Day-long Alumni Retreat
In commemoration of the 10-year anniversary of the founding of iBme!
Open to all teens, veteran teens, parents and staff
All teens, veteran teens, parents and staff are invited to join La Sarmiento, Joe Klein and other beloved teachers and staff for a daylong reunion event in commemoration of the 10-year anniversary of the founding of Inward Bound Mindfulness Education. We’ll begin with a morning of silent practice together and the second half of the day will be a mix of facilitated sharing and celebration. Please come to share your stories on the impact of your teen experiences with meditation and retreats. Our celebrating will culminate with a full-on community share and dance party!
We also plan to recruit a videographer to capture videos of the day and even have a room set up where individuals can be interviewed or privately record their personal impact statements of how iBme retreats affected the trajectory of their teen and young adult lives. Parents are also welcome to attend. If you cannot attend please send us a selfie video impact statement.
We are asking folks to pre-register on the iBme website as early as possible so we can plan. We are only charging a small fee to cover cost of the facility and snacks. As always no one will be left out for lack of funds. Its sliding scale so give what you can. Lunch will not be provided so plan to bring one or get food at Whole Food and other restaurants two blocks away.
La and Joe invite you to return home to yourselves and to your first practice community at this amazing event.
