Prisoners with Amma

Prisoners with Amma

Quatre Camins is a prison near Barcelona where  volunteers working out of Barcelona have been running an outreach program involving Integrated Amma Meditation courses.

But meditation is not for everyone. That’s why 18 months ago, our volunteers started a garden at the prison called “Amma’s Garden” where the more action-oriented prisoners can learn to grow their own vegetables and enjoy being in nature.  A number of the prisoners also spend two Sundays a month engaged in service activities at the Amma Centre of Spain.

Finally, the prisoners are fundraising to help children with cancer. They raise money by making and selling bracelets and also by collecting bottle caps, which are sold to the recycling centre.
