MEDITATION AT FOLSOM PRISON

We as a society face many problems; one of them is crime, which affects every area of our lives. I have always been interested in understanding human behavior and what motivates a human being to behave in certain ways.

 

Anger, fear, greed, dysfunctional family patterns and economic problems are some of the leading factors behind a crime.

 

During my time as a volunteer with foster care and homeless children, I learned that most of them end up in prison unless they are fortunate enough to be positively guided during their early years.

 

We as individuals have a common responsibility to prevent crime in whatever form is more suitable in our lives. I felt motivated to volunteer within the prison system in order to deepen my understanding of human behavior and most importantly, to support these humans in their transformation process of recovery.

 

It is very inspiring and humbling to witness the transformation of these human beings who have a sincere commitment to rise above their limitations and circumstances internal and external, and find peace within themselves in the midst of very difficult situations.
