Healing in Prison
The aim of this course is to provide men, women and youth who are incarcerated with a holistic approach towards self awareness through creative writing, meditation, yoga and group discussion. Qualitative research maintains that each of these components helps reduce depression and impulsive behaviors while increasing resilience to stressors.
It is expected that participants will gain tools to self regulate their nervous system through mindful movement and meditation, improve writing and public speaking skills, and offer each other insight and support during their incarceration, therefore fostering a safer environment.
