Integral Transformative Justice

Fleet Maull, a leading voice in alternative approaches to incarceration and rehabilitation, has recently designed a new mindfulness-based, cognitive behavioral, and transformative approach to personal growth, education, life skills and leadership training for incarcerated juveniles and at-risk youth, called "A Path to Freedom."

He will present this new approach in a public lecture, "Integral Transformative Justice: A New Model for Corrections in the 21st Century," tomorrow, Friday Feb 15, 2008 at the Harvard Divinity School; and will conduct an experiential training in how to use the curriculum with incarcerated and at-risk youth populations, on Saturday.

Maull also founded the Prison Dharma Network (PND), which has provided books on meditation and contemplative spirituality to over 25,000 prisoners in over 900 prisons around the world. PDN is an international, nonsectarian, contemplative support network for prisoners, prison volunteers, and corrections professionals. PDN's mission is to provide prisoners, and those who work with them, with the most effective contemplative tools for self-transformation and rehabilitation.

PDN supports prisoners in the practice of contemplative disciplines, with an emphasis on sitting meditation practice and the practice and study of Buddhist teachings and other wisdom traditions. PDN provides integral transformative justice trainings for prison dharma volunteers and prison staff.
