This is not a program that's going to judge you, nor is it going to tell you what you should or are supposed to do. Instead, it offers simple yet effective ways for you to discover the inner freedom that's possible regardless of what your circumstance or situation might be. It doesn't matter who you are or what you may have done, unconditional freedom is yours for the having. So, are you willing to take this opportunity and discover new possibilities you never thought possible before? Inner freedom is yours.

The program invites us to learn more about ourselves, and it gives us useful tools. Some come naturally to me, some not—I have to do yoga daily because my aging body hurts if I don’t, but meditation I confess to doing irregularly. However, every time I return to sit, I’m glad I did. Not because I’m “good at it,” but because it settles me down.

Each lesson brought me back to that soulful state where a meditative state of mind was required to divulge, and with each disclosure I learned things about self that I lived with most of my adult life but never took notice to, or of. I had already began my journey of change long before I started to dive into the Art of Soulmaking course, however, the course itself solidified my willingness to evolve into a better quality person, and gave me the confidence from the strength I found from connecting with my inner self, and Soul.

I was struggling to sleep late May early June but since I began my yoga, writing, and meditating I have been sleeping very good. I have also been more social, connection with family, friends, and the inmates. I am in a new housing unit than where I was during my first week. My transition has gone really well and I am enjoying my new routine and environment. I am grateful for this program. Thank you for this opportunity. God Bless.

I first came across UFP Art of Soulmaking program on the Edovo tablet while I am incarcerated at Montana State Prison. My daughter Lena passed away the same date I was arrested and I have been going through some depressing times and this program had helped me keep my attitude positive and has given me strength knowing I can go through any situation and still be positive and that no matter where I’m at or what I’m doing, Life is awesome also. Thank you for the pen pal program and all who are positive.
