It is important to have meditation groups because they afford the prisoner space to process complicated mental states, process experiences resulting from the therapy they receive, a space to observe complex situations in life in prison in conditions that are far from simple. The quiet formed within him by practicing meditation lets experiences emerge and lets the prisoner reach a deep understanding of sensations he experiences in everyday life.
Prisoner rehabilitation can be assisted by meditation because practice encourages the development of skills of internal and external listening, emotional regulation, and better control of reactions, understanding and calming urges and thus preventing impulsiveness.
Meditation can help reduce violence. If meditation practice is through the prisoner will be able to delay impulsive reactions and it can also help with decision making. After the incident, the prisoners recognize their mistake, but because they were agitated they were unable to may adequate choices.
The meditation groups we have in the therapeutic departments are very important. The therapeutic process the prisoners undergo is supposed to lead to real and deep change and it is an emotionallystimulating and difficult process. In this process the prisoner undergoes various experiences and events. Appropriate processing of these experiences by practicing meditation provides an emotional space and assists in the therapeutic process of drug rehabilition.
