Ben King, Armor Down – Working with Veterans with Meditation and Yoga

Ben returned from Iraq in 2007. For six months he was flying high. Then the euphoria of returning home wore off and he was left with sleepless nights and a surprising amount of stress and physical discomfort. He spent the next 2 years worth of trial and error trying to figure out how to use mindfulness and exercise to calm his mind and realign his body for a civilian lifestyle. The Army taught him how to up armor his mind and body for War. He taught himself how to Armor Down.
