"This looks to be greatttttt!I will try to attend this but my money is tight at the moment due to an upcoming move down south due to a new job....that is if/when I receive word back concerning whether or not my "heightened security…"
"Great article and thanks so much for posting it!! I have been doing lots and lots of solo hours since coming back to Humboldt County. We have the Zen Center here but I do Vippassana.
Anyhow...Thanks for the inspiration! (;o)"
Tell us about yourself & your interest in prison dharma: (answer required) .
I am currently attending Humboldt State University after coming here from the East Los Angeles/Downtown L.A. area. I am in the graduates program @ their school of social work and continue to learn an awful lot! I have a drug history and have been incarcerated within the L.A. County Jail system but thankfully did not do prison time before vowing to do everything within my power to discontinue my visits and pursue drug treatment...etc. I have been sitting Zazen on a daily basis for a little over a year now informally after receiving instruction at a local Zen Center and have recently become interested in pursuing a more formal practice if anybody out there has suggestions for me. I am also trying to figure out how I might incorporate mindfulness based practice into the rest of my study in order to ultimately make it a large part of my work with others. Again, if anyone has any suggestions about how I might want to pursue this then please write!
