The teenage years can often seem like a thrilling yet terrifying rollercoaster ride. During this time of tremendous physical and emotional growth, huge life changes and intense academic and social pressures, teens often struggle to cope. It doesn’t have to be like that.

The iBme Retreat Model


We teach teens proven awareness and concentration practices that have been used for thousands of years. Teens learn how to: settle a busy mind, skillfully handle emotions and thoughts, direct and sustain attention, cultivate compassion, and truly listen and communicate to one another. Through guided mindfulness meditation, small group discussions, and fun workshop activities, participants experience a sense of connection and safety that many have never felt before.
