The Garrison Institute is offering a series of winter workshops and retreats designed to cultivate mindfulness, awareness and compassion.

December 1 through 3, writer and poet Mark Nepo will lead The One Life We’re Given: Finding the Wisdom That Waits in Your Heart, a workshop to help participants more deeply appreciate the gift of life. December 15 through 17, the Garrison Institute will host Cultivate Inner Stillness for the Winter Solstice, a meditation retreat for both beginners and seasoned practitioners.

Anyone whose New Year resolution is to become more aware of the body and trust in its innate wisdom can sign up for Embodying Practice: A New Year’s Resolution Retreat, scheduled for January 4 through 7. Those who simply want to spend time alone in a contemplative setting to reflect, rest and recharge for the year ahead can join the Garrison Institute on January 12 through 14 for a personal retreat.

Finally, the Institute will offer a special workshop, Cultivating Emotional Balance, February 23 through March 2. “This is an evidence-based training that was developed at the request of the Dalai Lama,” says Jane Kolleeny, retreats director. “It will help you understand more deeply your own emotional life and set your course for a meaningful life.”
