The Passing of Police Captain & Dharma Teacher Cheri Maples

Updated: Jul 6, 2020

We join so many others in mourning the tragic loss of a great Dharma teacher and friend to so many.  Cheri Maples made unique contributions to mindful justice field, as a former police captain and ordained teacher in Thich Nhat Hanh’s lineage, who trained numerous law enforcement and other public safety professionals in mindfulness through her organization, the Center for Mindfulness & Justice

Cheri and her work are irreplaceable, and at the same time she has opened the way for many to follow in her footsteps bringing the healing and transformative power of mindfulness and compassion to our public safety professionals.
