Eileen Bristol is a doer. She is the founder of a correspondence program providing meditation and self-development coaching for people in prison across the country. Known as the "Anthroposophical Prison Outreach," the APO provides library books, study material, newsletters, a correspondence course and mentors for people who are incarcerated in prison here in the United States. Ms. Bristol grew up working in her family’s motorcycle shop in Houston. Quite literally--she started pulling down a paycheck at age 9.
She went on to become the founder of the Austin Waldorf school, worked in a bio-dynamic vegetable farm, ran a massage therapy business and in 2011, opened the Sahara Lounge, a music venue in Austin, TX.
