I became aware that these places of devastation existed here in So Flo -- in abundance. By and by some persons I liked were getting long sentences. I had no choice.
Up to several years ago I did free Yoga and Meditation classes in the libraries of Miami-Dade. I jsimply switched it over to the prisons.
The first class I did was in what lookked like a concentration camp. They put me in a bare, freezing room in the middle of a semi-circle of "hardened convicts" -- just staring at me to see what this fool was going to try to lay on them.
After a powerful meditation which completely changed the vibe and a lot of intense yoga on the hard cold floor and a lot of jokes, they all became to me: HUMAN BEINGS, brothers!
It took constant maneuvering and strategy to get to where we are now -- in 7 facilities with seekly classes for men, women, juveniles, mental health inmates and boot camp cadets.
We are like a life saver thrown out to the crew of a sinking ship in high seas.
At first I paid no attention to the $ side of it. Until gas, car maintenance, printing costs, etc came into view. "Gasoline" sounds really boring, but without it these classes would grind to a halt.
