Healing the Scars of War: A Guided Meditation Companion for OIF/OEF Veterans Using Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)
This audio set contains a series of 15 guided meditations that we developed as part of an effort to help veterans of the Iraq (OIF) and Afghanistan (OEF) wars more fully engage their lives upon returning home. The meditations are based, in large part, on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and are designed to teach skills to help veterans learn to be let go of painful thoughts and feelings, show up to their lives, and reconnect with what matters to them.
We recommend starting each day with a simple centering exercise, and then working through the remaining guided meditations in sequence. Practice the exercises in a quiet place first, and then work to apply the skills in your daily life.
