15 CE credits are available to psychologists and other mental health professionals. We suggest checking with your state licensing board to confirm they will accept credits from APA approved sponsors before taking the program.
Program Description:
Foundations is an introductory, self-paced online training program designed to teach participants how to guide both groups and individuals in mindfulness practice. Mindfulness is a research supported practice for managing stress and improving well being.  

As an approach, Unified Mindfulness emphasizes the development of specific attention skills and the course will focus on teaching the technique of See, Hear, Feel. This technique enables people to practice mindfulness while seated in stillness as well as in daily life. It also shows people how any experience can be an opportunity to develop mindfulness skills. This can increase their practice opportunities and empower them with greater choice about what to focus on, to develop their skills.

In over 10 hours of video, mindfulness teacher Julianna Raye will provide an introduction to the theory and practice of the Unified Mindfulness System. The course will include demonstration videos of Julianna teaching the technique in both group and individual formats. Participants will learn how to teach effectively—sharing concepts clearly, speaking from experience, guiding meditations, and responding to a range of questions.  

Participants also get an overview of meditation research by reading Altered Traits: Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind, Brain, and Body by Daniel Goleman and Richard Davidson. The package of lecture/demonstration videos and reading will provide students a strong foundation in teaching mindfulness practice to anyone, regardless of their personal beliefs.  

This program is appropriate for individuals who wish to deepen and share mindfulness practice and is particularly well suited to mental health professionals interested in an effective and practical approach to integrating mindfulness into their work.

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."

I asked Julianna Raye to design and deliver an official Unified Mindfulness teacher training program. 

I’m delighted with the program she has created, working in concert with senior members of our community and under my continuing oversight. It’s a comprehensive, robust and refined support structure that any individual at any stage of practice can lean on to go deeper in their insight and ability to share mindfulness practice with others. 

In my way of thinking, Julianna is ideally qualified for the job of creating teachers who can serve and heal this world. She takes my geek speak and makes it sing."
Shinzen Young
Unified Mindfulness Is...
a system of meditation that's easily researchable by science, with clear terminology and rigorous precision around concepts and procedures.

Developed over 50 years by Shinzen Young, U.M. is so precise and dependable, that revered institutions like Harvard Medical School, Carnegie Mellon, the University of Vermont and Vanderbilt use it as the basis for their research on meditation and its effects in the realms of neurosciences, psychology, clinical sciences and the overall well being of society. 

A direct result of this research and precision is that the process of learning and teaching mindfulness has been thoroughly systemized in a way that makes it accessible to anyone interested.  

The Unified Mindfulness system is a comprehensive, robust and refined support structure that any individual at any stage of meditation practice can rely on to go deeper in their insight and their ability to share it with others. 

Unified is also a secular form of meditation, which means it's not religious in any way so anyone, of any faith, can do it. 

It provides an algorithmic, interactive framework inspired by Western methodologies for the key elements of Eastern contemplative traditions.   

In short, it's the merging of the best of the East with the best of the West.
 A Closer Look At Foundations
Foundations is a 100% online, interactive and self-paced learning experience. You'll learn how to guide both a group and an individual using the "See Hear Feel" technique by mastering the "Ten Tasks of Teaching Mindfulness."

It's hosted on our cloud-based learning platform, so you can access the training from a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone - 24/7. 

Designed using the latest research on learning methodologies, Foundations is a comprehensive training program designed to make the training fun, intuitive and effective for everyone.
New to the Unified Mindfulness System?
If you have experience in other contemplative practices, or even if you're brand-new to mindfulness altogether, we've included our CORE training program inside your Foundations student dashboard.  

The CORE will introduce you to the terminology and the basic concepts of the UM system, so you can dive right into Foundations with a baseline understanding of the framework.
You're also encouraged to share this free CORE training with your clients so they have a solid introduction to the Unified Mindfulness system as well.
Certificate of Completion
As Unified Mindfulness (UM_HUB LLC) is an American Psychological Association approved sponsor of continuing education for psychologists and other mental health professionals, you'll receive 15 Continuing Education credits acknowledging completion of the Foundations CE training.

You'll also have the opportunity to Unified Mindfulness Certification of Completion acknowledging 30 hours of training in the Unified Mindfulness Teacher Training Program.

As Foundations is a pre-requisite for the advanced teacher training track at Unified Mindfulness, the Foundations Certificate of Completion will enable you to continue in the U.M. teacher training program should you choose to do so.

And while Foundations will give you everything you need to skillfully introduce mindfulness meditation to both groups and individuals, we feel it's important to stress what the Foundations training IS NOT...
  •  It's not an advanced certification in teaching mindfulness
  •  It's not an automatic endorsement of you as a teacher
  •  It's not a magic pill that instantly makes you a seasoned mindfulness teacher
  • Streaming videos available 24/7 on any device so you can watch when it's convenient for you
  • Printable Quickstart Guide so you can dive right into the course material
  • Interactive quizzing to enhance your retention of the material (and make it fun too!)
  • Certificate of Completion from Unified Mindfulness upon successful completion of the course
But Foundations is a first-of-its-kind virtual training that empowers anyone, regardless of your meditation or mindfulness experience, to lead either a group or an individual in mindfulness meditation…and take you deeper into your own practice while you do.
"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.

In gratitude, 
Julianna Raye
This training is one of the best online education experiences I’ve ever seen. It is both rigorous and fun, profound and practical as well as accessible and clear. You would be hard pressed to find something better!

See, Hear, Feel is one of the most useful, powerful, and flexible mindfulness methods I know.   

I teach this method to my executive students who then apply it to their business meetings, commutes and other ins-and-outs of their daily lives.   

What they find is they have greater calm, clarity and objectivity to take effective leadership action in chaotic situations. 

They are also better able to make more moments productive and worthwhile, when before these moments would have simply been wasted time and energy.  

What thrills me the most is that they discover a previously unappreciated richness, enjoyment and satisfaction that had eluded them. They rediscover and connect to what makes their life meaningful."
