WLO® Corps Sessions
Warriors Live On introduces somatic healing to veterans through the “WLO Corp Sessions” offered at Warriors Live On. Organic Intelligence is a psychobiological approach based on complex systems theory and was developed by Steve Hoskinson, MA, MAT. From a systems perspective, the OI clinical protocol suggests that what’s wrong with therapy is the focus on what’s wrong, including the focus on “trauma.” OI teaches how healing happens from the nervous system up and makes it possible to imagine freedom from suffering. In the somatic world of healing full biological coherence is possible. Organic Intelligence assist veterans in achieving body, mind, heart and spirit coherence, where all systems are working in alignment, as a team and in unison with each other.
“Veterans who participate in these sessions open themselves to the opportunities to learn more for themselves and gain the opportunity to help the next veteran”. This newfound sense of purpose is something everyone needs, but especially our veterans who have fully embodied what it is to serve. The chance to serve another veteran establishes newfound energy, hope and reason to live.”
Veterans who participate in the OI Korps Sessions gain the opportunity to train with our partners at Organic Intelligence. Steve Hoskinson is passionate about getting OI to our veterans and has awarded scholarships to WLO for veterans to embark on the Organic Intelligence journey. This training is a 3 year long training that gives a Veteran the opportunity to learn and teach others. Learn more at: Get OI

That WLO veterans gain exposure to treatments that do not incite more trauma but work with the nervous system where it is. Veterans do not need to be exposed to their trauma in order to heal it; this is not how our bodies work. We address the root cause which resides in the nervous system of the body, and work the system into a space that it can release. Trauma can be worked out of the body and we can have a memory without feeling that the body is experiencing the trauma again.
Through mindfulness, orientation to the present, noticing what the system enjoys and being able to feel positive sensation is where we begin. Our bodies have all they need to heal and OI lights up those systems within, gets in the root and changes the person from the system up.
Through physical, biological, mental and emotional balance, WLO aims to help each veteran eventually eradicate the use of overly prescribed medications, reduce or eliminate predominate symptoms of PTSD, and drastically decrease anxiety and depression. Social engagement, health in the family and relationships that surround the veteran is a premiere measure of seeing a veteran thrive.
