Compassion Project in prisons in California

4th May 2020
Many people in the past weeks have shared this link widely and I add my voice to it also. Deeply moving. We are born with such innocence and to have a chance to soften and open again into that space of innocence, with no shame, with compassion, is profoundly healing. This “compassion Project” initiative that is specifically aimed at bringing compassion as an approach to healing trauma in Californian prisons is deeply inspiring. So often those caught up in the prison system experienced early childhood trauma and poverty, often little or no healthy bonding and belonging, resulting in their behaviour being violent. Watching this short clip I was reminded once again, kindness and love does matter, it does create healing spaces.
