Produced the film “The Dhamma Brothers”
The story of the Dhamma Brothers of Donaldson Correctional Facility continues to unfold today as the Vipassana program establishes deep roots and manifests a gradual change from within the prison walls.
The National Emotional Literacy Project for Prisoners, Lionheart’s first major and ongoing initiative, gives incarcerated men and women throughout the United States a mindfulness-based, research driven emotional literacy curriculum. The centerpiece of the program is the book Houses of Healing: A Prisoner’s Guide to Inner Power and Freedom (130,000 copies in circulation). The program is enthusiastically embraced by corrections professionals, prison volunteers, and prisoners alike.
