The Gristmill Hermitage is in Garrison, New York. The original grinding stones are still in residence, and the waterfalls and millpond create a setting where the sound of falling and coursing water create an environment with a very particular dynamic. It is the writing home of Sensei Bonnie Myotai Treace, founder of the the Bodies of Water School of Buddhism, and also provides opportunities for poets, artists, environmentalists, and meditators to work on special projects, receive spiritual support, study together or in solitude. At the Mill, Myotai Sensei also offers private spiritual direction sessions, leads meditation and there are special retreats and lectures.
