TEDxBoston - Jenny Phillips - The Only Way Out is In

Nobody felt safe; the prisoners weren't safe, the staff weren't safe...A radical idea began to spread: maybe meditation could help. Psychotherapist Jenny Phillips describes how the tranquility of ancient Buddhist meditation at a maximum-security correctional facility helps prisoners emerge from a rigorous?Vipassana?program with a renewed self-image and a greater sense of personal responsibility. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
