Inmate Transformation, Awareness, & Growth through Movement, Mindfulness, and Teachings of the Dharma.

"For the past year, three volunteers have been leading Buddhism, yoga and meditation classes for inmates at Goochland Women’s Correctional Facility outside of Richmond. WMRA’s Kara Lofton reports..."

PriZEN is a program created for women at the Va Department of Corrections in Goochland, Virginia. We offer Buddhism, Yoga, and Meditation classes to help bring clarity and awareness to each student, allowing an opportunity to heal and grow through the power of acute control of observing and listening to the mind. Along with meditation practice, various Buddhist teachings bring deeper understanding to how they can successfully regain their power, confidence, and happiness.

If you are interested in donating materials such as mala beads, blank journals, yoga mats, books or DVD’s on Buddhism, Yoga, or Meditation, or if you are a practitioner that would like to volunteer your time, please email us.
