Freedom From Within

Jesse Hermosillo, Sr. (center), leads qi gong meditation sessions every week at two New Mexico state prisons. Inmates who have two years or less until their release qualify for the program, and typically 80 percent of eligible inmates join. Hermosillo has been teaching meditation to inmates for 15 years, but he is modest about his efforts. "I'm just a former inmate who came back full circle to teach. It's a huge part of my own healing."
