What We’re Working On

Contemplative-Based Resilience

For years, the Garrison Institute has offered a program that provides resilience trainings for direct service providers through the Contemplative Based Resilience (CBR) Project. These evidence-based trainings give caregivers—health care providers, social workers, humanitarian aid workers, first responders—the opportunity to strengthen their resilience.

What We’re Working On


CARE is a unique program designed to help teachers, other educators and administrators learn how to reduce stress and enliven their teaching by promoting awareness, presence, compassion, reflection, and inspiration – the inner resources they need to help students flourish, socially, emotionally and academically.

What We’re Working On

Pathways to Planetary Health

The Garrison Institute’s Pathways to Planetary Health (PPH) signature program explores and promotes a regenerative paradigm that nurtures the health of the whole, simultaneously optimizing human well-being and preserving the biosphere. The predominant worldview and its economic system for assigning value is based on a degenerative paradigm, which values extraction and consumption, and rewards the success of the individual or corporation. PPH seeks to illuminate a different way forward.
