Description

Insight on the Inside is a community based organization committed to teaching mindfulness to the most vulnerable community members. Their mission is to teach participants the importance of mindfulness, meditation and other contemplative strategies as a means to process systemic racism and oppression. Most of those who participate in the program are currently or formerly incarcerated, those experiencing chronic homelessness, and those returning to the community after time in treatment centers. Staff at Insight on the Inside believe that cognitive training increases the ability to observe and to control reactions, two characteristics which are fundamental to promoting permanent change in the community. Their hope is that meditation and mindfulness practices can help address mass incarceration and dismantle oppressive practices by empowering participants to become more capable of recognizing systemic oppression. For more information about the specific practices of the organization, individuals are encouraged to contact Insight on the Inside directly.
