Raider project 

relationship weekend

February 22nd-24th Raider Project Hosted it's VERY first Relationship Retreat on Topsail Island, NC with speakers: Dr. Jim Richards, Pastors Dennis and Denise Capra and Chief Morale Officer, Kirk Weisler. The objective of this retreat was to give combat veteran's the tools they need for successful family relationships.

Every day couples go to counselors, do all the right things, and take all the right steps, but their hearts are never changed. The emptiness is excruciating. The loneliness is devastating. You weren’t looking for a formula, you wanted real love. You really can feel the passion that you never thought possible. You can discover the godly secrets to intimacy. You can turn your relationship into Utopia.

Dr. Jim Richards


Each day consisted of back to back workshops and activities including yoga with instructor Ashley Kundrat. Individual and partner yoga took place in in the main room with the doors and windows open so everyone could listen to the waves crash as they refreshed and meditated each morning.

wHAT couples ARE SAYING:

"Seth and I had an amazing and unforgettable experience at The Raider Project Couples Retreat. We were excited and grateful for this amazing opportunity, but our expectations were far exceeded down to every detail including the accommodations, the speakers and the valuable lessons we learned over the weekend. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed by everyone and we felt completely comfortable during the entire weekend we were there. We enjoyed listening to the speakers and learning the most important tools that we can implement into our relationship. Needless to say, this weekend was a life changing experience that has definitely made a huge, positive impact on both of our lives. We are so thankful we were able to take part in this retreat and are extremely grateful for the opportunity to strengthen our relationship and apply the information we learned to our upcoming marriage.  Thank you again to everyone that made this possible for us!" -Stephanie Alday

My experience of this retreat comes from just that: my own story, the stories I’ve heard and accepted from others, the ones I’ve told myself over the years, I underwent brain surgery 3 months ago, and having a brain tumor removed felt like it released a host of toxic emotions that I could no longer hide from. It was like everything that I pushed down, put away in a box, and refused to talk about, was finally able to “get out.” For the first time in my life, I was forced to do nothing but sit and think, The beauty of this marriage retreat weekend was that the Raider Project pulled together a community of people into an environment where I didn’t feel ashamed of my stories. I found myself acknowledging feelings I had previously refused to think about. I found myself accepting past events. I found myself looking at my spouse and really seeing him. I found myself choosing to communicate with my husband and trust that my vulnerability will only help him understand me and love me more...

The word Post Traumatic Stress DISORDER is ridiculous. I understand the Post Traumatic Stress part but the DISORDER? Why? Does having PTS really mean you have a disorder. Maybe to a clinical psychologists who refer to the DSM IV to diagnose a certain mental health issue it can be a disorder. However, the word disorder used for veterans can cripple your mental stability.
