It’s time to get in the mindfulness groove. Of course, we’re talkin’ iBme-style, which means fun!

Formerly known as Commit to Sit, Summer Bound is our annual spring fundraising + community practice event.

Re-Treat Yo Self (that’s right, Park and Rec fans!) is this year’s youth-approved theme for 21 days of self-love, reflection, and expression. This youth-focused, adult-friendly experience will take place April 1-21 via Instagram and Zoom.
