Each of us is a brilliant spark of genius. Each of us has the potential to create the change that we want to see in the world. Given the urgency of our times, how can we tend to the serious work that needs to be done with care, love, and possibly even joy?
Perhaps these are not just helpful qualities—but essential ones—say the Garrison Institute fellows, a group of scholars, activists, artists, trauma-informed care practitioners, and contemplative teachers who represent the next generation of leadership in the movement toward a more compassionate, resilient future.
The Garrison Institute Fellowship is grounded by four core pillars: awareness-based contemplative wisdom, the science of interconnection, generative action, and collective healing. In this immersive experience, the fellows take you on a healing journey, where you learn, play, and transform through practical trauma-informed practices such as:
- Music, movement, and mindfulness
- Individual contemplative practice
- Alchemizing trauma through clinical psychology, energy medicine, plant medicine, and spiritual traditions
- Community conversation and expanding practice into relationships
- Self care
The Garrison Institute Fellowship embraces the emergent nature of our times. The transformative change at the core of their work will invigorate your imagination and help you to harness the practical skills needed to navigate our times.
Each of the fellows brings their gifts, their vulnerability, their authenticity, and their fullness of self in relationship with one another. You gain a sense of hope, a sense of efficacy, and a sense of community as you catalyze your presence as a force in the world.
