Check out our New Year’s Retreats!

September 20, 2019

Meditation and mindfulness don’t make our problems go away. Life will always have challenges. But they can provide us with tools that lead to perspective, compassion, insight, and a ground to return to. They can also remind us of the magic within each moment.

All we need to do is practice.

September 4, 2019

September is back-to-school month for millions of students, teachers, staff, and administrators — not to mention parents.

This month, we bring you practical resources for keeping up a meditation and mindfulness practice; an interview with a leading doctor on the interplay of mindfulness, ADHD, and resilience; and info on a few upcoming mindfulness events — as well as some pure inspiration.

Summer Highlights & a Blog Full of Wisdom!

August 19, 2019

We come to the end of our teen retreat season with deep gratitude for everything we learned from our young people, for their courage and honesty, their tears and their wisdom.

What happened on retreat this summer?

Meditation happened. Relationships happened. Fun happened. Nature happened. Hugs happened. Conversations happened. Music happened. And so much more. A lot of what happened really can’t be put into words — but that won’t stop us from trying.

Want Some Great Advice on Parenting and Beginning a Practice?

Ahhhh, Summer

June and July have been incredible, with iBme retreats taking place throughout North America, hundreds of teens coming together, opening up, getting comfortable in their skins, and learning real-life skills. We still have four more retreats in August!

On behalf of all of the amazing people who staff, facilitate, and organize these experiences for teens, we wish everyone a wonderful rest of the summer.

Having fun in the sun…

There is always a lot of fun happening at our teen retreats – of course! In the midst of the turmoil and challenges of life, it’s good to make space for just goofing around, being “unproductive,” or getting physical.

Hoping your summer is off to a fun, interesting, (and maybe even a little silly) start!

Free Your Mind

July 2, 2019

Our June teen retreats were truly amazing and we are reminded of just how important and special our work is. It matters when a teen says something true for the first time, when a moment in meditation opens up a fresh perspective, when a burst of joy or sorrow is expressed, when kindred spirits recognize each other. We are honored to be a part of guiding and teaching these wonderful human beings, offering foundational life practices and skills. In truth, they teach us just as much as we teach them.

Ready, Set, ACTION

May 4, 2019

Join our annual Commit to Sit Challenge! We love May because for the whole month, iBme community members commit to meditate every day — and seek out donors to sponsor them. It’s like a mindfulness meditation marathon.

Every dollar raised supports iBme’s Scholarship Fund and helps bring our life-changing programs to youth, young adults, and teacher trainees. Last year, we allocated more than $500,000 in scholarships. Let’s see what we can get up to together this year!
