Youth and Family Programs

IMC offers four age-specific programs beginning with kindergarten-aged kids and ending with 12th grade high school students.


Memorial Weekend Family Retreat for K – 5th graders and parents / guardians May 23rd to 25th, 2020

SATURDAY, May 23rd – MONDAY, May 25th, 2020. Jikoji Retreat Center, Los Gatos.

Enjoy a weekend of Family Practice, Parent Practice, Hiking, and Community

We invite you to join us! During this weekend we will meditate together as families, as well as in separate groups for adult caregivers and children. There will also be plenty of time to explore our diversity in a kind and welcoming way, share our cultures and family traditions, enjoy hiking, arts and crafts, and spend free time relaxing outdoors. Everyone will also care for the center by doing simple tasks.

See the event post for details.

Mindful Teens (High School Students)

Led by Vy Le and Gregor Levy
First and Third Sunday of the month, 5:00 – 7:00 pm

We aspire to create a safe and joyful space where teens learn mindfulness to nurture inner-discovery, clarity and a deeper connection with others. After a guided meditation, we discuss issues that are alive and rich in us (typically around relationships with friends/family, stress, intentions, identity, etc.) and in general have some fun with life!
