In 2017, the Garrison Institute will offer a series of workshops and retreats on meditation to cultivate mindfulness, awareness and compassion.

The series begins the weekend of January 6-8 with Embodying Practice: A New Year’s Resolution Retreat, designed to help people become more aware of their bodies and trust in its innate wisdom. Later that month, the weekend of January 27-29, renowned teacher Tara Brach and her husband, Jonathan Foust, will lead a retreat exploring how to release the limiting beliefs that fuel insecurity, judgment and self-doubt, and how to awaken the “fearless heart—the heart-space that has room for fear and full aliveness, creativity and limitless love.”

In March, the Garrison Institute hosts People Who Care for People (March 10-12), as a community of caretakers from all walks of life recharge physically, mentally and emotionally with meditation, yoga and contemplative practices.

For those wishing to practice mindfulness on the spring equinox (March 17-19), the institute will offer a special retreat focused on Pema Chödrön’s book How to Meditate.
