The Donaldson Correction Facility in Bessemer, Alabama, is the only maximum security prison in North America that allows prisoners an opportunity to take a 10-day (10 hours a day) Vipassana meditation course. Visiting Emory to talk about the program with students and faculty included Dr. Ron Cavanaugh, director of treatment for Alabama DOC; Kathryn Allen, PhD, Psychologist, Donaldson Correctional Facility; and Ben Turner, Vipassana Prison Trust.
