Do you still offer meditation in the NH State Prison? And how would a prisoner there access this service? This is very important to someone currently there.

I don’t personally, but there are still classes going on there. Your inmate contact should check to see the Chapel schedule. I believe it’s still Thursday afternoons and Saturday mornings.

Thank you for these wonderful resources, I am starting my orientation tomorrow to teach meditation in penitentiaries in Canada. I am glad to have fallen on this page with all its great resources and information. Glad also that I found such a wonderful sangha that will help throughout my work with the inmates! May all beings be free from suffering!
