Prison Outreach is an on-going, integral part of the Contemplative Outreach family. This important ministry is committed to support volunteers and organizations willing to serve the prison population.
Support consists of consultation, resources and access to a central database of all prison ministry activities nationwide involving Centering Prayer. We hope to encourage and assist those interested in beginning a prison ministry or to provide connections between practitioners already in the ministry who want to share and learn together.

We provide meditation instruction through correspondence and in person to prisoners throughout the United States. Meditation is taught and practiced as a spiritual discipline, depending on the needs of the inmates requesting our services. It is taught as a means of deepening one’s understanding of any spiritual path he or she chooses to walk, or as a secular path to increase understanding of one’s emotional patterns. Many inmates fear the mental states which resulted in their present circumstances, and they are extremely appreciative of tools that allow them to tame their minds and increase stability and tranquility in prison.
We write to prisoners nationwide – we have volunteers visiting 5 or 6 prisons in Colorado, and have visited 5 or 6 in Florida
The SPC supports the meditation practice of prisoners by providing qualified volunteers (meditation instructors) to visit prisoners and prison groups in a ministerial capacity, meditation instructors who correspond with interested prisoners, meditation cushions,
books, tapes and other practice materials, and support for forming and ongoing prison dharma groups.
