Review

"Bo Lozoff is a giant in the movement to turn prisons into true centers of growth and rehabilitation." Jon Kabat-Zinn -- Jon Kabat-Zinn, Personal Correspondence, January 5, 1986

About the Author

Bo Lozoff's fans range from His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Outlaw Biker Magazine. His work with the prison population of the world is legendary. Bo is a true maverick teacher and writer whose first book, "We're All Doing Time," is on the Village Voice's list of "the ten books everyone in the world should read."

More About the Author

Bo Lozoff (1947- ) is an American author, teacher, activist and singer/songwriter whose work has drawn fans as diverse as Mister Rogers, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and Outlaw Biker Magazine. His first book, "We're All Doing Time" (1984), although originally intended for the prison population, has been hailed by Village Voice Magazine as "One of the ten books everyone in the world should read."
In 1999, Lozoff was awarded an honorary doctorate in theology from Chicago Theological Seminary and the Temple Award for Creative Altruism for his groundbreaking "Prison-Ashram Project," a worldwide spiritual outreach administered by Human Kindness Foundation to distribute free copies of Lozoff's books, CDs, and DVDs to prisoners, their families, and prison staff in over sixty-one countries. Dr. Lozoff has personally visited and led workshops in approximately 1100 prisons around the world.
His musical career has produced four critically-praised CDs, Stumbling Toward the Light (1986), Whatever It Takes (2004), Eyes So Soft (2006), and Bo Goes Country (2012). Lozoff has also authored two illustrated children's books, The Wonderful Life of a Fly Who Couldn't Fly (2002), and A Little Boy in the Land of Rhyme (2011).
Semi-retired from writing and lecturing, Bo Lozoff now lives on the active lava field of Kilauea volcano, in Kalapana on the Big Island of Hawai'i. He supports himself by musical performances and by guiding hikers to see lava flowing up close. He is still songwriting and producing new musical albums.

.... and I mean that. This is no cheesy, ego-fondling "self-help" book. Whether you have been incarcerated or not, you're sure to benefit somewhat from this book. After an illuminating introduction, Bo begins with a chapter called 'The Big View', which in itself is one of the most direct, honest yet simple introductions to starting a more spiritual & disciplined life I've ever had the pleasure to encounter. Then, we have a chapter (Getting free) which outlines loads of spiritual practices, each one quite good. There's stuff from Hindu, Buddhist, Christian and Islamic contemplative traditions. Each instruction is easy to understand, and makes you want to do it. Along with that there's stuff on Hatha yoga, prayer, Karma yoga (helping people as a spiritual practice), and even how to eat spiritually. Just those 2 chapters as a book would have been awesome, but to top it all off, the following half of the book is letters from convicts to Bo himself. This may not seem so spectacular, but it is. It's very inspiring. As an added bonus, the whole book is peppered with funny cartoons, pictures, quotes and Bo's funny comments. Everything he writes just sings honesty & compassion. Plus, it's only 8 bucks! Think of all the crap books you buy for 20 or so.

Format: Paperback
This books has served as a reference, but more than that a reminder of where I am, how far I have to go and the tools to get there. Bo has produced a book taking the best of Yoga, self discipline, pragmatism and compassion and produced a ruthless guide to self-growth.

Format: Paperback
This book is incredibly inspiring. Bo Lozoff goes into one of the toughest environments there is--prison--and by teaching about meditation and yoga and spiritual truths completely transforms the lives of many people.
More importantly he doesn't preach or pretend to know all the answers. He draws from the teachings of Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism to teach spirituality that is relevant to everybody. In the section of letters to and from prisoners he shows a lot of wisdom in his answers.
You don't have to be in prison to benefit from the teachings in this book. It is straight forward and practical spirituality for everyone.

Bo is a breath of fresh air. He is selfless - there's no ego here. This is a very trustworthy man with deeply important things to say. While "Pop Philosophers" are busy making bumber stickers Bo passes on real wisdom. He doesn't want a name for himself...he just wants to help.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this book prior to recommending it to a relative who is serving a life sentence in a California prison. I had heard of the book, but was not willing to recommend it without reading it. If you are looking for a "user-friendly" introduction to spiritual development, you can't go wrong with this one. Written in a very clean, easy to understand, and loving style, the book is the one I would want to have were I facing a life sentence.

Format: Paperback
Reading the correspondence from prisoners working to pursue meditation and yoga in their search for peace just knocked me out. We think in our ordinary (free) lives that we struggle with our spiritual paths, and in theory it might be the same work, but the inspiration from these stories puts a whole new perspective on the seeking. An excellent, touching, sincere and fascinating book.

Format: Paperback
I thought that this book would be interesting and informative, but was was much better than I expected. It not only answered all of my questions and gave wonderfully clear instructions for the practices, but I actually had several "Ah Ha!" moments while reading it. I rate this book as one of the most important books that I have read in years.

This is it! This is the book that started my conscious spiritual journey some 11 years ago. This is the book I learned to meditate from. I have read literaly hundreds of books on spirituality and this is one of the best. Bo and his wife Sita are exceptional human beings. You can't go wrong with this book. Namaste
