In 2002, psychotherapist Jenny Phillips begins intensive meditation retreats for inmates at a maximum-security prison in rural Alabama. Based on the principles of Vipassana meditation, the 10-day retreats are conducted in total silence. This documentary explores the lives of four convicted murderers before, during and after the arduous retreats, as well as reactions from residents of the nearby town of Bessemer, many of whom object to the program on religious or social grounds. Buy the DVD & additional info here: http://www.dhammabrothers.com/

  1. Thanks Dave. It’s an interesting approach – and I understand is being adopted in at least one prison in England and Wales (although not necessarily being implemented as designed / prescribed). Triggered some fresh ideas in my mind – watch this space.
