The Anderson-Arroyo Foundation

MISSION STATEMENT

The Anderson-Arroyo Foundation is committed to healing trauma; the trauma suffered by individuals, as well as the earth-based trauma of abused landscapes and other-than-human species. Through land regeneration projects and collaborative wilderness retreat programs, our goal is to help heal the earth and its inhabitants, side by side, hand in hand.

Our goal is to provide Spiritual Retreats for Veterans, first responders, and other trauma survivors on their journey through PTSD and Moral Injury.* 

*Statistics are showing that Moral Injury, more so than PTSD, is what leads to suicide among Veterans.  Moral Injury is not a psychological injury or a diagnosis, it is a spiritual injury and a natural response to trauma.  Moral Injury creates a rift in our soul as we are torn apart from being witness to or participating in something that goes against the moral fiber of our being.  It is a rift that also separates individuals from family, community and even god.  Spiritual Direction can aid in the healing of Moral Injury and is a much-needed component in addition to psychological assistance for PTSD.  Group and individual retreats will be offered for veterans and others who desire spiritual guidance.
