Inner Refuge, in Prison and Out

Jennifer Toon PortraitIn the next Freedom Inside newsletter, we are sharing this beautiful article written by Jennifer Toon: I was in prison for two decades – here’s what I learned about isolation. It was recently published in the Guardian.

As an ex-prisoner, she offers her powerful insights on discovering the “inner refuge” both in prison and in the midst of Coronavirus. It has always been true, but especially in this time, prisoners can offer us their insights and wisdom from a very different lived experience.

Gangaji’s course for prisoners, Freedom Inside,  now has over 350 participants and we continue to reach out to include more. We know Coronavirus is especially difficult for those living behind bars. We hope to share more of their realizations and insights.
