Recidivism rates in Maine are a staggering 78%. The Liberation Institute seeks to address this problem by offering inmates a yoga teacher training, recovery workshop, and educational curriculum at the Maine State Prison. We graduated Our first cohort on October 24, 2017. Again and again, the Warden and prison staff have commented on the positive impact yoga has made on our students’ stress level, outlook, and interpersonal skills.
Most of the 2.5 million people incarcerated in the United States will one day be released. In addition to housing and employment, these men and women need to be embraced by a supportive and welcoming community. We hope that the Liberation Institute can provide such fellowship. Our recent graduates are, in many respects, unrecognizable from the men we first met Two years ago. We ran on a volunteer basis our first year. Now we are looking to raise funds to develop our program and begin to lay the groundwork for a robust array of re-entry services.
