Mindfulness is paying attention to the present moment with kindness and curiosity.

iBme’s programs introduce young people to mindfulness through guided meditation, mindful movement, small group discussions and fun group activities. Participants in our programs learn self-awareness, empathy, and compassion, techniques to calm and focus the mind and mindful communication—the foundations for success in all areas of life. Our programs also including applying mindfulness skills to daily life, connecting with nature and creative expression.

The Science

iBme was honored to host with Middlesex School a talk by Dr. Dan Siegel on his book, “Brainstorm: the Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain.”

Research on the impact of mindfulness has shown benefits including increased self-awareness, improved focus and impulse control, decreased stress and anxiety, skillful responses to difficult emotions and increased empathy. Research on the impact of iBme retreats has shown teens experienced increased self-compassion and life satisfaction, and decreased rumination and reactivity following retreat. For more on the science please visit The American Mindfulness Research Association (AMRA).
