Deep Sea Valkyries Retreat Applications Open Dec.1st!

Press Release General News Article Community

Deep Sea Valkyries summer 2022 retreat applications will be open 1DEC-31DEC 2021. 

Deep Sea Valkyries is dedicated to the mission of preventing Veteran suicide by reducing the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

and the treatment of other combat-related injuries, while assisting each Veteran in his/her transition from Service Member to Civilian.

Our retreats provide alternative forms of therapy to injured Veterans as a method to combat Veteran suicide and enhance lives

post-service. Our unique week-long intensive counseling retreats provide Veterans with more than 30 hours of group- and individual counseling

sessions, helping them to define trauma, identify and recognize it in their lives, and discover tools to manage its effects. For many, this is more counseling than they will receive in 6 months of traditional forms of treatment.

We couple these sessions with activities that transcend a Veteran’s injuries: swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving all have known

positive effects for the body, such as a reduction in overall stress, improved blood circulation, and increasing strength and endurance.

In addition to the mind and body, we know first-hand the powerful healing effects of a healthy soul. Daily devotions are led by a

military chaplain and focus on the moral injury of war. Through the study of historical military and religious figures, we parallel their

struggles within the lives of our Veterans to seek out and formulate new paths to recovery.

DSV provides week long intensive combat trauma counseling/scuba diving retreats. Open to all eras of service though combat deployments are a requirement of eligibility. Operations Red Wings will take place May 28-June 3, 2022. A second retreat is pending based on the volume of qualified applicants. 

Link will go live on Dec. 1st.
