Namaste Hall CIIS Office of Diversity and Inclusion odi@ciis.edu false MM/DD/YYYY

For thirty-one years Kenny Johnson's most fervent desire was to hear his name 'ringing in the streets' as a hustler, thief, and pimp. Running parallel with that desire was a persistent seed of spiritual longing that would not leave him alone. Kenny was arrested thirty-seven times and spent much of his life in prison, or on the run. Each time behind bars sent him into a deep and profound despair. Eventually his desire for lasting freedom would drive him to find a power that could not only get him through his final sentence, but free him from prison forever. After meeting his teacher, Gangaji, Kenny found this power and discovered that it is his very essence, and today, he shares the wisdom of his awakening with incarcerated folks, and anyone who is thirsty for true freedom as he once was. Kenny is the author of "The Last Hustle", a book about his life and awakening.

This event is free and open to all. For more information please email odi@ciis.edu
