Sharon Weil talks with Jacques Verduin about his transformational programs with incarcerated men in San Quentin Prison. Guiding Rage into Power (GRIP) provides the tools that enable prisoners to create change from the inside out and "turn the stigma of being a violent offender into a badge of being a non-violent Peacekeeper” They discuss some underlying causes of violence, and how mediation, community, and forgiveness practices can bring about a change of heart in a very tight space. Released inmates who have graduated from the program work with challenged youth and are models and teachers to their brothers and sisters who are still incarcerated.
