Life Circle: Prison Facilitator Program

Facilitated by: Rev. Dr. Andrea Travers

Cost: $595 (per level, both levels required)

The  CSL Prison Life Circle Program  is geared toward incarcerated men and women and their families. The program is designed to provide transformative spiritual tools and practices that create positive change in the lives of prisoners and their families. 

The Prison Life Circle curriculum brings understanding of the prison systems and culture for the facilitator, as well as practical applications of Science of Mind for inmates. This multi-week circle experience will assist participants in cultivating a spiritual life to create better relationships with those inside and outside prison walls. 

The intent of this program is to support imprisoned men and women to learn and apply spiritual principles and practices to disrupt the cycle of crime and incarceration, by promoting a principled and transformative process for all those called to participate. After completing both levels of the program, a CSL Prison Life Circle Facilitator will be qualified to lead the  CSL Prison Life Circles, within prison environments.
