If there is one thing that can be counted on inside a community corrections facility, its the noise.
Not constant — except the hum of air conditioner fans — but always there: People talking; the KA-THUNK! of closing doors; footsteps here and there.
Every Monday at 6 p.m., however, the sounds seem to recede for participants in Vanderburgh County’s Therapeutic Work Release program who take part in the 15-20 minute weekly mindful meditation sessions.
Sounds that might be distractions any other day drift by unheeded, like clouds in the sky.
