FREE Workshop for Veterans, Current Service Members, and Families
Sponsored by Help The Veterans (helptheveterans.org)

The Power Breath Meditation Workshop is a mind-body program that emphasizes techniques to build resiliency. It offers practical breath based tools that decrease stress, anxiety, anger, and sleep problems resulting in improved overall wellbeing.

Here’s what some participants say about the Workshop…

“Beautifully taught and life-changing. Offers life-long tools enabling you to face any crisis, hardships or challenge. Lucky me for having the privilege of participating.”

“I am a Vietnam Combat Vet. I highly recommend the Power Breath Workshop to all vets. The course is effective for dealing with combat civilian life stressors. You learn through breathing practices to slow down, get in touch with yourself and gain a measure of inner peace.”

“I am calmer, less anxious, more centered and able to interact less reactively with intimates. I am feeling more spiritually connected to others and to a higher Power. Remarkable that attention to the breath can be the royal road to a greater sense of well-being and interpersonal harmony.”

Chimes is working with TRICARE military insurance to implement an Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program for military families with children who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Military families are often faced with the burden of relocation, which can disrupt a child’s routine. For a child diagnosed with ASD, having a consistent and structured environment is crucial in helping him/her to grow and manage him/her behaviors. Chimes’ goal is to provide a community-based or in-home ABA service for families so they learn and continue treatment in order to create a stable environment, regardless of relocation disruptions. Our ABA services are free to qualifying children of military families with TRICARE insurance.

The program is led by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) who will be responsible for the supervision of Registered Behavior Technicians, whose responsibilities will include working with child-in-need services, and training for the family/caregiver.

The TRICARE Autism Program will be directed by Marc Fields, a BCBA who has a master’s degree in psychology. Marc has 10 years of experience as a behavior analyst working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and utilizing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to initiate positive behavioral changes. The ABA program services provided will include direct treatment, data collection, data analysis, behavioral assessments, family/caregiver
training, and behavior progress reports.
