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.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
