The Power of Compassion: Bringing Healing to our Prison System
Last September I had posted an article I had written about the Compassion Games: Survival of the Kindest, and the incredible impact it has made at the California Institution for Women (CIW) in Corona. An edited version of the article was recently published in the National Association of Social Workers newsletter and I wanted to share it because the message needs to continue to get out there about this powerful event that has been creating a culture of compassion all around the world. I have helped to bring the games to the high school I'm interning at, which will be implemented at the beginning of March. I can't wait to see how the games will impact the community at the school. And it's wonderful to know that the planning stages of another Compassion Games is also in the works for CIW.
Please share and get the message out. And consider bringing the games to your own community!!
