Boulder Crest Retreat recognizes that facility and food costs are substantial to small non-profits. To that end, we are proud to offer the Retreat as a setting for organizations whose principles are aligned with ours and whose programs are innovative and effective. If you are interesting in hosting a retreat, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, with the subject line "Potential Program Partner."
Our current program partners include:
DAVID LYNCH FOUNDATION
The David Lynch Foundation (DLF) helps to prevent and eradicate the all-pervasive epidemic of trauma and toxic stress among at-risk populations through promoting widespread implementation of the evidence-based Transcendental Meditation (TM) program in order to improve their health, cognitive capabilities and performance in life.
The David Lynch Foundation has been a steadfast supporter of Boulder Crest Retreat's efforts to heal our nation's combat veterans, and PATHH represents the first veterans-focused retreat program that is licensed to deliver Transcendental Meditation to its participants. DLF has generously donated scholarships for all of Boulder Crest Retreat's Warrior PATHH programs for 2016.
TM for veterans
TM for Veterans, an initiative of the Maharishi Foundation USA, is dedicated to providing Transcendental Meditation to veterans and service members across the United States.
Transcendental Meditation® (TM®) is simple and effortless. Unlike other meditations that are difficult and a strain, TM allows the mind to settle down naturally to experience its most silent state that is full of healing energy and rest.
TM is practiced for about 20 minutes twice a day. During the practice, the mind effortlessly settles down to a more quiet and peaceful level, and the brain begins to function in a more relaxed, orderly, and focused way. At the same time, the body gains a deep level of rest, allowing it to release accumulated stress, strain, and fatigue. Over the past 40 years, more than 380 published research studies have documented the positive effects of the TM technique.
TM for Veterans is a committed and generous partner of Boulder Crest Retreat, and has generously provided scholarships for combat veterans attending our Warrior PATHH program.
SW:S uses songwriting as a catalyst for positive change. Participants are offered a unique way to tell their stories, rebuild trust, release pain and forge new bonds. In SW:S retreat and workshop settings, military members and/or families are paired with professional songwriters to craft songs about their experiences, often about combat and return home. Through their songs, participants rediscover their creativity and reconnect with each other. The songs are recorded and shared through CDs, concerts and social media in order to bridge the divide between military and civilian communities, and build awareness of the challenges faced by our returning service members.

The EOD Warrior Foundation (EODWF) serves the EOD community by providing financial assistance and support to active-duty and veteran wounded, injured or ill EOD warriors, families of our wounded and fallen EOD warriors and by maintaining the EOD Memorial.
The foundation offers four pillars of support - Emergency Financial Relief, Education, Hope and Wellness and EOD Memorial Care - and handles each request on a case-by case basis. The immediate and ongoing assistance and resources provided by the foundation to those in the EOD community are intended to provide support above and beyond the budgetary constraints of the Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
The foundation believes that the EOD family is for life. Our ongoing mission is to disarm the challenges of the EOD family by providing our support with compassion and caring to every individual we serve. See more at: http://www.eodwarriorfoundation.org/
