Meditation Tuition Recommended For Prisoners

0 Comments
HM Prisoners can reform through meditation

Prisoners should take meditation tuition in order to reduce their violent behaviour, help them become better citizens when back in the real world and teach them appreciation, gratitude and personal balance.

This is according to Labour MP Chris Ruane, who told the Commons that since mindfulness and meditation and other similar techniques have been adopted by US marines and proven to be successful, it could work well with prison officers in Britain.

Noting that big companies like Google, Apple and the Huffington Post have all adopted mindfulness practices in the workplace, Mr Ruane observed: “If it’s good enough for the captains of industry, it’s also good enough for ordinary workers like prison officers, prisoners and prison officers together in tandem and this is when mindfulness works best when it’s the teacher and the pupil, when it’s the GP and the patient, where compassion is increased.”

The benefits of meditation have long been recognised and can go a long way to helping people relax more fully – both mentally and physically – and reach a state of inner peace. It can do a lot to help reduce any feelings of stress, anxiety and depression, so could perhaps be used as a rehabilitation tool for those currently in prison.

Simply by practising certain techniques for about half an hour twice each day, you could see a marked difference in how you feel and how you react to different situations. You’ll become more aware of yourself and your surroundings, and learn to control your own emotions more effectively.
