Personal Mission:

To provide a safe place for people to discover their brilliance and have the courage to live in it.

Action in the World:

James was one of the designers and leaders in a 4-day training at Folsom Prison in Ca. which began in 2000. The workshop provides a behavioral-cognitive model for men to take accountability for their lives and begin to lead responsible lives. Since rival gang members participate in the workshop and the follow-up sessions, the level of violence in the prison has dropped considerably. There will be a documentary of the work released in the near future. To gather more information about the organization. you can go to Inside Circle Foundation.org.
