About iBme

Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme) is a growing nonprofit offering in-depth mindfulness retreats and programming for teens and the parents and professionals who support them. Our model guides participants in developing self-awareness, compassion, and ethical decision making, and empowers them to apply these skills in improving their lives and communities. We believe that mindfulness and compassion have a powerful role to play in strengthening social justice advocacy and in transforming the deep underlying structures of the mind and the heart in order to reimagine and co-create a just and liberated world.

iBme’s Collaborative Leadership Team consists of seven mission-centered staff working with a set of standing committees, each of which have a representative on iBme’s Board of Directors, collaboratively governing iBme. Collaboration extends outward to tens of teachers, hundreds of volunteers, and all the teens and families we serve across the Unites States and Canada.
