Special Event: Compassion in Action, a Fundraiser for the Mindfulness in the Jail program
Denise Ackert, coordinator for the Mindfulness in the Jail Program (MIJ), will be offering a talk, Compassion in Action, which explores the value of offering mindfulness and meditation tools to those incarcerated in our communities. The MIJ program provides a Mindfulness-Based Emotional Intelligence approach to rehabilitation and transformation for inmates at Chaffee County Detention Facility to help inmates develop self-awareness, self-regulation, social awareness and compassion. This year, we are reaching out to the larger community to ask for your support of this important program.
Please join us for this fundraiser and to hear about our work.
