorative yoga.
