Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.
The Garrison Institute is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian organization exploring the intersection of contemplation and engaged action in the world.
Our program initiatives - Contemplation and Education, Transforming Trauma and Transformational Ecology - create rigorous, innovative, contemplative-based tools and approaches to help teachers, caregivers, human service providers, environmentalists and others on the front lines of social and environmental engagement succeed.
We nurture development of professional fields to discuss and disseminate these approaches, breaking silos and opening up dialogues between frontline professionals, scientists, and contemplatives. We test these approaches in innovative pilot programs in settings from domestic violence shelters to classrooms. We refine, replicate them and adapt them to new settings and larger scales, and track results.
The Garrison Institute applies the power of contemplation to real-world problems, helping build a more resilient, compassionate society. The Institute is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to explore the intersection of contemplative wisdom and engaged action in the world.
