Lionheart’s Houses of Healing Course for Prisoners in Solitary Confinement

21/08/19 0

The HOH Self-Study Course for Prisoners in Solitary: Although the grant that funded the Houses of Healing Self-study Program for those in solitary at 3 California prisons ended in 2017, Lionheart continues to offer this course to prisoners in CA’s solitary units both in Pelican Bay and CSP-Corcoran for free. In total about 600 prisoners in CA solitary units (otherwise referred to as SHUs – Special Housing Units) have registered for the program. Feedback continues to be outstanding.

“This course has greatly impacted my life in a positive way.  I’ve taken several self-help courses.  I’ve been in solitary confinement for more than 15 years, but this course was unlike any other and made me look deeper into myself.  And it has most of all made me take time to pause and think, reflect upon life and past mistakes and errors, and then make a rational, logical, and wise choice.  Before I’d act or respond without thinking or worry of the consequences.”     SHU Prisoner

“I could not see myself making the progress I have made without the HOH self-study course. It was as if I was sinking in hatred and resentful quicksand that was stripping me of my humanity, health, and peace but someone reached out and I was willing to accept the helping hand.”
