As our planet evolves, more and more seekers look to contemplative practice to deepen their spiritual connection. On this episode we visited the Garrison Institute. This former Capuchin monastery turned non-profit retreat center is situated on 95 beautiful acres including hiking trails, a cathedral and a labyrinth overlooking the Hudson River. With a focus on mindfulness in all its forms and simple elegant accommodations, the Institute hosts 100+ retreats per year for practitioners of every faith, world view and orientation.
Watch now for an introduction to Garrison’s philosophy on contemplative practice and a guided tour of this tranquil property.
