Teen mindfulness retreats: More than a summer camp.
Our unique Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme) retreat model allows participants to gain compassionate insight into their own experience. Every retreat attendee is supported as they endeavor to authentically connect with themselves and their peers while embracing the many benefits of mindfulness practices.
Young people get what they need on retreat.
We offer innovative formats and teaching frameworks to help teens to deepen their self-awareness and empathy and to utilize techniques to calm and focus their mind. Our mindfulness practices enhance listening skills, compassion, and communication – essential competencies for success in all areas of life.
Justice and equity are at the core of mindfulness.
To capture our values and actions related to this truth, we created an Equity and Interdependence dashboard and published a 10-Year Equity Progress Report. We provide testimony to how we have sought to answer this fundamental question: How does a historically white-led mindfulness organization that values connection, inclusion, and non-judgment “walk the walk” at all levels of the organization?
