We heal prisoners, one manual at a time

Our first goal is to donate the manual to 500 incarcerated men throughout the US.
We can only do so with your help!

Encourage a prisoner to heal ~
they’ll be a beacon to others

We view crime coming from a wound that needs to be healed
In American prisons, many of those convicted miss out on the possibility of healing and rehabilitation. We consider healing of all the people wounded by crime a neccessity for true change in the criminal justice system. Though it seems weak to be concerned with the emotions of someone who has committed a crime, it is foolish to ignore them when a refusal to acknowledge and deal with them, results in continued dysfunction that costs lives and treasure.

While most prisoners are deprived from effective rehabilitative programs, they all have access to books. So we offer a book. A transformative book to elevate one’s consciousness. A book that allows men to do their soul work independently or in small groups in their dormitories and cells.

A proven in-depth manual
Leonard Scoven’s Holistic Justice & the Path to Higher Ground is a proven manual for prisoners to heal trauma. Once healed, they’re a light that shines in prison community. The manual has the power to transform lives one at a time just as its author was transformed by the knowledge displayed in it.

Powerful lessons
Scovens, being a talented writer and lover of the Word, has translated his personal path toward spiritual awareness – while incarcerated in Florida – into powerful lessons others can use. The manual illuminates the Way. It is a seed of Restorative– and Holistic Justice that Scovens has been called to sow in prisons across America.  With your help we will provide as many prisoners as possible with a copy of the manual.





Agnes Furey is working closely together with Scovens on this project. Their cooperational roots lay in Restorative Justice. While Agnes made herself a strong advocate for Restorative Justice in society, Leonard had set up seminars ‘inside’.

Wildflowers in the Median, their co-authored book, has moved lots of people all over the world. The Holistic Justice and Path to Higher Ground manual aims to do the same behind bars.

When Scovens had been seriously thwarted in teaching this healing work in groups on the inside some years back, he first felt quite disheartened. After some time he thought of another way to get his healing message across to those who need it most… by means of the website you are now looking at!

He rewrote the workshop manual as to serve its new purpose – leading the individual inside themselves.
For change always comes from within.
