“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” —Rumi

At the Garrison Institute, you are much more than your job. You will join a team of people who bring their heart, mind, and spirit to what they do each day. Our team embodies the spirit of hospitality and openness we provide to the thousands of people who engage with the Institute, either in person while participating at one of our retreats or events, or online while reading insights on reflections on Lineages.

When you work at the Garrison Institute, you are able to sit in on an extensive range of events, retreats, and workshops. You’ll encounter some of the world’s most respected contemplative and spiritual teachers, brilliant scientists, and social change agents who are all working to build a more compassionate and resilient future for all. Everyone who works at the Institute can also participate in our weekly community sit and tai chi and qigong class. Headquartered in a beautifully renovated monastery right on the Hudson River, the Institute encourages all its staff members to connect deeply with nature, as well as our fellow humans.
