DRM Dartmoor Update

Now we have 24 DRM Facilitators

On Monday we completed our latest training for prisoners at Dartmoor. Another 11 men became DRM Facilitators bringing our team to 24. One of them had actually been a participant who has been supported through the DRM process and has now been ‘clean’ for a whole year for the first time since he was 8 years old.

We sat in circle with all 24 men and soaked up the atmosphere as the current team welcomed and acknowledged their new team members and the new team members honoured the work that has gone before. All committing to making prison life better and enjoying the solidarity.

One of our latest trainees asked the current team for advice on what to be aware of when starting out and he was told, “make sure you don’t start helping so many other people that it becomes a way of avoiding your own stuff. We have an internal support system in the team which means we look after each other. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable and ask for help” and “if you get really stuck with your own stuff, Maria will sort you out, she will take you to the depths of your pain and transform it into emotional freedom”.

What more could I have asked for as a response.

This is a really exciting time for the DRM project at Dartmoor. I’m humbled, honoured and very proud to do this work.

I’m just wondering how to fund the next part of this project.
