iBme’s courses and retreats for high schools, colleges, and universities offer an opportunity for students, faculty, alumni, and parents to spend dedicated time outside the classroom to ease anxiety and foster new relationships.
iBme is a national leader with in-depth mindfulness programs for teens and young adults. Thousands of students and adult service providers have participated in our immersive residential retreats as well as new online programming.
Custom programming tailored to meet the needs of your school.
For retreats, the schedule is built on periods of mindfulness meditation and silent practice, small group work, engaging workshops, and ample time in nature. For courses and workshops, the focus can range from an introduction to mindfulness to exploring specific issues like social and environmental justice within a contemplative container.
A growing body of scientific research demonstrates that mindfulness and social-emotional programs in schools impacts students in the following ways:
- Improved concentration, learning retention and standardized test scores
- Stronger emotional resilience and self-esteem
- Positive attitudes about others, greater empathy, and improved social interactions and classroom behavior
- Decreased stress and reduction in behavioral issues

“A retreat gets you into meditation in a way that starting a ‘once a day’ practice at home just can’t do… I don’t know of anything else that a person can do to transform themself in a more powerful way.”
