We each discover meditation/mindfulness in different ways and at different times of our lives. Sometimes it’s a book, an audio recording, or a retreat. Sometimes someone tells us about it. Somehow we make a connection and something clicks. For some it’s love-at-first-sight; for others it takes time to develop the routine of daily practice. For some it supports a healthy lifestyle or spiritual practice; for others it transforms their lives. iBme works to expand the number of people who have the opportunity to experience mindfulness and meditation for the first — or the millionth — time.

So many people are involved in and touched by the work that we do — the teens and young adults who come on retreat, the retreat facilitators, the staff behind-the-scenes, parents, teachers, our board of directors, and our partners. What began as a simple vision to bring mindfulness to teens has rippled out to create an ever-growing community. This month, we bring you a few of their stories.
