MZMC Dharma Prison Project

The MZMC Dharma Prison Project supports sangha members who currently volunteer in the Minnesota state correctional system working with adult offenders. Volunteers offer meditation instruction, help to facilitate group discussions, and introduce traditional Buddhist subjects like the Heart Sutra and metta practice. Volunteers and offenders also have explored Buddhists texts including The Dhammapada, Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind and Tim Burket's recently released book Nothing Holy About It.

Our mission is to help people experience a deep and quiet joy – a joy that arises whenever we are fully engaged in the work or play of this moment.
