Step inside yourself
Take time to unplug, refresh, and renew. In a beautiful setting, you’ll learn mindfulness practices for daily living and explore compassion and communication practices. Retreats offer an opportunity to tune in and get clear with yourself. You’ll take home skills for sustaining a practice and navigating your life from within.
Who is this retreat for?
Anyone with an open mind and heart who is willing to try something new and do their best to be themselves and accept everyone else in being themselves. You leave an iBme retreat with mindfulness practices and communication skills that you can practice in everyday life to continue to learn, grow, and cultivate your inner life.
Learn the fundamentals
Using a variety of formats and teaching frameworks, we impart lessons in self-awareness, compassion, and offer techniques to increase concentration and focus the mind.
Spend time each day with a small group of peers, connecting and deepening authentic relationships with other teens who are experiencing the world in similar and different ways from you.
Being on retreat offers a rare opportunity to experience a life without constant distractions. We create a technology-free environment that flows back and forth between silent and social times.
