impact & testimonials
"You made our passion and dreams a reality!"
" We at the Allied Charitable Foundation want to thank Paul Puzanoski and his amazing team at Creation Republic for making our passion and dreams a reality! The Allied Charitable Foundation is a registered non-profit society dedicated to providing an offering of healing through hosting retreats for Veterans and First Responders suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. When we began this journey, we truly did not know how we were going to achieve our goal of helping as many people dealing with PTSD as we can.
When Paul and his team came on board amazing results were seen in record time. Online invitation systems were generated, spread sheets and databases were created and populated with data that provided a very professional package to our clients. The team at CR worked tirelessly and brought with them connections to a plethora of amazing human beings that dedicate their lives to helping other people heal. In May, 2019 the Allied Charitable Foundation was able to host our inaugural healing retreat on Quadra Island, BC. As a result of Paul’s work, some amazing healing was able to happen for several participants.
The bottom line is that without the incredible work of Paul and his team we would never have been able to provide such a complete, professional and powerful experience for our participants! The results from our first retreat were so successful that we have engaged the services of CR, multiple times! We look forward to a long and rewarding relationship as we continue to host retreats and give a little back to those that have sacrificed so much! Thank you CR!!!"

"WUB was a weekend I will not forget"
WUB was a weekend I will not forget. Not only does the staff consider all travel, dining and lodging logistics they also plan for the aesthetics of the workshop rooms. The views from the mediation rooms were stunning! The itinerary included the perfect amount of a variety to be interesting, but not overwhelming. Plus, the event was wisely planned with repeating sessions so attendees could take full advantage of almost all of the classes. Personally, I struggle with stress and I got some practical tools from several of the teachers and speakers. Most importantly, the positive energy and openness within this group of outstanding humans made me feel instantly welcome and comfortable. Everyone was mingling and enjoying the experience and I attribute this to the kind and loving nature of the leader of WUB, Paul. Thank you and I look forward to your events in the near future. "

"As a paramedic newly diagnosed with PTSD...
the treatment and healing options were overwhelming. I was invited to the inaugural retreat on Quadra Island for veterans and first responders, it was perfect timing. A small group of passionate, caring, and knowledgeable leaders guided workshops in healing drums, meditation, breath work, and yoga. There was so much camaraderie and trust that developed between the participants. It was a safe space to be vulnerable and to let others hear your story. It also gave me a good opportunity to listen to other people who were in similar situations to me. There is something profound when you realize that you are not alone. The organizers were professional and well versed in healing retreats. I do not hesitate to recommend this type of retreat put on by this incredible team. First responders and veterans, with PTSD or not, would greatly benefit from a weekend of this nature."
Trevor Beckley Guest | Allied Foundation Healing Retreat, Quadra Island
“Paul and the team went above and beyond”
I did not know what to expect going into this summit, and I was blown away. Being a natural "sceptic" I never experienced this kind of thing, so I went in with an open mind. I have never been so overwhelmed with emotion from a single event. Paul and the WUB team went above and beyond bringing the best in the field together for an incredible weekend of healing, community, and wellness. 10/10 would recommend to wellness enthusiasts and "normal folk" alike. What a cool experience!
