THE PEPPER POD Inc. is a retreat centre for women veterans in the heart of Old Chelsea, Quebec, 15 minutes from Ottawa. It is committed to developing a strong network for women veterans, soon-to-be veterans, and spouses of military members as well as the RCMP.
THE PEPPER POD’s mission is rooted in the belief that women from the military and RCMP community all share a unique cultural experience that can be valuable when shared with other women who are transitioning out of the military or police force.
Sandra is a veteran, author of Out Standing in The Field, and the Lifeshops™ facilitator. She uses reflective training practices, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and mind-mapping techniques throughout her training.
This retreat helped me think differently, using positive language, and mind mapping. I have a new support system - an amazing female tribe that I was desperately craving. Visualization. This experience has been the most incredible enlightenment of my life. It came at a time when I needed it the most. I can't be more thankful for the experience. – L
