From dynamic resilience training to thought-provoking conversations with leading experts on the most pressing social and environmental issues of our times, the Garrison Institute offers a wide array of virtual programs that cultivate compassion, connection, strength, action, and transformative change.
These programs are advanced by our groundbreaking contemplative-based, secular, social, and environmental program initiatives:
The Pathways to Planetary Health Forum series presents curated dialogues with leading experts and practitioners in ecology, new economics, sustainable business, contemplative practice, and the arts – with the mission of advancing planetary health.
Our Fellowship Forum series features conversations with the Garrison Institute Fellows alongside extraordinary leaders who hold expertise in contemplative wisdom, the science of interconnection, generative action, and collective healing.
The Contemplative-Based Resilience Project offers webinars with instructors that specialize in contemplative practices, trauma and resilience, and healing and well-being – as they apply to professionals working in a broad range of human and social service disciplines.
The Compassionate Leadership in Finance Program speaks with pioneers in the financial and business sectors to help managers unlock and strengthen compassionate leadership skills and competencies, thus transforming finance into a force for good.
The Garrison Institute is also committed to providing a safe virtual space for meditation and exploration of contemplative practices, led by experienced teachers.
Our Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) Sangha is a free weekly gathering of self-identified BIPOC practitioners of all levels and experiences, who are invited to practice in a welcoming space of mindfulness and transformation. We also offer a Noontime Meditation Group consisting of meditation practice, reading, and discussion; it welcomes practitioners of all levels as well.
Your support matters. Our vision for a more just, compassionate world has never felt more urgent. While we cannot share physical space together, we remain committed to a shared practice of social and spiritual care. We are thankful for the opportunity to provide meaningful and accessible programming during this time of physical distancing. If you feel called to support our work, we welcome your tax-deductible contribution toward our efforts.
