Silouan Green graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1991 and then accepted a commission in the United States Marine Corps. While serving in the Marines, Silouan was involved in a jet training accident. In the ejection, Silouan's back was broken and his co-pilot tragically killed.
This horrible event and the complications that followed left Silouan a shell of a man and he descended into the hell of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD. His life in pieces, he was disability discharged and then hit the road on the back of a motorcycle for two years to look for a new beginning.
Since that journey began, Silouan has published an internationally distributed outdoors magazine, Bearfoot Magazine- Journal of Northern California Outdoors, started a successful advertising and marketing business, Silouan Green, LLC, but more importantly, has developed The Ladder UPP recovery program for PTSD and victims of trauma. The Ladder UPP takes one through the process of Silouan's recovery as a means to encourage engagement and provide simple, practical steps to beginning the journey of recovery and living free, fully alive.
