"This program does what I previously had thought was impossible: taking an extremely refined system that can be overwhelming for beginners, and crystallizing it into a simple yet profound introduction which could be a starting point for further investigation, or an entire lifelong practice in itself."
- Paul Rubell
Academy Award Nominated Film Editor
Have you ever been so caught up in the moment, you felt as if time stood still?

Like in the middle of a first kiss, or when you held your child for the first time.  

Maybe it happens during less extraordinary events, like watching the sunrise on a cloudless morning or while listening to your favorite song.

When it happens your attention is so intensely focused in the moment, that you actually lose your sense of self. Suddenly, you're part of something bigger. 

You're energized.

You feel profound happiness.

Deeply meaningful moments like these are important, and when they happen, most people think..."I wish I felt this way more often" or "this is what life is all about."

Did you know it is possible to have a similar experience by simply taking a sip of your morning coffee, or during your commute to work (yes, traffic jams and all )?

You already have everything you need inside you to do it. 

In fact if you look carefully,  these peak experiences are always available to you, and you can develop your ability to discover them at any time throughout your day.

Once you know how to harness and focus your attention - to live fully "in-the-moment" - you can awaken  your innate ability for happiness, no matter what life throws your way.

The Unified Mindfulness CORE training program was created to show you how to put the pieces together so you can start your journey down the path toward a more enriched, fulfilled life.

What Exactly is Unified Mindfulness?
"Mindfulness is an unreasonably effective way
to increase human happiness."

- Shinzen Young
UnifiedMindfulness.com is the official facilitator training platform for Shinzen Young and Unified Mindfulness.

And you've probably heard about mindfulness by now. It's a buzz-word that seems to be getting used everywhere these days.

Silicon Valley companies like Google, Facebook, Apple and Twitter have instituted mindfulness programs to help their employees be happier, healthier and more productive at work (and at home.)

Public school systems and universities are introducing mindfulness into their classrooms to help their students become more focused and engaged.

World-class athletes are using mindfulness to optimize their performance and manage pain.

The healthcare industry is turning to mindfulness to help speed recovery,  reduce stress,  battle addiction,  ease pain & suffering and help support psychotherapy.  

And that's just the tip of the iceberg...

But what exactly is Unified Mindfulness?

Developed over fifty years of practice and research by the renowned meditation teacher Shinzen Young, Unified Mindfulness is a simple, yet highly effective meditation system built for the modern world.

It brings together key elements of Eastern contemplative traditions and the technological, scientifically-based methodology of the West.

And Unified Mindfulness is a secular form of meditation, which means it is not religious in any way - so anyone, of any faith, can do it.

In short, it's the merging of the best of the East with the best of the West.
Although the Unified system is simple - it is extremely powerful. 

One of its strengths is its precision.

It's so precise and dependable that institutions like Harvard Medical School, Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Vermont use it as the basis for their research on meditation and its application in the neurosciences, psychology, clinical sciences.
"As far as my thoughts on the utility of Shinzen’s system in research goes, I always say that it offers an algorithmic approach to understanding the mind of the meditator that other systems of mindfulness and meditation do not. This makes mapping the meditative mind more feasible in a laboratory setting and provides an opportunity for a rigorous neurophenomenology.
- David Vago
Instructor of Psychology

Mindfulness is a set of skills that you can learn and grow.  

It's like a gym for your mind, and it can radically transform your life.
But if you're like most people, you're probably wondering...
Where Do I Begin?
Ten minutes a day is really all you need to quickly build a solid, daily mindfulness meditation practice. 

If it's hard for you to find an extra ten minutes in your day, you're still in luck because one of the strengths of Unified Mindfulness is that you can take it "off the cushion" and into the real world.

As your mindfulness practice deepens you'll want to bring it into your daily activities to enhance your enjoyment when things are going well and to help you deal with things more effectively when they aren't.

Ordinary activities like eating or brushing your teeth can become extraordinary events.

