Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBMe) has recently been recognized by Huffington Post as one the the top ten causes that will shape the next decade for their work bringing mindfulness to the mainstream.
iBMe works to improve the lives of teens, parents, and professionals through mindfulness education, retreats, and school programs. They recently raised over $65,000 for teen scholarships by pledging to meditate daily for all of April.
Nathan Worthen, a 19 year old who went to an iBMe retreat, talked to Mindful in the June 2014 issue about his experience:
“The retreats have helped me stop thinking of myself as an idiot if I slip up. Being a teenager is trial and error time. There are a lot of mistakes to be made, but when you learn to rebound from them, it makes you stronger.”
