FREEDOM

INSIDE

A Course in Self-Inquiry

Give to Gangaji's Program that Serves Prisoners

This is an opportunity for you to directly support the men and women in our community who are living behind bars. Put Gangaji’s Freedom Inside: A Course in Self-Inquiry into the hands of prisoners as they face the harsh realities of living behind bars in these turbulent times.

Last week, an anonymous donor stepped forward with a matching gift of up to $25,000 for the Prison Program. Donate by September 7, 2020 and your gift will have twice the impact.

Your $20 donation will become $40, $100 becomes $200, and $500 becomes $1000. And every dollar will help make Freedom Inside available to someone who is serving time possibly while in lockdown or even solitary confinement.

“Choosing to donate to the Freedom Inside Program is my way of wishing that all people have true support in our darkest moments.” —Matching Donor

Why Give to Freedom Inside?

Right now, you can do something that will have an immediate impact in a prisoner’s life and in the world. While we cannot prevent the experience of pain in this life, we can prevent the experience of unnecessary suffering. We can step up and claim peace and freedom for all. We can stand in our commitment to love and our vision for peace.

I came into jail broken and at the end of my rope. I did not know how to move forward or if I even wanted to. You showed me how to STOP. By finally stopping, I saw the tenderness inside of me that I was always either running from or trying to protect.—CP, Wasco State Prison
