I just watched this film; a man staying where I am told me about it this morning. A very fine documentary. There are some remarkable moments of transformation shown. In my own life I have found similar from Vipassana meditation-very simple, very difficult, very difficult, and amazingly rewarding.
If watching it inspires you, the 10 day training given these prisoners is the exact same training available at centers all over the world at no charge to you (including room and food). Aside from being traditional, the reason for no fees is that this is just too valuable to the world to deny anyone due to their financial situation. There is a lot of information on the Vipassana website. You can follow links on the site to find a course near you.
Watch it and let me know what you think!
