Labyrinths and Prisons: Focus on the TLS DVD Labyrinths For Our Time

This issue of TLS eNews continues to explore the impact labyrinths have in modern life, highlighting "Labyrinths in Prisons," (Spanish sub-titled version here) from The Labyrinth Society’s DVD, Labyrinths For Our Time.

Prison labyrinth ministries serve all populations: women, men and youths. In most cases they are an integral part of inmate therapy programs. It takes a certain kind of labyrinth enthusiast to go through the sometimes arduous process of becoming a prison labyrinth facilitator, especially in state and federal facilities, but the benefits to both the inmates and the volunteers are numerous. 

The full video is available for purchase in English now, and in Spanish translation shortly. The TLS website has resources for labyrinths in prisons, and our impact has been considerable. Lives are changed, as shown in this related Chicago Tribune article and this in-depth look at a prison garden labyrinth ministry. Help spread the good news of this peace-making tool to populations who really need some.
