The Garrison Institute is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization whose mission is to apply the transformative power of contemplation to today's pressing social and environmental concerns, helping build a more compassionate, resilient future. It is both a think tank and a convening center for thought leaders in the fields of environment, education, and trauma recovery. The Institute acts as a neutral hub for the growth of knowledge in multidisciplinary fields, gathering scientists, professionals, and contemplatives.
As well as developing our programs, we also host spiritual retreats with leading teachers from all traditions. The Institute is located in a beautifully renovated former monastery set amidst 90 acres overlooking the Hudson River. We are located an hour north of New York City accessible by the Metro-North train line.
