* Current data from an ongoing study conducted as a part of the Art of Soulmaking program. So far, the study has assessed over 65 incarcerated respondents on measurements that change lives for the better.

Join the Art of Soulmaking program

The Art of Soulmaking (AOS) workbook teaches contemplative practices, along with meditation and yoga. The workbook is a guide on how to use one’s existing circumstances and life experiences as a means to discover their unique genius and purpose. Every incarcerated student or Soulmaker is paired with a volunteer like you to correspond by mail as you each journey through the book and exercises. The soulmaker and volunteer mutually benefit and nourish from the exchange.

A Volunteer Opportunity to Enrich Lives

Soulmaker + Volunteer Correspondence

As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to use our fully digital letter writing system to safely send and receive Art of Soulmaking correspondences and help a population in need change their lives while changing yours. Hand-writing, envelopes, and stamps not necessary.

“I found a compassion in myself that I didn’t even realize was missing.  A compassion for my penpal, but also for myself.  I think before I had more of a sense of pity than care.  Now I feel a real human to human connection that I didn’t think was possible.  None of my penpals talk as if they are suffering.  They are all simply trying to find peace with where they are at, just like me.  It seems the program is guiding us both to do just that.”

“I find that I think about my Soulmaker a lot, as I would any friend.  The journey she is on is amazing, and her letters bring me joy, like a good conversation.”
