We are excited to announce our first online programme for our alumni community.
This will be a precious opportunity to gather with others who have been to an iBme residential retreat or online course, for 2 days of connection and recharging our mindfulness practice. Being immersed in mindfulness for a consistent period with others gives us the support and continuity we need to strengthen our practice and bring it more into our daily life.
You are very welcome to join us if you have attended an iBme UK residential retreat or online course over the last 3 years and are still in the 15-23 age group.
Dates & Time
Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th Feb 2021
2 hours each day, 2.00pm – 4.00pm
This intensive is free to attend and generously funded by the National Lottery Coronavirus Community Support Fund.
Registration opens soon. We look forward to seeing you again.
