General discussion of issues related to Theravada Meditation, e.g. meditation postures, developing a regular sitting practice, skillfully relating to difficulties and hindrances, etc.
This 13 minute video features a talk by psychotherapist Jenny Phillips. It describes how Vipassana meditation helped prisoners who took part in a 10-Day course at Donaldson Correctional Facility in Alabama, USA, to emerge with a renewed self-image and a greater sense of personal responsibility.

Great video. I commend the courage of those organizers.
I hope this message will be passed on to the prisoners of the world.
Those who are thinking that they are living outside a prison.
