What are the Parks of Study and Reflection?

The Parks of Study and Reflection are places

… of self-transformation

… of inspiration

… of connecting with others

… of connecting with the Profound


They are an expression of the new spirit awakening in the hearts of people who search to go beyond religious, cultural and ethnic differences to the profound meaning of our common humanity. They are spaces dedicated to study and self-knowledge, to nonviolence as a way of action, and to reflection on life’s fundamental questions.

The Parks are ideal settings for seminars and retreats, activities and ceremonies based on Silo’s Message, and the personal works carried out in the organizations of the Humanist Movement. The Parks are also the sites for the study and development of the Crafts and Disciplines.

Apart from Hudson Valley Park there are currently over fifty Parks of Study and Reflection around the world: found in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas — including Red Bluff, California. They are a network of parks open to all people who wish to participate in the wide array of activities that take place within them. They have been organized and built by volunteers who participate in Silo’s Message and New Humanist organizations.

The Hudson Valley Park is very near the Hudson River, and the neighboring towns of New Paltz (11 miles) and Kingston (2 miles) are great places to visit.
