Zen Spokes presents

Zen Spokes presents

RSL Queensland is constantly seeking ways to support the veteran community, including those suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  In its capacity it provides support programs and financial assistance aided by the many branches and support organisations.

One such program of the Forest Lake & Districts RSL Sub-branch is the Assistance Dog Program for the benefit of veterans, first responders, and community members in need.

At the July General Meeting the club was introduced to another program, Trojan’s Trek Foundation by way of their representative, Zen Spokes, who discussed the support program they conduct. Their mission is to conduct and evaluate wilderness-based peer support interventions to assist service, ex-service, and first responders, adversely affected by their service experiences. During the trek, individuals will be acquainted with options required to adjust thinking, make better choices, adapt behaviours, and practice new skills which can be applied in the domestic situation.

Zen also proved to be accomplished didgeridoo artist and captured his audience with an enthralling rendition on the instrument after his presentation.
