By the end of July a dedicated cadre of 8 Freedom Project volunteers will complete the Path of Freedom online training, as a first step in qualifying themselves as certified mindfulness facilitators. The next series, scheduled September 8-October 10, 2104, is filling up fast; already 10 Freedom Project volunteers have registered.
The Path of Freedom curriculum is designed for at-risk and incarcerated youth, as well as adult prisoners and was published by the Prison Mindfulness Institute. Fleet Maul, a former prisoner himself, is the founder of the Prison Mindfulness Institute and co-author of the curriculum, which was developed in collaboration with author and mindfulness practitioner Kate Crisp.
The online training program includes several video lectures and quizzes, video web conferences to discuss material covered in the classes, an online discussion forum, and supplementary print resources. A student handbook is available at an additional cost of $19.95.
The course itself is usually priced at $200 per person . Thanks to the generosity of the Prison Mindfulness Institute, Freedom Project has been able to make this online training available to each of our volunteers at the group discounted rate of $75.
