Healing the Warrior's Heart
Healing the Warrior’s Heart examines the emotional trauma of war, known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), through the prism of Native American tradition and ceremony. Native Americans have long understood that helping warriors heal emotionally and spiritually is key to maintaining a healthy society. Within many tribal communities, tradition bearers continue to use ceremonies, prayers, and sacred objects to help returning warriors reintegrate into society, reconnect with the natural world, and cope with the guilt, shame, and fears they bring home with them.
