Last week Peace in Schools partnered with Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme) to hold a mindfulness retreat for 48 teens in the Pacific Northwest. Our Executive Director Caverly Morgan was invited to be a lead teacher on the retreat and five Peace in Schools facilitators were on staff.
iBme is a non-profit that offers mindfulness retreats for teens nationwide — helping them to cultivate awareness, compassion, and kindness. iBme was recently named to Huffington Post's Next Ten list as a cause that is shaping the next decade.
The retreat was particularly meaningful to us at Peace in Schools as we had ten students attending from our Mindful Studies classes at Rosemary Anderson High School and Wilson High School. Nine of those teens were on scholarship for the retreat.
