Prison visit and hospice workshop

Visited Paul's meditation group at the archaically named Wakulla Correctional Institution. If you look at the web link you will see a picture of the entry where we spent 40 minutes waiting for clearance to enter. Well worth the wait though as we spent the morning with a delightful group of men, sharing practice and discussing the spiritual dimension of life. A very moving experience. I really felt for those we left behind as we drove out of the door - to imagine being confined to suc a small space for so many years....
Afternoon, we visit Big Bend Hospice where Paul also volunteers. Here we gave a workshop on Buddhist Psychology . Quite a challenge to give the basics in an hour and a half!
