Instruction and Guidance in the Unified Mindfulness Meditation System
Mindfulness is a quality of attention that one can cultivate over time, to enhance their overall experience of life in any given moment.
The Unified Mindfulness System is unique in that it trains mindfulness by targeting 3 Core Skills:
Concentration: Our ability to focus on what we want to focus on in any given moment.
Sensory Clarity: Our ability to track and untangle our experience as it unfolds moment to moment.
Equanimity: Our ability to remain open to our experience whether pleasant or challenging.
Unified Mindfulness or UM, is a clearly defined, scientifically informed, systematic approach to meditation:
UM is designed to be inclusive of all individuals of any age, background, or experience level.
UM’s many options for practice make it an engaging, creative, and effective practice whether "on your cushion" or engaged in your daily life.
UM is universal; it lays out the map for the entire meditative landscape to help you quickly orient yourself and your experience for immediate, consistent, and continual results.
If you are new to meditation, the Unified Mindfulness approach is extremely fertile ground from which your practice will grow and thrive. If you are an experienced meditator with a regular practice, the UM system can help you gain insights into your practice and offer you greater flexibility when challenges arise.
