How does APO work?
||| When a request for more information is received, APO sends out an inspiring introductory packet including: Self-Development in the Penitentiary, meditative exercises, a copy of Practical Training in Thought, an article on non-violent communication, a list of library books available and information on how the program works.
||| Library books are provided free of charge to prisoners, and a prepaid return postage envelope is provided with each package of books. The library currently includes over 250 titles.
||| Program participants also have the opportunity to take part in the EduCareDo Self-Awakening Correspondence Course, a series of printed lessons providing an overview of anthroposophy that was developed in Australia.
||| Students who maintain their study for some time have the option of participating in the mentorship correspondence program, this program provides study support and connects students behind bars with others who live in the outside world.
||| Self-development classes are offered in local prisons, where volunteers are available.
||| In 2016, 600 copies of How to Know Higher Worlds were placed in prison libraries, with contact information inside the book cover for those who want to learn more. We have received many inquiries from people who read these library books.
||| In 2015, a study guide workbook and a copy of the book, How to Know Higher Worlds, (for the student to keep) was provided to 800 individuals in prison.
||| Twice yearly a newsletter, Illuminating Anthroposophy is published which fosters community among prisoners through articles, artwork, poetry, and excerpts from letters. All newsletters are available on the website.
