Activate Your Practice This Fall
Dear Friend of iBme,

The iBme community includes thousands of young people, parents, educators, activists, artists, and devoted supporter from all walks of life and at all levels of experience. Together, we are people who care about others, the planet, and the future.

Through the tools of mindfulness and compassion, we are engaged in creating a saner, more embodied, collaborative, and equitable future that includes and benefits everyone — right now.

This fall, we invite you to participate in a course, immerse in a retreat, use our mindfulness resources, engage and share with us on social media, and tell others about what we're up to.

Now is the time to activate your practice. In these unprecedented times, we are a source of connection and community.
