About the ToDo Institute

The ToDo Institute campus.

Our Mission

The ToDo Institute creates
personal, family, and community change through:

The skillful use of attention;
the cultivation of gratitude;
the awareness of interdependence;
the ability to put oneself in another's shoes;
and purposeful action in the face of obstacles.

Building on methods of Japanese psychology,
we offer an elegant blend of the spiritual,
the psychological and the practical.

The ToDo Institute nestled in the foothills of the Green Mountains.

Founded in 1992 as a non-profit education and retreat center, the ToDo Institute serves as a meeting place between east and west. By blending Japanese approaches to mental health, known as Morita and Naikan, we provide an approach to living well that bridges the gap between the spiritual, the psychological and the practical.

In addition to our on-site programs and retreats, we conduct long distance learning programs, publish a quarterly journal, and provide an outstanding collection of resources through our online bookstore and library.

Our retreat center is nestled on 12 wooded acres in the foothills of the Green Mountains. Our peaceful grounds, walking trails, scenic views and beautiful facility offer a quiet setting for personal renewal and growth. We offer you an opportunity to experience, rather than simply imagine, a change in the way you live.
