Contemplative Care Retreat 2024: The Nobility of Imperfection

September 25th – 29th, 2024 | Garrison Institute

Led by Chodo Robert Campbell, Koshin Paley Ellison, & Guest Teachers

at the Garrison Institute in Garrison, NY

Our Contemplative Care Retreat this year is a time of community exploration, grounded in the practice of the Six Paramitas (sometimes referred to as the Six Perfections). As we dive into the teachings of generosity, ethical conduct, patience, diligence, meditative concentration, and wisdom, we uncover their relevance in our relationships with both ourselves and others.


Through meditation, dharma talks, personal meetings with teachers, experiential learning exercises, delicious meals, and periods of rest, work, and movement, we will consider together how to care for one another while continuing to cultivate our own unique expressions of joy, courage, compassion, and connection. This retreat will maintain Noble Silence after dinner through breakfast.


This annual retreat is open to all! Whether you are new to meditation and integrating spiritual practice with care or you are an experienced practitioner needing reinvigoration. We celebrate anyone who wishes to dive deeper into practice and relationship. 


For alumni of our Foundations in Contemplative Care program or Contemplative Medicine Fellowship, the annual retreat is a reunion and an opportunity to reconnect, meet other practitioners, and nourish your practice within community. 


Come join us this fall!


20 Continuing Education Credits (CEs) for Social Workers are available for this retreat. There is a $25 certificate fee for CEs.
