Want a practice that's designed to support your own personal goals? Get expert guidance from top Unified Mindfulness coaches and a strong, uplifting UM community, and develop a customized practice that's perfect for you.

No more one size fits all!

The U.M. system's strength is in its precision, clear terminology, and adaptive framework that frees you to turn any experience you choose into a transformative meditation practice. 

But what truly makes the system unique is that learning and teaching U.M is a highly interactive process that allows a coach to meet you wherever you're at in your practice. 

Ever wonder "Am I doing this right?" "Should I be doing another technique?" "What does it mean when _______ happens?" "Could I be making more progress?" "How do I know I'm on the right track?" "Why can't I get back to that experience I had?" "How can I stay in that state?" Sometimes it seems like no one could possibly understand, let alone help accelerate your growth from meditation practice.

Ready to go deep? Then it's time to work with a coach.

We invite you to join a coaching program like no other...

As the exclusive certifying organization of Unified Mindfulness coaches, we're excited to offer a one-of-a-kind program that makes connecting with a UM coach for personalized guidance and instruction easy for anyone interested in taking their meditation practice deeper.
U.M.'s Group Coaching program is also a place to connect with Unified Mindfulness community members at all levels of experience - from brand new, to Shinzen himself - in support of one another and of each individual's mindfulness practice. 

This coaching program has been development for over 4 years, because we were determined to:

build a rich learning environment for you to share your experiences, goals and challenges safely and privately.

​provide you with robust DIY resources including a vast library of guided meditations and additional self-paced courses available to you right from Day 1.

have a wide range of highly qualified UM coaches from diverse backgrounds and areas of specialization available to support your practice from the moment you join.

create a personalized coaching program that's customized to your needs and affordable for anyone interested in receiving expert coaching to deepen their meditation practice.

We're happy to say we've checked all those boxes (and more!), and we're ready to invite to join us in this one-of-a-kind program today.

"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.

"There are Five Axioms (or Five Basic Assumptions) that underlie mindfulness as I would teach it, that – when implemented – lead to not logical conclusions but to experiential developments within a person:

Concentration: it is better to have the ability to focus on what one deems relevant and whenever one wants than to lack that ability.

Sensory clarity: it is better to be sensorially clear about what's going on than to be sensorially muddled. 

Equanimity: it is good to be able to not fight with yourself. 

Recycle the reaction: if, as the result of applying the first three axioms, one experiences heavenly, hellish, or bizarre phenomena, then simply reapply to these reactions the first three axioms. 

if you forget the first four axioms, have contact information of a competent guide, contact them, and they will remind you of the first four axioms"
