iBme UK Retreat for Young People

August 18, 2018 - August 23, 2018

After the success of our first mindfulness retreat for young people in the UK last August we are very pleased to announce our 2018 retreat. It will be held at the lovely Kench Hill near Tenterden in Kent.

Our multi-day residential retreats teach participants proven awareness and concentration practices. Through guided mindfulness meditation, small group discussions, and mindful movement, participants learn how to settle a busy mind, direct and sustain attention, investigate emotions and thoughts, cultivate compassion, and communicate with their peers.

The daily schedule includes free time to connect with new friends and dynamic workshops, that offer a range of experiences from creative and movement arts, sports, nature awareness, creative writing, and more! Many hesitant young people walk away saying it was one of the best experiences of their lives.

We offer a retreat experience of the highest quality. Our retreat teachers and staff are senior experts in their fields, drawing on decades of experience. The young person to staff ratio on every retreat is 2 or 3 to 1, ensuring that your child receives exceptional support and mentoring. The skills and experiences that young people gain on retreat are unparalleled and go on to support them throughout the rest of their lives. Our testimonials from parents and young people speak for themselves.

Retreat Description

Come explore mindfulness through formal meditation periods and relational mindfulness activities on the 2018 iBme UK Retreat for Young People. This retreat will be held at Kench Hill Centre, Appledore Road, Tenterden, Kent, TN30 7DG

iBme is committed to accessibility. This retreat welcomes young people from all racial/ethnic groups, sex and gender identities, abilities, and religions.
