Dear Friend,

We commit every day to ensure a beautiful, empowering, and equitable world for everyone. Step by step, breath by breath, and program by program, we connect teens and adults of all ages with the proven, timeless practices of mindfulness.

Despite radical shifts and pressures in the world, iBme is thriving — through the practices of mindfulness itself, we respond to the critical needs of the moment, while maintaining our commitment to the biggest picture of what the world needs. 

Thank you for nurturing this community and contributing to all the goodness below.

COVID-19 Response
Meeting the Moment
In a time unlike any other, iBme has welcomed 1,660 participants to 100+ programs since March — that's 3 years of impact in 5 months!

Since shifting to online programs, we have:
In addition, our annual spring practice challenge and fundraiser, Commit to Sit, concluded with a special workshop led by Tara Brach. Our community raised $106,868 to support teen programming!
Gratitude to Aneesa Khan for the incredible graphics (above and below) she created for iBme's new summer courses.

What good is practice if it can’t effect change?

Being in Beloved Community

Equity of every kind — e.g. social, racial, gender — has served as a core commitment for iBme since our inception 10 years ago. The horrific events of this spring and the uprising of voices and protests have only served to amplify the need to continue in this direction.

Our new Equity & Interdependence Dashboard provides a real-time view of our learnings and actions related to this work, as well as community resources from our teachers and participants. Envisioned earlier this year, we continue to evolve this new web portal and welcome your feedback and interest.

A special thank you to Sakina Saidi for the phenomenal graphic (above) she created for iBme's Equity and Interdependence Dashboard.
Growing Up and Out
Our inspiring 2018–19 Annual Report contains stories and insights on the impact of our work, along with an overview of our financials. It serves as a beautiful reminder of the power and importance of what we do through our core programming, community building, mindfulness educator training, collaborative leadership, and more.

Looking back, it is clear how our past has prepared us to meet the present.
