Khalila Archer is a mindfulness and yoga instructor with 20+ years of personal practice. Introduced to yoga and meditation in her teen years, she has attended many multi-day silent meditation retreats, including two month-long retreats. Her background includes over a decade as a wilderness educator leading multi-day expeditions for a variety of educational organizations, as well as teaching interdisciplinary curriculum in formal classroom settings and beyond. She holds a B.A. in Adventure-based Environmental Education from Prescott College and over 500 Yoga Teacher Training hours. Khalila teaches meditation retreats for all ages through Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme) in both residential settings and remote wilderness environments. Her teaching is grounded in nature awareness and connection, mindfulness meditation as a means for insight, care, and well-being, and social justice praxis that recognizes our interdependence and collective need for freedom. Khalila currently serves on the iBme Board of Directors and is part of the core faculty for the iBme Mindfulness Teacher Training.
Zac Ispa-Landa (he/him) is a teacher, father, beekeeper and student of the Dharma. Since a young age, he has been deeply curious about the nature of mind, magic, dreams, and the mystery of consciousness. He’s practiced and studied meditation for 20 years – primarily Vipassana (insight) meditation and, more recently, Vajrayana Buddhism. His practice is supported by a broad and eclectic mix of teachings and methods. For the last five years, his primary teacher has been Lama Rod Owens.
At iBme, he is a lead teacher on teen retreats and core faculty in the Teacher Training Program. He’s also a Senior Lecturer in the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Vermont and works with people throughout the country as a mindfulness teacher and Dharma facilitator.
He believes we are living in unprecedented times that call for new ways of knowing and being and is devoted to awareness practice as a path towards individual and collective liberation. His practice is inspired by interdependence, diversity, mystery, and the possibility of awakening.
Zac lives in Winooski, Vermont with his partner, son, and tens of thousands of honeybees.
