There are many ways for you to develop your meditation practice and meet like-minded teens here at IMCW. IMCW teens attend monthly meditation classes, daylongs and class series, and residential retreats. We hope to see you soon!
This gathering is an opportunity for teens 14-19 to come together to support each other's mindfulness practice. The format is as follows:
- 25 minute guided mindfulness meditation
- Introductions / Check-in Games
- Short talk on discussion topic on how to integrate mindfulness into our everyday lives in dealing with relationships, school, the world
- Gratitude Practice
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.

These retreats are co-sponsored by IMCW.
