The Great Escape: Breaking out of the Prisons of our Minds by Ray Olson

Upaya priest Ray Olson challenges listeners to imagine what the life of a prisoner might be like, recognizing that it is our thoughts and attitudes, not just our physical circumstances, that can hinder our own freedom. Referencing his first-hand experience in working with prison outreach programs, he also includes a brief summary of the incarceration system and what can be done to help give hope and a new outlook on life to those behind bars.
