iBme Teen Retreats and School Programs
By Editor | Oct 23 2012
iBme teaches teens proven awareness and concentration practices that have been used for thousands of years. Teens learn how to settle a busy mind, how to skillfully handle emotions and thoughts, how to direct and sustain attention, how cultivate compassion, and how to truly listen and communicate. 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.
The core of the iBme retreat model is mindfulness. Mindfulness is embedded in all the daily activities, which include several formal sitting and walking meditation periods. Using the mindfulness skills that are taught, teens begin to calm their mind and explore their own mind and body. Recent studies have also shown some of the other benefits of practicing mindfulness, which include an increase in concentration, empathy, emotional intelligence, self-esteem, and memory.
