Doing Time, Doing Vipassana

Filed under: Dharma, Video — jonathanfoust @ 5:54 pm

If you haven’t seen the movie “Doing Time, Doing Vipassana,” it’s incredibly inspiring.  And it’s now on youtube in five parts.

For more on yoga and meditation in the prisons, this Wikipedia link has a lot of information.  If you’re interested in doing prison work here in the DC area, let me know and I can connect you with some very active and inspiring people.

  2. Thanks for posting these 5 parts Vipassana in Prison! As a court clerk, I attended Court sessions in Polish prisons. It completely changed my life. I understood that I could be one of THEM. I was lucky enough not to be born where they were born. But it i was born in their situation, I could be one of them.
    So, I was really touched by the fact they THEY can get the power to CHANGE THEIR LIFE.
    It was a wonderful movie-all 5 parts.

    • Thanks for your comments, Bozena. Mindfulness really does work what many would call miracles.
