Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme) is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of teens, parents, and professionals. Through mindfulness retreats, iBme helps participants cultivate awareness, compassion, and kindness for themselves, others, and the natural world.
We lead mindfulness retreats for teenagers across the country at retreat centers and in wilderness settings. We also provide mindfulness retreats for individual schools and in partnership with other non-profits that work with teens. Learn more about our story and what we do.
Also check out the video clip below, “Mindfulness: Youth Voices.” The Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre (Vancouver, BC, Canada) recently published this three-minute short film directly geared to youth, to address questions such as, “What is mindfulness? Why would I be interested in it?” The highlight of the film is the youth sharing, in their own words, how mindfulness practice has changed their lives.
