Teen Retreats -- iBmeiBme TeachersMaryland and VirginiaWeekend and weeklong retreats throughout the yearAll LevelsTeens 14-19 years oldMeditation, mindful movement, community, activities

These retreats are a unique opportunity for youth ages 14-19 to experience mindfulness meditation, mindful movement, and community in an atmosphere of acceptance, support and kindness. Youth learn to cultivate self-love, acceptance and resilience and to come into alignment with who they truly are.

With an experienced and compassionate adult staff and beautiful surroundings, we create a strong and safe container that allows teens to deepen their awareness of self, the world they live in, and the way they interact with others and gives them a toolkit for lifelong mental health and social-emotional well-being.

Find out more about the iBme programs at their website.

These retreats are co-sponsored by IMCW.
