Welcome

 

Comienzos is an educational, therapeutic program serving men and women who are incarcerated in New Mexico, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.  We teach the skills and cultivate the awareness that is needed for men and women to live in freedom.

Comienzos was founded in 1986 and means "beginnings." For more than two decades Comienzos has been helping thousands of people to start again in the recovery of a healthy, free, and digified life.

Our classes include:

  • Learning and Practice in Nonviolent Communication, as developed by Dr. Marshall Rosenberg;
  • Meditative practices, including seated meditation, T’ai Chi Chih, and yoga; and,
  • 12 Step Recovery

We are now offering classes in the community for graduates who have been released. For more information, email us using the "Contact" link on the main page.
