Vegetarian Ideal


Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth
as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.

Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. - Howard Zinn

with reverence in order to give it true value.

Dr. Mark Greenberg, Director of the Prevention Research Center at Penn State University, examines the relationships between intrapersonal mindfulness activities, such as sitting and walking meditation, and interpersonal mindfulness activities, such as deep listening, regulating one's emotional reactions, and practicing compassion.

He highlights the ethical dimension of mindfulness, which is often de-emphasized. 

He concludes with a call for a research agenda that explores how intra- and interpersonal mindfulness activities and outcomes are related, as well as an examination of the outcomes of mindfulness activities in different contexts.

About The Garrison Institute

The Garrison Institute explores the intersection of contemplation and engaged action in the world. Founded in 2003, our mission is to apply the transformative power of contemplation to today's pressing social and environmental problems, helping build a more compassionate, resilient future.

Our program initiatives - Contemplation and Education, Transformational Ecology, and Transforming Trauma - bring a contemplative dimension to key social change fields, applying relevant techniques to caregiving, teaching and environmental advocacy. We also research and develop new ways of applying those techniques in specific vocational settings, from domestic violence shelters to classrooms.

Our retreat programs bring inspiring teachers and teachings from diverse wisdom traditions to wide audiences, supporting individual growth and communities of practice.
