Here’s some information about an upcoming meditation retreat for teens with Tara Brach and a non-profit group, Inward Bound Mindfulness Education.
Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme) is dedicated to improving the lives of teens, parents, and professionals. At iBme, we teach teens proven awareness & 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 to cultivate compassion; and how to truly listen and communicate. Through mindfulness meditation, small group discussions, and fun workshop activities, participants experience a sense of connection and safety that many have never felt before.
At our teen mindfulness retreats, we offer teens, ages 14-19, an amazing opportunity to explore their body and mind through the practices of insight meditation; qi gong and yoga; delicious organic meals; and tools to deepen their listening and speaking skills through group mindfulness exercises and workshops in creative expression. These retreats are fun and transformational for teens and staff alike.
Tara Brach is a leading teacher of meditation, emotional healing and spiritual awakening, with over 35 years’ experience. She is a clinical psychologist, the senior teacher and founder of the Insight Meditation Community of Washington, and author of the books Radical Acceptance and True Refuge—Finding Peace and Freedom in Your Own Awakened Heart.
This weekend teen retreat is being held at Sevenoaks Retreat Center, in Madison, Virginia, from Friday, October 5 to Sunday, October 7.
