Save A Warrior™ (SAW) teaches veterans, first responders, and anyone interested in learning how to meditate and/or train others to meditate. Meditation is proven to reverse the effects of posttraumatic stress, trauma and re-wire the brain. Just as lifting weights strengthens muscles, meditation strengthens the parts of the brain that support clarity, focus and calm. In a matter of weeks, meditation can begin to heal the amygdala (the stress center) while increasing activity in the prefrontal cortex (the control center), supporting our ability to control our emotions. Studies have shown that meditation increases activity in the left prefrontal cortex (which is more active when we're happy) and lowers activity in the right prefrontal cortex, meaning the long-term effects of meditation bring happiness!

Major Brad Gallup, USMC, USAF (Ret.)Brad's passion as a Transformative Coach is guiding folks to look toward a new direction that transforms their lives. He combines his understanding of grief with his training as an Equine Guided Coach and Educator, bringing horses into the conversation to accelerate deep powerful insights for change. Brad served his country for 21 years, both as an enlisted Marine and as an Air Force Officer, retiring with the rank of Major. His own healing journey started 27 years ago after returning from Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm. In severe emotional pain, he wanted to end his life. Through processing his grief, Brad discovered the capacity to be supportive, empathetic, and present for others who were suffering over life losses; and to guide them to transforming their lives. Since then he has been on staff with the following non-profits; Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors as a grief facilitator, the Men’s Leadership Alliance as a leadership coach, and Save A Warrior as an equine specialist, lead facilitator, coach, and elder.
