Intro to iBme’s mindfulness for teens course, with Jessica Morey, iBme Executive Director

Jessica specifically designed the course with a desire to give teens practical skills for being human by turning them on to mindfulness. She has taught hundreds of teens in the last 10 years. She herself was introduced to mindfulness as a teen and over time, found that it helped her to slow down and understand her emotions, thoughts, and habits. As a result, she experienced more ease and well-being, even when life was stressful. She was hooked — and joined iBme to ensure more teens had access to the tools of mindfulness.

“You can train your mind little by little to be calmer, more accepting, and kinder.”

Not everyone is into apps for their mindfulness and meditation practice. Luckily, most people can find a class where they live or online videos. iBme offers an array of resources on our website for beginning or re-connecting with a mindfulness and meditation practice:

Retreats.
We believe that the best way to learn mindfulness and meditation practices is in-person with a teacher. Our Summer and New Year Retreats for Teens combine mindfulness, communications, nature, and fun (yes!) into a unique camp/getaway experience that is what we call “An iBme Teen Retreat.”
