  • “You give us hope that maybe we aren’t just killers after all.”

    Juan, Vietnam Veteran
  • “This [Yoga Nidra Meditation] is the piece that was missing from the PTSD program.It fits with everything else they teach us, but it also teaches us a way to find our own peace without drugs or counseling that we can use once we get out of the program. It is the one thing I know I’m going to keep doing when I leave.”

    Martin, Vietnam Veteran
  • “Sometimes when I meditate, flashbacks come to me of helicopters circling and the time we accidentally killed a woman and her little son. Normally, this would have sent me into a breakdown. Now, I am learning to observe the experience, learn the lessons from it. Meditation helps me find the part of my soul that is still peaceful.”

    Rick, Enduring Freedom Veteran
  • “Before we started, I thought that yoga was against my beliefs as a Christian. Now I see that it is completely in line with my beliefs and deepens my understanding of my own faith. I realized too that I was prejudiced against others before this. I guess I didn’t think that Jews or Muslims had a spirit. But there is a Jewish guy in the class and we talk all the time about how we feel in meditation. We feel the same thing. And I realize that we’ve got the same spirit.”

    Tony, Enduring Freedom Veteran
  • “When I get out [of the Residential PTSD program], I told mywife we are going to meditate together. She was in shock. She said, ‘YOU are MEDITATING, Tommy? If you keep shocking melike this, you’re going to give me a heart attack.’ But she was happy. I told her that it is the first thing since ‘Nam that made me feel like I had peace. I told her that I really believe I found a way to be peaceful and that I am going to be a better husband.I am going to make up for all of the years that I was awful to her. I am going to finally teach her something that brings her peace instead of misery.”

    Tommy, Vietnam Veteran
  • Medical Benefit Comments: “Every week after meditation, the pain in my hip and leg goes away entirely. It lasts for several hours afterwards, but then starts creeping back again.” When it was suggested that he do a meditation when the pain starts creeping back, he tried this and responded, “I notice that when I do the meditation when the pain starts coming back, it is like taking a muscle relaxant or a pain pill. I do the meditation techniques instead of popping the pill as much as possible. The longer I meditate, the longer the pain relief lasts.Plus, I feel better mentally too.”

    Mike, Vietnam Veteran
  • “I hadn’t slept more than two hours in a row since Vietnam. What is this now...35 or 40 years of no sleep? Since the very first week I started using your meditation CD, I sleep through the entire night, at least 6 hours. I feel like an entirely different person. The other thing that happened is that I got to go off my blood pressure medication. My blood pressure went down from 180 over 110 to 120 over 90. I’m telling every guy I know about meditation. I think I eat better too – like I feel so good that I don’t want to eat junk food anymore.”
