INSIDE DHARMA is a non-profit outreach organization dedicated to offering teachings, support and encouragement to incarcerated and recently released individuals in a manner consistent with Buddhist principles. Inside Dharma also engages in special projects serving the homeless community, which includes many ex-offenders.
The organization sponsors SHINZO ZEN MEDITATION CENTER where ex-offenders may join with members of the St. Louis community to continue the meditation practices they learned in prison, and receive support in their efforts to re-enter society after incarceration. Both organizations operate from a former elementary school in University City. Join us for meditation and discussions every Thursday evening starting at 6:30 and from 11am - 1pm on Saturdays. On Monday evenings, two 30 minute meditation sessions are held beginning at 6:30. No dharma talk is held.
