Mindfulness Workshops and Retreats at Garrison Institute: Cultivate mindfulness, awareness and compassion.

Main Meditation Hall at Garrison Institute

This winter, the Garrison Institute is offering a series of workshops and retreats—including silent ones—designed to cultivate mindfulness, awareness and compassion.

From December 7 through 9, Mark Nepo will lead More Together Than Alone: The Power of Spirit and Community, exploring “the heartwork that is required to inhabit our lives more deeply.” The aim of the workshop is to uncover and personalize pathways that bring us together.

The Garrison Institute is also offering two special retreats for the holiday season. Cultivate Inner Stillness for the Winter Solstice (December 14-16) is a meditation retreat for both beginners and seasoned practitioners. Embodying Practice: A New Year’s Resolution Retreat (January 4-6) is intended for anyone wishing to begin the New Year with a resolution and intention to become more aware of his or her body and to trust in its innate wisdom.

Those who prefer quiet time in their personal spiritual practice, or who simply want to spend time in a contemplative environment where they can rest, recover and recharge after the holidays, can register for the January Personal Retreat (January 18-20), which includes optional yoga instruction.

Location: Route 9D at Glenclyffe, Garrison, NY. For more information or to register, visit or call 845.424.4800. To receive a 10 percent discount on the Winter Solstice or Embodying Practice retreat, use the discount promo code WINTER when registering online.
