Healing of Memories Workshop for Women Veterans

The Healing of Memories workshop is a safe place for participants to explore personal histories and gain insight and empathy for themselves and others.

Spirit in the Desert and the Institute for Healing of Memories began workshops for women veterans only in 2017. Why? To answer a “call” from so many women in the military who have been subjected to Military Sexual Trauma (MST). The statistics on this kind of trauma are astounding and heart-wrenching; the fact is that it happens not just in combat overseas and far from home, it is also right here on our military bases, and it affects women of all ages, all ethnicities, and all ranks.

About the Retreat Leader

Lori Rubenstein, JD, PCC is a lead facilitator with the Institute for Healing of Memories-North America which offers workshops for people who have experienced or witnessed trauma. As an attorney, Lori found herself immersed in the legal system fighting a never ending battle of emotional pain and relationship retaliation. Today, as a mediator, author and coach, she now focuses on helping people heal from their relationship wounds through forgiveness, the cornerstone of all healing.

Lori continues to walk with people on their healing journey through her work with Healing of Memories. She works with veterans and their spouses to find peace with their past, so they can step into a more fulfilling, joyful life. The workshop provides a sacred space for people to heal and mend their past as they transcend their own “stories.” It offers participants a step toward inner peace which starts with self-love, acceptance, non-judgment and self-compassion.
