On November 14th, 2013 James R. was released from Northeast Correctional Center in Bowling Green and taken to the halfway house known as the St. Louis Community Release Center north of downtown. James learned about Buddhism while incarcerated. He received our bi-monthly newsletter and made several attempts to begin a meditation group while in prison. For various reasons this didn't happen, (it's more difficult than you would think) but he read books that we sent to the chapel library and practiced meditation as best he could in that environment.
Upon release he contacted us and was able take the Metrolink to University City in order to attend our Saturday meditation session and have lunch with a welcoming group of new friends.
