The Guiding Rage into Power (GRIP) Program at San Quentin is a year-long transformative program that provides the tools that enable prisoners to "turn the stigma of being a violent offender into a badge of being a non-violent Peacekeeper." Not only have the men transformed their own behavior, they have become agents of change, people with skills to defuse conflicts around them. This 5 minute video offers a rare opportunity to go inside San Quentin and witness the men actively engaged in the GRIP Program.
For more on the GRIP Program, please see an extended version of the GRIP Program Video on the PROGRAMS tab of our website. Get a more in-depth view of the men as they learn how to stop their violence, become emotionally intelligent, cultivate mindfulness, and come to understand victim impact. The year-long journey culminates in a rite of passage, the GRIP Graduation at San Quentin.

Insight-Out is the natural result of my previous work as the Founding Director of Insight Prison Project. After pioneering and teaching many programs in San Quentin for 15 years it became time to integrate what was learned into one integral methodology and let it go out into the world in different ways.
