    ADC 2020 Virtual Summit Series: One Community

    In a fast‐changing world, ADC's mission remains the same – supporting the military and our military families. We can’t gather in D.C., but we can bring D.C. to you. Introducing the Summit Series, a new way to engage with defense leaders and network with ADC’s community: Five topics. Five weeks. One Community.

    On September 24, 3pm (EST), attend One Community, a townhall with DoD leadership. DOD is facing a confluence of crises and challenges it has not encountered in over a century. COVID‐19, renewed calls for racial equality, a critical need to invest in new technology, infrastructure, and weapons systems, and increasing pressures for quality schools, housing, and spouse employment opportunities, all occurring as our national defense strategy pivots to a new era of great power competition. It is clear that these challenges cannot be met by DOD alone, and that there is a key role for defense communities. Indeed, meeting these challenges will require a “one‐community” approach in which installations and communities must work together hand‐in‐hand. But what will this all mean for our nation’s defense infrastructure, both at home and abroad? How will installations and communities work together to ensure our nation remains strong?

    Register here for free (military, DoD and other Federal staff only).

    TRR's Azimuth Check: Sweat Lodge

    Attend TRR's Azimuth Check: Sweat Lodge on August 13, 7pm (EST). This webinar on Native American Sweat Lodge will be presented by Eric Mitchell, a member of the Dine’ Nation who has been conducting sweat lodge for 16 years.

    First Nations people have utilized the sweat lodge for thousands of years, as a way of both sending young warriors off to war, and then welcoming them back into society. Before battle, the ceremony and the sweat would serve as a purification for the warrior, and through prayer and song and medicines used during the ceremony, the warrior emerged protected, carrying forth with them all the medicine, and prayer and support from the community. 

    Register here.

    TRR's webinar series is primarily for veterans, veteran service providers and licensed medical and mental health professionals who work with veterans, as well as yoga teachers who are currently or want to work with veterans. Each webinar is an in-depth look at one of the modalities in the Warrior Camp® program. The series shows why the entire program is based on understanding of Military Moral Injury© (MMI) and how this guides TRR's philosophy of warrior care. They speak of MMI in order to differentiate combat-related Moral Injury from non-combat or civilian "moral injuries," and TRR sees it as separate and distinct from PTSD.
