Prison Meditation Program
Since 2011, a group of volunteers has been meditating with a group of inmates at the Federal Training Centre of Laval, Quebec, who wish to discover and practice the Buddha's teachings. The group is led by a teacher who guides a sitting practice, followed by a Dharma talk and discussion.
These sessions happen three Wednesday evenings a month, from around 5:00 - 9:00 pm including travelling time, all the year round.
The prison meditation program is supported by the Chaplaincy Services of Correctional Services Canada.
Here is a personal testimonial written by a volunteer who has been with the program since it began.
