Dear Friend,

We each discover meditation/mindfulness in different ways and at different times of our lives. Sometimes it's a book, an audio recording, or a retreat. Sometimes someone tells us about it. Somehow we make a connection and something clicks. For some it’s love-at-first-sight; for others it takes time to develop the routine of daily practice. For some it supports a healthy lifestyle or spiritual practice; for others it transforms their lives.

iBme works to expand the number of people who have the opportunity to experience mindfulness and meditation for the first — or the millionth — time.

Doing the Best We Can Meditation

Try This!

Doing the Best We Can guided meditation
(25 minutes)

Recorded live with Eric Busse, this meditation is the remedy for those times when we’re a little burned out, being hard on ourselves, wearing ourselves thin, or simply keeping an internal stance of self-criticism. Settle in and find the space to let go.

Celebrating Summer 2018
Hope, Trust, and Beauty

It can be hard to imagine what it’s like to take 300+ young people through residential retreat experiences in mindfulness, self, and relationships — from logistics to meltdowns, it takes a lot of work on the part of the facilitators and staff. It’s exhilarating and frustrating, and amazing.

For those of us who guide and run these retreats, there is truly nothing more inspiring than a young person finding their voice, an outburst of communal laughter or a simple, painful moment of truth. We see the results in every single person we meet.

This is just a little of why we do what we do

The connections I have made here have changed my life and allowed me to feel so free and fully connected as a human. --- Donovan
