EPP Founder, Susan Olesek, delivers a powerful TedX talk inviting us to do the work together.
“We cannot change what we cannot see. We must be willing to take a look at what is actually going on. On the inside. On the inside of jails and prisons. On the inside of family systems. And inside of ourselves.”
People incarcerated for every 100,000 Americans
Dollars per day to keep a person locked up
Billion dollars is spent on corrections
Percent of those released in 2004 were re-incarcerated within three years.
I’m proud to support this well crafted and determined outreach to the incarcerated. Susan Olesek and now the Enneagram Prison Project brings the spiritual quality of Truth in Action to this necessary and forward-looking Enneagram public-education program.
Validating the inherent worth of a person as absolutely true is nothing short of a transformative conversation — no matter on which side of the prison wall you happen to stand.
Rehabilitation happens from the inside out. With the Enneagram as a map, the incarcerated have a chance to see and understand the thought processes, emotional drives, and behaviors that drove them to incarceration. With the guidance of Enneagram Prison Project’s caring teachers and progressive curriculum, these men and women can begin to make different choices, transforming the often unconscious drives that contributed to their incarceration and ongoing struggles.
