Garrison InstituteThe Garrison Institute is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian organization exploring the intersection of contemplation and engaged action in the world.
Our program initiatives - Contemplative Teaching and Learning, Transforming Trauma andTransformational Ecology - create rigorous, innovative, contemplative-based tools and approaches to help teachers, caregivers, human service providers, environmentalists and others on the front lines of social and environmental engagement succeed.
We nurture development of professional fields to discuss and disseminate these approaches, breaking silos and opening up dialogues between frontline professionals, scientists, and contemplatives. We test these approaches in innovative pilot programs in settings from domestic violence shelters to classrooms. We refine, replicate them and adapt them to new settings and larger scales, and track results.
At the same time, our retreat programs bring world-class teachers from diverse wisdom traditions to wide audiences, conveying a wide range of contemplative ideas and practices conducive to personal growth and social change.
Since its founding in 2003, the Garrison Institute has hosted over 500 retreats and events, and attracted more than 40,000 participants – each one a potential agent of change.
The Institute is housed in a beautifully renovated 77,000 square foot former Capuchin monastery with comfortable accommodations, world-class meeting facilities and healthy, locally sourced food for groups of up to 175 people. Located one hour north of New York City on the banks of the Hudson River, surrounded by forest and fields, it offers a unique, authentic setting for non-sectarian exploration of contemplative practice and social change.
