The Enlightened Sentencing Project
Welcome to the homepage of The Enlightened Sentencing Project (www.enlightenedsentencing.org) We are offering a consciousness-based approach to criminal rehabilitation. We use the Transcendental Stress Management® program and proven programs for stress reduction, including neuro-muscular integration exercises (yoga) and neuro-respiratory techniques. (If you are interested in learning the Transcendental Stress Management program for your own benefit, and are not an offender, click here.)
The graduates from our program report a remarkable transformation in their lives, and their stories can be read under Experiences. They are moving and inspiring. Anecdotal evidence is complemented by ongoing research on participants in the TESP program. Psychological tests are administered pre and post-participation. A study is being undertaken to gauge the long-term results of the program as far as it affects recidivism rates. See a slide presentation on our Ongoing Research.
Our website provides Endorsements of our program from Senator the Hon. Rita Heard Days of the Missouri Legislature, several judges, probation and parole officers and from the probationers themselves.
