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.
