In his foreword, HIs Holiness, The Dalai Lama says: "This practical manual will inspire everyone who is as concerned with helping others as with their own personal improvement." We're All Doing Time is an interfaith text - "a guide to getting free" - acclaimed by prison staff and prisoners alike as one of the most helpful books ever written for true self-improvement and rehabilitation. Few books have crossed religious, ethnic, cultural and economic lines with such a clear and simple, immediately useful expression of ageless spiritual truths. It is written for incarcerated people, prison guards and all people living within their own personal prisons. All proceeds support the Prison-Ashram Project, which sends these books free to prisoners for 40 years now.

Miller’s Children is a passionate and comprehensive look at the human consequences of the US Supreme Court’s decision in the case of Miller v. Alabama, which outlaws mandatory life-without-parole sentences for juvenile murderers. The decision to apply the law retroactively to other cases has provided hope to those convicted of murders as teenagers and had been incarcerated with the expectation that they would never leave prison until their own death as incarcerated adults. Psychological expert witness James Garbarino shares his fieldwork in more than forty resentencing cases of juveniles affected by the Miller decision. Providing a wide-ranging review of current research on human development in adolescence and early adulthood, he shows how studies reveal the adolescent mind’s keen ability for “malleability”, suggesting the true potential for rehabilitation. Garbarino focuses on how and why convicted teenage murderers have been able to accomplish dramatic rehabilitation and transformation, emphasizing the role of education, reflection, mentoring, and spiritual development. With a deft hand, he shows us the prisoners’ world that is filled, first and foremost, with stories of hope amid despair, and of moral and psychological recovery in the face of developmental insult and damage.

Homeless Hero: Understanding the Soul of Home considers the human mission to know the soul and navigate life experiences. When pain and emptiness show up in life, only those who undertake the hero's journey grow into a place of understanding where they can then flourish. Mike Tapscott was watching a movie at a resource center for homeless people when he developed the idea for this book. The movie workshop at Lodestar Day Resource Center in Phoenix, Arizona, teaches life's lessons through the magic of cinema. The lessons manifest through a series of dramatic events: hearing a call to adventure; refusing the call; crossing a threshold; encountering tests, allies and enemies; being unable to turn back; soul searching; finding reward; returning with the story; and experiencing resurrection. These events are what life is all about. The hero's journey through homelessness--just one symptom of the challenge of overcoming emotional pain--is one way to help change individuals and then change tracks, patterns, and less-than-constructive behaviors. Here is a compilation of experiences from Tapscott's 36-hour experimental journey into life on the streets, his own volunteer work and through interviews with employees in the social service system, other volunteers and homeless individuals. Homeless Hero is a case study, an experiment, an adventure, and a multi-layered examination of American society that seeks to help you understand the moving picture of your own hero's journey.
