We’ve heard YOU!
While iBme retreats and community have been a tremendous resource during these challenging times, the amount of screen time during this past year has been overwhelming for teens and young adults.
In an effort to find a sweet spot, we have decided to transition the following online summer retreats to a single-day format. And thanks to generous donor support, we are offering them FREE of charge.
Now it’s even easier to say yes to nurturing practice and community time!

We have THREE online retreats happening in July — now’s the time to register!
Our retreats are spaces for teens and young adults to discover and explore their most authentically awesome selves through mindfulness and community. It’s about being real, getting vulnerable, sometimes getting silly, feeling some emotions – and definitely having fun along the way.
We’d love to meet your teen! (If you are a teen, we’d love to meet YOU!)

Dear Friend of iBme,
As we pen this note, we invite you to join us in one single breath.
Together, we take this moment to honor the countless stories of resilience occurring in our communities amidst ongoing systemic injustice and fear.
Reimagining and co-creating a just and liberated world includes:
1. Understanding the history of racism and the system of white supremacy in order to address past harms and institutionalize accountability in our community for collective change.
2. Implementing interventions that use an intersectional analysis, impact multiple systems, center Blackness, and build the collective cultural, economic, and political power of Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC).
3. Applying the practice of love, along with disruption and resistance, to the status quo when necessary, particularly when that path is most difficult.
We invite you to explore with us several key Equity and Interdependence updates as well as opportunities to contribute to these goals at iBme.

As we continue to hold all that’s alive in the world with you, there’s much to share in upcoming opportunities to learn, practice, and grow in community.
In addition to ongoing sits and gatherings, our summer retreats for teens and young adults (including one residential retreat in Massachusetts) are now open for registration!
Our annual Commit to Sit meditation challenge and fundraiser begins April 30th — as does our final spring retreat. And, our yearlong Mindfulness Teacher Training starts in June.
Explore the Retreats and Events Calendar to learn more. We’ll see you soon!

Happy Spring to You,
One playful way to think about meditation practice is through the lens of Green Eggs and Ham – you know “would you, could you in a boat or with a goat? …in the rain or on a train? …in a car or in a tree? …it’s so good, so good, you see!”
When we’re healthy and in a groove, our answer to these questions can be an emphatic, “Of course!” Other times, like during a global pandemic, our answer can be a hard no. That’s when it’s good to lean on our community for support.
We all could probably use a little more playfulness and meditation in our lives right now, and that’s what we hope to do together during Commit to Sit this May.

It’s officially spring on Saturday, March 20! There is optimism in the air about many things, including our ability to begin to feel safe again together. It will take a little more time, and we are on our way.
There’s lots going on at iBme. We’ve got a new retreat at the end of April to kickoff Commit to Sit, ongoing community sessions, and the Mindfulness Teacher Training starts in June. Get inspired below!

You’re stuck at home, and ready for winter to be over. Life feels confusing, untethered + uncertain.
You want to get out in the world + keep moving forward – but it feels hard to do that right now.
You want to stop worrying about the future + connect with like-minded people.
Hit the pause button with us March 5–7!
