Prison Pen Pal Letter Writing

Insight on the Inside

Saturday Oct 24, 2014




Come join Against the Stream’s (ATS) Insight on the Inside group for a brief discussion on the prison system and a letter-writing event to prisoners on October 24th. The event will be held at the Melrose location and will be an afternoon of discussing and creating. We will have a plethora of supplies to decorate and write letters to send to prisoners seeking spiritual friends, and are seeking to build more of a community around the pen pals who are part of the program. All are welcome, whether you already are involved in the program or are interested in learning more and becoming a part of Insight on the Inside. Click HERE for more info on the program.

ATS receives many requests from prisoners who are seeking support in their dharma practice. Through the Insight on the Inside Project, ATS connects volunteer sangha members to be a “spiritual friend” to prisoners who have requested additional guidance and support in their paths of meditation, mindfulness, and/or other contemplative practices. Insight on the Inside is based on the tradition of Kalyana Mitta, a Pali term that means “spiritual friend.”

PLEASE RSVP to [email protected], so we know how many supplies to buy.
