The Garrison Institute
The Garrison Institute is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian organization that explores the intersection of contemplation and engaged action in the world.
The institute’s program initiatives—contemplation and education, transforming trauma and transformational ecology—create rigorous, innovative, contemplative-based tools and approaches to help teachers, caregivers, human service providers, environmentalists and others succeed on the front lines of social and environmental engagement. They nurture development of professional fields where innovators discuss and disseminate these approaches, breaking silos and opening up dialogues between frontline professionals, scientists, and contemplatives. They test these approaches in pilot programs in settings from domestic violence shelters to classrooms. They refine, replicate, and adapt them to new settings and larger scales, as well as track results. At the same time, their 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.
