Jessica Morey leads meditation retreats across the US and offers one to one meditation and leadership coaching. She is a cofounder and lead teacher of Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (iBme), a nonprofit organization bringing in-depth mindfulness training to youth. She began practicing meditation at age 14 on teen retreats offered by the Insight Meditation Society (IMS) and graduated from the IMS Teacher Training Program in 2021. She has been leading meditation retreats since 2009 and is honored to currently serve as the Board Chair of the Barre Center for Buddhist Studies.
Before founding iBme, Jessica worked in clean energy and climate policy. Her published works range from the chapter ‘Ordinary Awakening’ in Blue Jean Buddha to Conflict Resolution of the Boruca Hydro-Energy Project: Renewable Energy Production in Costa Rica. She combined these areas of passion in an article in the Shambhala Sun, Bodhi Trees, about the potential of Buddhist practice to heal our relationship with the natural world. She holds a BA in Environmental Engineering from Dartmouth College and Masters degrees in Sustainable Development and International Affairs. She loves dancing, yoga, and being outside.
