Tuesday Nights: Winter Film Series Film: THE DHAMMA BROTHERS


January 15 / 5:30 PM - January 15 / 8:30 PM

"The Dhamma Brothers, East Meets West in the Deep South."  This is a powerfully moving film showing the effects of taking meditation into a maximum security prison.  "...for some of these men, a spark is ignited when it becomes the first prison in North America to hold a Vipassana retreat, a deeply demanding course of silent meditation lasting ten days.  This film, with the power to dismantle stereotypes about men behind prison bars, in the words of Sister Helen Prejean (Dead Man Walking), 'gives you hope for the human race.'"
