Gus Castellanos speaks with us today about Addiction, Sobriety, Mindfulness, and Prison.
The road to mindful practice is rarely a straight and level path. Usually there are twists and turns, unexpected roadblocks, places and times where there is a need to take a few steps back to start again. What is learned from that difficult journey can be transformative in our life, and the lives of others.
