October Charity Spotlight: Heroes and Horses
October is a month of transitions. Leaves change their colors, temperatures drop, and a sense of renewal fills the air. At NRG Realty Group, we believe in channeling this energy into something meaningful, and that’s why we’ve chosen Heroes and Horses as our charity spotlight for this October.
Heroes and Horses: Un-Programming the Programmed
Heroes and Horses is an organization on a mission to un-program the programmed. They’re dedicated to providing combat veterans with an alternative solution for addressing their physical and mental scars. What sets them apart is their commitment to holistic healing, eschewing prescription medications and traditional psychotherapy in favor of a transformative approach that empowers veterans to take control of their lives once more.
A 360-Degree Whole Human Approach
Heroes and Horses understands that true healing involves more than just addressing the physical or mental aspects of an individual. It’s about recognizing the symbiotic relationship between the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of a human being. By considering all of these aspects, they create the space for veterans to heal comprehensively.
The Tools for Transformation
Over a 41-day program, Heroes and Horses utilizes a multifaceted approach to healing:
- Whole-Food Eating: Nutrition plays a fundamental role in physical and mental well-being. By emphasizing whole-food eating, they provide veterans with the nourishment they need to thrive.
- Mindset, Breathing Techniques, and Meditation: These practices help combat veterans manage stress, anxiety, and trauma, fostering mental and emotional resilience.
- Remote Wilderness and Wild Horses: The program incorporates the healing power of nature and the symbolism of wild horses. The wilderness offers a serene setting for self-reflection, while the wild horses serve as a metaphor for overcoming challenges and building trust.
Breaking the Cycle
One of the most significant aspects of Heroes and Horses’ mission is to break the addiction cycle that often plagues veterans. They empower veterans to take ownership of their lives and decisions, shifting the narrative from seeking external solutions to discovering the strengths they already possess.
