Begin the New Year with a resolution and intention to become more aware of the body and trust in its innate wisdom.
This special weekend retreat will appeal to to those looking to align their bodies, hearts and minds in the serenity of a contemplative environment. We will offer a smorgasbord of embodying practices that can easily become your daily practice for the year.
This retreat includes instruction on five different practices that focus on the wisdom of the body and can help you reduce stress: qigong, yoga, Breath Body Mind, mindfulness meditation, and the Feldenkrais Method (a practice that employs movement with awareness to improve the quality of our actions).
All sessions will be held in the Meditation Hall. The weekend will begin with a panel discussion with the instructors who will explain the practices they will teach.
Our caterer, Fresh Company, will carefully prepare healthy, delicious meals that are vegetarian, featuring locally grown and produced ingredients. Even in the winter the Hudson Valley offers many local items for the communal, buffet meals we serve, including cheese, polenta, vegetables and eggs.
Register through the Garrison Institute here.

Come explore printmaking in the Katonah Treehouse!
It's really just my deck, but we'll be above the sweeping vista of my backyard in the treetops. Relax and try your hand at different printmaking techniques, socialize, and enjoy some fine vino with your lino. Carving relief prints in a soft linoleum block is a meditative and physical process that yields beautiful artistic results.
