Fourth Biennial Contemplative Care Symposium

Garrison Institute


New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care’s mission, to transform the culture of care through contemplative practice, meeting illness, aging, and death with compassion and wisdom, is at the heart of this symposium. You will meet thought leaders, healthcare advocates, professional caregivers, spiritual care providers, community leaders, innovators, and dedicated volunteers from around the country who, like you, are on the front line of our rapidly changing and increasingly strained healthcare system.

Through experiential learning, keynote addresses, workshops, conversations with your colleagues at dinner, in the hallways, and as you walk the beautiful grounds at the Garrison Institute, a renovated monastery located on the banks of the historic Hudson River, we will come together to build a community of care.

Who should attend?

Social workers, nurses, physicians, healthcare advocates, hospice workers, volunteer and family caregivers, researchers, chaplains, physician assistants.
