Contemplative Semester

The Contemplative Semester is a 4-month transformative educational experience for young adults ages 18 – 25 that targets the primary drivers of their crisis of wellbeing.

Launching on Potash Hill in September 2024, the Contemplative Semester offers young people a deep dive into mindfulness meditation and community. With a time-tested and research-backed curriculum of mindfulness meditation, relational practices, and purpose discovery, the program prepares participants to step into powerful lives of love and leadership with:

● Improved mental health through in-depth mindfulness training for daily life.
● Deep social connection through intentional relational practices and cooperative community living.
● Lives of meaning through purpose discovery, ethics exploration and skill-building.

The Contemplative Semester imparts a life-long practice of inner freedom, compassion and equanimity – equipped as future leaders with the emotional, social and professional resources and skills to flourish and build a better world for all. The program is being launched by the co-founder of Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme), Jessica Morey, along with other long-time iBme staff members. iBme is now an international organization that holds retreats in the US, Canada, the United Kingdom, and online. Its core mission is to guide teens and young adults in developing the self-awareness, compassion, healthy communication, and ethical decision-making needed to improve their lives and communities.
