ZOOM SPEAKER

James Alexander

Tuesdays at Noon

"If you want to know about our painful prison system, both the heartbreak and the redemption that is possible, James tells the truth in his vivid, moving story." 

 

Jack Kornfield, bestselling author and founder of Spirit Rock Center, Woodacre, California 

"I truly believe that James Alexander is the Nelson Mandela of America. He has met a multitude of challenges, including 28 years of incarceration in our much-maligned prison system, and has emerged as an object lesson in redemption and a teacher to all people. The book is a no-holds-barred account of a man on his way to greatness." 

Richard Grace, author, vintner and philanthropist 

"James Alexander spent every minute of the 28 years he served in the nation's toughest prisons for an accidental murder refining and purifying himself until virtually everyone he came in contact with recognized him as a special being. Everyone. Including his guards and parole board, which three times recommended him for parole only to be countermanded each time by Governor Schwarzenegger.

 

The courts eventually overruled the governor. James left prison as one of the kindest, most spiritually developed men I have ever met, and that includes His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. Read his inspiring book and learn what an attention fixed on compassion and helping others can generate in the midst of Hell, and what 'real' toughness looks like."
