Tell us about yourself & your interest in prison dharma: (answer required) .
I have been involved in Buddhist studies continually for 36 years (Zen/Shin). I am also an aikido instructor/practioner with 26 years experience working with others, have been on Bearing Witness Retreats to Auschwitz (2001,2003,2005). I spent an entire winter season as a prisoner myself in the county jail in 2008-2009, and I feel I can understand the need for corresponding with and mentoring others. I have had a regular ongoing correspondence with one prisoner and as I have the time, would like to donate more of my time in mentoring others.
