The Prison Mindfulness and Engaged Mindfulness Institute's (PMI-EMI), deliver trainings developed from a rich tradition of spiritually grounded, contemplative and mindfulness-based peace and social change work, as well as the latest developments in neuroscience-based leadership training.
The Institute's specializes in training professionals and volunteers who support individuals in at-risk situations and communities that have been marginalized and underserved. Mindfulness is foundational to all of our training. PMI-EMI developed and offers several mindfulness-based models for intervention: Mindfulness-Based Emotional Intelligence (MBEI)™ training, Mindfulness-Based Wellness & Resiliency (MBWR)™ training, and our Mindfulness Teacher Training.
Prison Mindfulness Institute's (Prison Dharma Network) mission is to provide prisoners, prison staff and prison volunteers, with the most effective, evidence-based tools for rehabilitation, self-transformation, and personal & professional development. In particular, we provide and promote the use of proven effective mindfulness-based interventions (MBI’s). Our dual focus is on transforming individual lives as well as transforming the corrections system as a whole in order to mitigate its extremely destructive impact on families, communities and the overall social capital of our society.
Connect with peers and make new connections with people working in the Mindfulness, Transformative Justice and Social change fields. Share resources, tips and collaborate on ideas and best practices. Join us for weekly Zoom calls, trainings and retreats (all announced here).
To all of our thousands of kind and generous community members and supporters who have supported our work for over 20 years.
You are awesome!
