TEDx - The Only Way Out is In

 This video is a talk given by Jenny Phillips, wherein she talks about the way Vipassana meditation brought an inspiring turnaround to the several lifetime convicts incarcerated in Alabama's Donaldson Correctional Facility in USA.

 About Vipassana: (Source: Vipassanā (Pāli) or vipaśyanā (विपश्यना, Sanskrit) in the Buddhist tradition means insight into the true nature of reality.[citation needed] A regular practitioner of Vipassana is known as a Vipassi (vipaśyin). Vipassana is one of the world's most ancient techniques of meditation, which was introduced by Gautama Buddha. It is a practice of self-transformation through self-observation and introspection to the extent that sitting with a steadfast mind becomes an active experience of change and impermanence.
