Watch: Fertile Soil for Mindfulness at New York’s Garrison Institute

Fertile Soil for Mindfulness at New York’s Garrison Institute

As our planet evolves, more and more seekers look to contemplative practice to deepen their spiritual connection. In 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, worldview, and orientation.

Watch now for an introduction to Garrison’s philosophy on contemplative practice and a guided tour of this tranquil property.
