In September 2020, we started the Unconditional Freedom Project, with the vision of turning prisons into monasteries. We launched the course with our book, The Art of Soulmaking, at a state facility in California. The Art of Soulmaking workbook teaches prison residents contemplative practices, along with meditation and yoga. Every student is paired with a volunteer to correspond with by mail as they journey through the course.

We currently have over 200 people enrolled in the program and our waitlist is growing each week as women inside hear about us from those in our program!

The staff and volunteer letter writers at The Unconditional Freedom Project put our pens and hearts to paper and have been writing to our incarcerated participants as they journey through soulmaking. Naturally, we get shaped in the process, learning to meet each person human-to-human and heart-to-heart. As the number of people in our program continues to expand, our network of trained volunteers who correspond with these women grows too. Our volunteers are made up of people from local community centers, senior homes, donors and friends from around the country.

About Love to Table

Location:

1275 4th Street, #3220, Santa Rosa, CA 95404, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide spiritual and material sustenance and balance, to fill what is empty and empty what is full, and to feed the hungry.

Description

We restore dignity to the cancelled members of society: the marginalized, the cast out, the prison residents and the wild ones. Our programs provide the reflection, nourishment and tools necessary to restore human dignity. Once reclaimed, we believe people naturally find the desire to contribute their unique gifts to society.

The Unconditional Freedom Project is a program of Love to Table, a 501c3 organization. Love To Table was originally incorporated in 2002 as Fill Up America. Over time, it changed its name and mission to reflect the expanded focus from an organization using surplus food and clothing to provide educational and charitable assistance, to one dedicated to providing spiritual and material sustenance and balance, to fill what is empty and empty what is full. From the beginning though, the heart of the organization has centered on restoring dignity to the most outcast members of society, and our programs provide the reflection, nourishment and tools necessary to restore human dignity.
