Public talks about Vipassana Meditation and other events are periodically scheduled to provide interested persons with information about the technique. Two award winning documentary films, "The Dhamma Brothers" and "Doing Time, Doing Vipassana" may be shown. The films are about the teaching of Vipassana meditation in the prison system in the US and India, respectively, and the remarkable results which were achieved in terms of changes in the attitudes and behavior of the inmates who participated.
One way to find out more about Vipassana Meditation is to come to one of these organized events. Following the introductory talks and video showings there are opportunities to ask questions and talk informally with experienced meditators.
