Our faculty and staff

Our courses are led by awesome adults with years of experience serving and working with teens and young adults, alongside their own longstanding mindfulness practices. iBme faculty and staff walk their talk in their professional and personal lives and devote themselves to creating a truly unique and safe container for all to be welcomed, be real, and be accepted — and have some fun (yeah, we do that too).
