What happens on retreat?

Meditation

Learn mindfulness practices such as breath & body awareness and mindful walking. Beginners (more than) welcome!

Workshops

Explore activities like painting, improv, journaling, and creative writing. Pick and choose what interests you, or lead a workshop yourself!

Dance Party

Dance without worrying about what other people think of you. We all have our unique ways of dancing (or not – you don’t have to dance either)!

Small Groups

Laugh in good company, take the opportunity to be vulnerable, and play games like “sweet seat” to connect more deeply with a small group of teens.

Wisdom Talks

Cuddle up with a blanket! Listen and learn how to tend to relationships, emotions, the challenges of our times, and more – it’s all about applying mindfulness to daily life.

Yoga

Move and release through guided daily yoga practice.

Benefits of attending retreat

Feel More Connected

We’ll offer your teen tools to open their heart, deepen their sense of self-compassion, and connect more deeply with themselves – and with you!

Help Them Find Their People

Your teen will develop meaningful relationships in a community of peers and mindfulness teachers alike, where they’ll be accepted for who they are.

Take the Stress Off

You don’t have to provide for every aspect of your teen’s mental and emotional well-being. The mindulness practices your teen learns on retreat can offer additional support!

Peace of Mind

Worry less, knowing your teen will learn tools to compassionately and mindfully meet every moment of their life.

Forge Meaningful Relationships

You always have a friend at iBme! Connect with people in a safe, welcoming space where you don’t have to “fit in” to be loved, to make friends, to be yourself.

Find Your Center

Gain tools to deepen understanding of your inner life, and apply skills for navigating your thoughts and emotions.

Make Happiness Easier

Learn how to release tension, pain, and self-judgment through the practice of mindfulness.

Share Who You Are

Authentically share who you are with your peers in small groups, workshops, creative/art shows, during walks in the woods, and more.