Coping with the constant pressures of our high-stress, modern lives can become much easier when you develop the tools to skillfully face them.
"I really enjoyed how precise and in depth the course was. If I didn't understand something it was made clear after taking the quiz. Great system here, I'm definitely going to recommend this to my friends and carry on to the teaching course!"
- Stephen Anguiano
What is the CORE Training Program?
The interactive CORE training consists of 10 video-based lessons, each with its own self-paced quiz designed to test and reinforce what you've learned in each video.  It was built for people brand-new to meditation AND for highly experienced meditators.  
"...Unified Mindfulness' strategies are both simple and therefore readily learnable, yet deeply transformative."
- Peter Marks
Executive Director
The Centre for Care Canada
If you're new to meditation, you'll find that it's simple, straight-forward lessons make Unified Mindfulness easy to understand and just as easy to put into practice. 
Experienced meditators will discover Unified Mindfulness's simple, yet highly flexible framework presents a multitude of options, allowing you to optimize your existing practice.
"In my lab we study the effects of mindfulness meditation on stress and health, and we consistently turn toward using Shinzen’s Unified Mindfulness system in our studies for one simple reason, it works.

I personally have been using Unified Mindfulness techniques in my daily practice for several years, I find they are clear and powerful. This approach will change your life, try it and you will see."
- Dr. David Creswell 
Director of Health and Human Performance Laboratory
and Associate Professor of Psychology
 Carnegie Mellon University
Each lesson has its own group discussion area so you can interact with the Unified Mindfulness community to get answers to questions that may arise during your lesson.
Most people find guided meditations helpful, so once you've completed the ten CORE lessons, you'll put what you've learned into action with two guided meditations that you can download and use anytime, anywhere you want.

Finally, we've also included a special, advanced bonus lesson: "See, Hear, Feel" that will give you a fun and easy framework to use as the foundation of your own daily meditation practice.

The CORE training program has everything you need to put the pieces together and develop a life-long mindfulness meditation practice.
"Fantastic!  I consider myself as someone who is very familiar with this 'System' of mediation, and yet going through this course, I would find over and over again subtitles iI hadn't realized or gave proper emphasis on! 

 The whole course is laid out in a simple step by step format that covers such a vast amount of meditative/contemplative possibilities in a easily digestible format. 

Wonderful, I would (and already have) wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in, or is already engaging in a meditative practice.

This is very very useful. I could never have imagined something so simple, subtle, precise and flexible. I have used different techniques over time from counting the breaths, to Vipassana as taught by Goenke.

The lovely thing about this course is that it helps and does not hinder other courses i have previously done.

Cognitively it is fascinating just as Vipassana is. But, as Juliana notes, one does not need to form a guilt relation with the practice as can happen with Vipassana.

Anyway, I loved it and I am beginning to link it more and more with everyday life.
It has given me a sense of ambition with meditation, and a feeling that with work I really can change things in my life, and in the lives of others too, for the better.
On the basis of the core program I am embarking on the longer training program with Julianna and Danny.

Many thanks for helping me to do all this!

- Charlie Bulbeck
Sharing information as valuable as this is what the internet was created for. You are modern day bodhisattvas: "those that do not aspire to enlightenment purely to free themselves from suffering; they do so out of compassion in order to liberate other sentient beings". 

I hope that you reach around the planet and that this teaching becomes general knowledge. People of all religions will find their faith revitalized if they practice these teachings. Thank you Julianna, for an excellent presentation of your knowledge and to Shinzen for the creation of such a simple but profound way to practice.
- Angel Puente
This course exceeded my expectations! I've taken several other courses online, and this one nails it in some key areas:

1. Dashboard - The dashboard is clearly laid out, pleasing to the eye, uncluttered and easy to understand and navigate. 

2. Videos - The animations and audio are clear and crisp throughout, with consistent quality from 1st chapter to the last. Julianna's pacing and intonation is easy to follow, pleasant, and holds my interest. Each one is packed with information and clear, concise explanations that are accompanied by text. For me this is visual reinforcement of what I'm hearing. 

3. Quizzes - The quizzes drill you in each chapter immediately after each video lesson. Imaginative questions or scenarios invite you to think deeply about each question, and discourage rushed answers. Also, subtle variations in terminology or questions could trip you up if you read quickly. Comprehension of each lesson is thoroughly tested. 

4. Discussion/Q&A Area - There is a discussion/Q&A area in each chapter, which keeps the discussion focused on the topics relevant to the chapter. Julianna, who is the moderator, addresses comments and questions in a timely manner and with warmth, friendliness, and encouragement. 

Although I have completed the course, I've found it that it contains enough depth and interesting information to review again and again. Also, as I delve into a daily practice, I anticipate returning to the discussion areas that are related to any observations, challenges, or questions that may arise. 

In conclusion, I'm so psyched that this course is online, and that I'm fortunate enough to have discovered it! I anticipate using the system in various ways, experimenting with a spirit of exploration and I look forward to additional courses in the Unified Mindfulness Teacher Training System.
