Redemption and transformation can occur in even the harshest of surroundings. During his 14-year incarceration Fleet Maull found meditation. With meditation he found a freedom that transcended prison walls. After his release he returns to prison to teach meditation, healthy survival skills and share his story of meaningful change. 1 out of every 100 Americans is currently behind bars. And 700,000 of them will go home this year. The Prison Mindfulness Institute's "Path of Freedom" program teaches prisoners strategies for surviving on the "inside". This video features a few of the program participants in a Rhode Island medium-security prison working toward forgiveness, peace and freedom. It challenges us to always embrace the potential for transformation and the responsibility we share in helping each other find our paths to freedom.

    This video was completely inspirational!!! Coming from a background that taught me no life skills, I continually struggled with every day life. To watch these men meditate and to be mindful of the moment that they are in is astounding. We all learn and if we learn how to bring peace to our selves , we can spread it outwards too. Peace out : )
