Viet Nam Journey

We are proud to announce our seventh annual Viet Nam Healing and Reconciliation Journey this fall. Since 2000 Sanctuary has been leading healing journeys to Viet Nam. This year’s itinerary will bring us back to Viet Nam from October 21 to November 6, 2007.

When we Americans first went to war in Viet Nam we knew little of its heritage or of its people. Years later, after two and a half million had served and almost 60,000 had died there, we still had learned little about Viet Nam or the experiences of those who served. Veterans and non veterans alike are welcome on Sanctuary’s journey in which we will explore this ancient land as well as sites important to the war itself. Join us in our effort to learn the lessons of the war, discover the richness and beauty of Viet Nam and learn more about ourselves.

We will visit many of Viet Nam’s known sites, from Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) to the Mekong Delta and the Central Highlands, as well as numerous small villages and country sites. We will immerse ourselves in our own personal and American histories along with the Vietnamese culture itself. Every journey is led by Ed Tick, an expert healer and guide. He is assisted by Tran Dinh Song a South Vietnamese air force veteran and teacher of American language and culture. Ed and Song are committed to healing and reconciliation between our veterans and our cultures.

  • Round trip air fare between Los Angeles International Airport and Viet Nam, plus all airport taxes and fees
