Three meditation programs in February and March




Meditation Hall at Garrison Institute

Garrison Institute, which hosts and advocates for contemplative practices and spiritually grounded values in building sustainable movements for a healthier, safer, more compassionate world, will host three meditation programs in February and March.

Eve Ekman and B. Alan Wallace will teach Cultivating Emotional Balance, from February 23 to March 2.This workshop is designed to bring participants a rich and in-depth understanding of their own emotional lives and guide them toward their overarching goals of a meaningful life. The Friday-to-Friday program gives participants time away from their daily lives to expand their meditation practice, reset their nervous system and connect with like-minded people, so they can return home feeling rejuvenated, restored and inspired.

From March 9 to 11, Sharon Salzberg and the Holistic Life Foundation will teach People Who Care for People, designed for the caregivers who play a vital role in our communities. Whether they regularly care for others as part of an intimate family circle or larger social network, or are part of the wide array of helping professions in health care, education or social justice, their work is vital to our society, but they often suffer frustration, exhaustion and burnout as a result. This weekend retreat is designed to help caregivers find balance and recharge physically, mentally and emotionally through yoga, meditation and contemplative practices. They will leave equipped to practice self-care at home.

Jane and Derek Kolleeny will lead Practice Mindfulness on the Spring Equinox: A Special Retreat on How to Meditate, from March 23 to 25. Designed to appeal to new meditators as well as those with a developed practice and those simply seeking renewal in the serenity of a contemplative environment, the program will consist of sitting and walking meditation, talks and guided meditations, group discussion, yoga and optional one-on-one interviews with a meditation instructor. During breaks, participants can walk Garrison Institute’s labyrinth and trails, relax in its saunas or simply enjoy its contemplative setting.

Garrison Institute is located at Route 9D at Glenclyffe, Garrison, NY. For more information, visit GarrisonInstitute.org or call 845.424.4800.
