About Us

Founded in 2003, the Garrison Institute is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization committed to harnessing the power of contemplative wisdom and practices—from many traditions, and in many contemporary contexts—to build a more compassionate, resilient future for all.

The Institute has a team of over 25 permanent staff with an annual operating budget of approximately $4.5 million. The Institute is housed in a beautifully renovated former monastery on 90 acres overlooking the Hudson River, one hour north of New York City. To learn more about our work, please visit
