Review for The Freedom To Choose Project, Santa Barbara, CA, USA
This program is off the charts amazing! There is really no way to describe the experience of being there, in the prison, in one of the workshops! It is clear to me that I receive more than I give. Each time I go, I am humbled once again by being a part of this. I would say this workshop works, first of all, because everyone involved brings authentic caring to the table. The inmates know this, they can sense who is being real and who has an agenda. I am awed by the simplicity of the workshop, how it is set up and how it works. Doors open to change and transformation is available. Part of the great beauty to me is that there is no separation, no one is better-than, no one is trying to change or teach another. And change emerges, both for those living inside and those living outside. The facades begin to fall away, the possibility of lifting up and finding true freedom appears. I have watched the inmates take this opportunity and run with it again and again. I have learned so much from them. The Freedom to Choose Project is profound and simple. My participation as a volunteer has changed my life for the better. I have been discovering freedom inside myself along with all those who participate in this. Thank you Freedom to Choose!!!!
