Prison Practice


“I was in prison, and you visited me.”  (Matt 25:37)

Daishin leads meditation, Trauma Sensitive Yoga,  Buddhist practices as well as providing chaplaincy services to the men at Fort Dodge Prison once a month.  Inmates are some of the most marginalized members of our society and are desperately in need of contact with the outside world in a way that shows that someone cares about them.  You can offer your support to the men by helping to fund some of the needs at Fort Dodge Prison.

The men are currently in need of the following things:

Meditation Bell

Mediation Cushions

Zabutons (flat cushions for underneath the meditation cushions)

Buddha statue

Cost of mileage round trip for 136 miles per visit (approximately $70 per visit)

Email Daishin if you’d like to make an offering, or simply designate a donation to Fort Dodge Prison.
