Writing & Poetry Therapy


 

Editor's Note from Debbie Allen: Susan Kaiser Greenland, author of "The Mindful Child", has designed a way to bring mindfulness techniques to children which improves their capacity to focus, calm themselves, and manage stress. She explains a simple way of explaining mindfulness to children, "Mindfulness is paying attention with kindness, to yourself, other people, and the world around you." She takes seven concepts of mindfulness and applies them to the ABC's of attention, balance and compassion. Stopping, focusing, and choosing fall under attention categories. Quieting and seeing go with balance. Caring and connection go with compassion.

“Orange is the New Black” is a popular Netflix series that’s the focus of a lot of online discussion these days. In it, we see many realistic (and unrealistic) portrayals of what life is like in an upstate New York penitentiary...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Organic gardening is giving prisoners a chance to live again. It is indisputable how a relationship with the gardening from seed to harvest touches a person's soul. This New York Prison system program gives inmates a chance to utilize their time to not only garden, but they also can apply their experience to earning a college degree.
