About Thrive Inside CIC
Thrive Inside helps residents and prison staff to develop unique skills for feeling safe and calm in any situation, to make better decisions, and to live a life with meaning and purpose.
We also work alongside people working a 12 step programme of recovery and other mens groups offering shadow meditation workshops to help fund our work.
Thrive Inside instructors teach a form of meditative self-inquiry, or mindfulness, called iRest (or Integrative Restoration). iRest is a structured, 10-step form of mindfulness training, which has been adapted for vulnerable populations that may have experienced traumatic life events and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Support Our Work
Support can also be in the form of individuals who wish to teach or support iRest groups in prisons around the UK or anywhere in the world. We also need volunteers to help with administration.
We are currently exploring registering as a UK charity.
