A group of men, formerly incarcerated together at Folsom Prison, share their most personal insights about practicing centering prayer while serving time. The film, also featuring men currently at Folsom, is an intimate testament to inner transformation. This short documentary is part of a larger project to raise awareness about centering prayer and bring the practice to other incarcerated men and women, as well as to highlight this nonsectarian practice as a way to bring together individuals and groups committed to social and restorative justice.

This screening is supported in part by a generous grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to Morehouse College's Movement, Memory, and Justice Project.
