There are many ways to meditate, and no way is really better than another. What matters most is that you find techniques that work for you, motivate you, and support the outcomes you're hoping to achieve.
Unified Mindfulness is not a new form of meditation, but it is unique. The UM system has been carefully crafted with clear terminology to provide a very precise, thorough framework for meditating. This supports your ability to learn any meditation technique at all. It also helps you apply meditation to specific situations that are meaningful to you - like being more present with your kids, or managing your stress levels at work.
UM's clear terminology empowers you to communicate about the experiences you have while meditating. This significantly reduces confusion and helps optimize your practice time by fostering clarity and making it easier to give and receive feedback - which ultimately makes it easier to practice and teach meditation, leading to better results.
At its core, Unified Mindfulness helps you identify and develop 3 essential attention skills. UM "unifies" all meditation practices by showing how they all develop the same core skills. UM provides a universal language to describe those skills, methods of development, and shared meditative experiences across all traditions, worldwide.
