Best Spiritual Movies on MWGE – An overcrowded maximum-security prison, the end of the line in Alabama’s correctional system, is dramatically changed by the influence of an ancient meditation program. Behind high security towers and a double row of barbed wire dwells a host of convicts who will never see the light of day. But for some of these men, a spark is ignited when it becomes the first maximum-security prison in North America to hold an extended Vipassana retreat, an emotionally and physically demanding course of silent meditation lasting ten days.
The Dhamma Brothers tells a dramatic tale of human potential and transformation as it closely follows and documents the stories of the prison inmates at Donaldson Correction Facility, who enter into this arduous and intensive program.
The essence of meditation is to allow whatever is there to arise and look at it in the light. How do I become aware that there is no future enlightenment?

The Spirit just asks for the willingness or trust first to see the world differently than we saw it before. It is just a tweak in perception.
