Liberating unmourned loss/hurt and unforgiven guilt/shame

St. Petersburg, FL: Fallen Comrade Ceremony

October 28, 2020


Crystal Bay Hotel located at: 7401 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, FL 33710

  • Have you served in a dangerous-duty Military assignment that caused your soul to be bruised or wounded? 
  • Do you suffer from guilt or shame over things you think you should or should not have done? 
  • Are you the family member of a Veteran who has experienced SOUL INJURY?
  • Are you a civilian or citizen who wants to help our nation heal from the aftermath of war and violence?
  • Are you a clinician who wants to assess and respond to SOUL INJURIES?

It is not too late to heal the wounds of war!

Unmourned loss from fallen comrades and unforgiven guilt and shame is a gaping hole in our society that can subtly and not-so-subtly rob Veterans of their vitality. Family members of Veterans are also affected; their wounds, too, often go unnoticed and untended. Complicating matters further is the gap in healthcare that fails to identify and intervene with SOUL INJURIES. Furthermore, civilians and citizens may not recognize how they can support the reintegration of Veterans back into society.

A ceremony has now been developed for Veterans and their families, healthcare providers, civilians and citizens to help Veterans and their families lay their burdens down. Unmourned losses and unforgiven guilt can find safe sanctuary so there can be peace…at last.

Please join us on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at 8:30 AM for a Fallen Comrade Ceremony at the Crystal Bay Hotel located at 7401 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, FL 33710. Admission is free and open to the public.

The Fallen Comrade Ceremony is designed for Veterans and First Responders, their families and civilians to help them lay their burdens down. The Ceremony honors survivors who carry the burden of their comrades’ memory. Based on Native-American warrior welcoming-home rituals, the Ceremony restores hope for healing the Soul Injury® that Veterans and First Responders who serve in dangerous-duty assignments often carry.

While Memorial Day honors those who died in military service, the Fallen Comrade Ceremony honors those who survived and carry the burden of their fallen comrades’ memory. Safe sanctuary is provided for them to mourn the losses they have sustained, such as: comrades who died in battle, loss of physical/ mental health, loss of the self they had prior to the trauma, assault that occurred within their own ranks, or an unfair administrative action taken against them.
