Make it a good, kind year

January 1, 2019

iBme retreats invite teens (and adults) to experience themselves in new ways through mindfulness practice. In community, they also learn from others, gain perspective on their personal struggles, and develop lifelong connections. We believe that the skills learned are the cornerstones for creating a kinder, more compassionate world.

The opportunity for mindfulness …

October 1, 2018

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.
