Prison SMART

Sri Sri began the Prison Program in 1990, to provide prisoners with an opportunity to reintegrate into the mainstream society, and heal themselves of their past trauma. The project also features programs for law enforcement officials.

The mission of Prison SMART is prisoner rehabilitation – to make a life-transforming difference in the lives of  people within the criminal justice system.  Prison SMART teaches skills for reducing stress, healing trauma, and providing practical knowledge of how to handle one’s emotions.  Programs have been offered to more than 200,000 participants worldwide.
