AZC Prison Program

There are two programs currently available through AZC for dharma outreach to those who are incarcerated:

The Prison BuddhaPal Program is open to anyone who would like to spend an hour a month writing to someone behind bars.

The Prison Teaching Program is for those with a well-established practice who would like to go behind bars, meet with prisoners and guide their practice in meditation, Buddhism, Buddhist psychology, yoga, or other dharma-related practices.

Spring

AJ Bunyard

Spring is one of our blessings—new beginnings, new life. But new life is a life not only of blossoms but of thorns and weeds. Life does not stay new; spring is inherently one part of a greater cycle of growing and dying. So we look deeper. What is spring when it neither comes nor goes?
