Insight-out: Guiding Rage into Power

Thinking about race, violence, prison... Last week I went to a meditation retreat led by Jacques Verduin and 10 men who had each spent many decades serving time in San Quentin State Prison. I learned a lot from all these men who are working to

  • increase emotional intelligence
  • de-escalate violence of all kinds (physical, energetic, emotional, economic, sexual, spiritual)
  • cultivate mindfulness
  • understand victimization

Whoever survives a test of violence, whatever it may be, must tell the story. That is his duty.
