Located in Sitria, Israel, Danny’s farm/ranch provides a safe and natural environment for healing. Through therapy with animals (over 50 horses), music, nature, yoga, and many other forms of healing, Danny’s Farm was designed to rehabilitate security forces veterans suffering from PTSD.
Danny’s Farm has become a very important strategic partner in Israel with Isreal Heart2Heart. Our Heart2Heart warriors and ambassadors gather there for full day group programs, as well as dropping in with family members to play music, ride horses or even to pet the bunnies. It is a very special place for healing.
The Journey at the Ranch program was designed to create an empowering, meaningful experience to help rehabilitate security forces veterans suffering from PTSD. The Journey is accompanied by top-of-the-line professionals offering much needed sensitivity, humility and simplicity. This program steps out the standard therapeutic frameworks in a unique 4-month process aiming to provide the group with various tools all the way to the finish line, where they will feel stronger, connected and confident as individuals and as a group.
