Letters from Prison – Free Dharma for Inmates

We’d like to share some moving words from a group of readers we have had for years now. On request, our Publishing Controller Michelle sends free Windhorse Publications books and written replies to prisoners. The gratitude with which they receive them is touching. These books and letters enhance their lives, and in a place where there is a lot of time for reflection, they can find greater self awareness and understanding through the Dharma.

Windhorse Publications published his book, co-authored with psychologist Dr. Jed Shamel, Mindful Emotion: A Short Course in Kindness in March this year. So far, reviews have been glowing.

Eight Step Recovery Changing Lives

An international Eight Step Recovery movement has emerged, with regular courses and meetings in the UK, Finland, the US, Canada and Mexico.

We are pleased at this success story - how...

We have released Mindful Emotion: A Short Course in Kindness just ahead of a prediction reported in The Bookseller - the UK’s publishing-trade magazine - that the next trending lifestyle attitude after lagom and hygge is . . . kindness.

The book draws on Kindness Behaviour Training and offers reflections and exercises to bring more kindness into our daily lives.

In addition to these important works, much effort has been made by the editorial team to trace back the source of original teachings and present them as endnotes. The last volume, the Concordance, will index teachings...
