What is Immersion?

A worldwide, virtual meditation event that you can join any time of day in any time zone for five full days. You'll be guided and supported by our International Unified Mindfulness coaching community and top UM teachers. You'll learn not only seated practice techniques, but also dozens of ways to practice on the go and when you need it most.

What's a Drop-In Meditation Retreat?

It's easy to talk yourself out of a meditation retreat - Just don't have the time, pressing commitments, fear of being trapped in a faraway place with a bunch of weirdos. So, we made it easy to talk yourself into one. A drop in retreat gives you a chance to dip your toe in and get a taste of the retreat without having to commit to the whole schedule. You just do as much as you can, when you can. With a virtual retreat you don't have to worry about disturbing the room. It's a great way to see what it's like, or just get in a little extra sitting than you normally would. Who knows where that will take you one day?  Or, feel free treat Immersion as a 5 day formal retreat.  The choice is yours!

At Any Stage - We’ve Got You Covered.

Whether you're at a beginner, intermediate or advanced level of your meditation practice.


5 times a day we’ll be offering intro classes so you can ask any question you’ve ever had about meditation. By the time Immersion ends you'll have 4 new techniques you can practice any time, anywhere, plus an understanding of how to practice that's clearer than many people with years of meditation experience!


If you’re an intermediate meditator we invite you to come sit with our community of devoted practitioners to take your practice deeper. Instruction and support are there for you if you want or need it. And if you don't, we welcome your presence and honor your practice!


If you’re an advanced meditator come sit in a like minded community. We take training seriously and we’d be honored for you to join us. The Immersion Retreat Room will be a live-streamed, formal retreat space for 5 straight days.

Drop In For As Much Or As Little As You’d Like

And, if you just want to sit with fellow meditators in silence, the great news about an online retreat is that you can mute the room any time. So please, come join us! :) 

Instruction or no instruction.

Beginner to advanced - all are welcome! This is a virtual space for you to experience the UM system, learn new meditation techniques and connect with other others in practice from 2 AM to 10 PM Eastern...for 5 straight days!

Come and go as you please.

We'd love for you to join us for 5 straight days of immersive experience. But we're offering this as a drop in retreat as well, so feel free to drop in and out of sessions as your schedule - and your interest - permits.

And To Push The Envelope Even Further...

In addition to the live-streamed retreat room, you're also invited to join us in a second live-streamed Life Practice room for specialized training sessions, mindfulness workshops, panel discussions, Q&A's, sharing circles, meetups, and more!

Attend Specialized Training, Q&A's, and Panel Discussions Led By Top Unified Mindfulness Coaches... 

In addition to four daily instructional hours, multiple daily Q&A sessions, guided periods of practice in motion, and Shinzen's AMA's, below is a list topics we'll be exploring in our Life Practice Room. ALL of these sessions will be live-streamed, via video. Your participation is requested, so bring your questions!

What Is Unified Mindfulness?

There is no "right way" to meditate. What matters most is that you find a technique that works for you, keeps you motivated, and supports the outcomes you're hoping to achieve.
What makes the Unified Mindfulness (UM) system so special is that for the first time ever, the mechanics of meditation practice have been brought together in a comprehensive, all-encompassing framework.
This framework allows you to understand what's going on when you practice ANY meditation technique.
And once you start to understand the "How To" of meditation, you become empowered to adapt your practice to meet you where you're at, at any time and in any situation. That make UM ideal for practice in daily life.
UM has also been carefully designed with precise terminology which makes learning it - and teaching it - straight-forward and exact.
So while the UM system is not a new way to meditate, it does provide a new way to learn and teach meditation in an interactive format that allows the teacher to meet the student exactly where they are. This interactive teaching approach is something that makes the Unified Mindfulness system truly unique.
While UM's framework makes it possible to pair specific techniques with your personal goals, its precision has also attracted leading labs at institutions like Harvard, Carnegie Mellon and Vanderbilt, which rely on the Unified Mindfulness system for their research into the neurological, psychological and physiological effects of mindfulness practice.  
For the first time in history, science is beginning to understand how meditation practice affects the brain to ease suffering, enhance performance and improve the overall well-being and happiness for those who practice it regularly. We're honored to play a role in helping to connect the dots between modern science and the ancient wisdom of contemplative traditions.
