Unified Mindfulness stands unequivocally with the Black Lives Matter movement and for the rights and dignity advocated for by BLM. To help bring about lasting change, we are committed to supporting inner work that directly addresses bias, working toward a more diverse community, and opening ourselves to continued learning of all the ways we may support a future that does not discriminate.

At this moment in history, the systemic racism at the heart of so much continued injustice in America has yet again been revealed for all to see. We hope that, at long last, the light of this current revelation shines so brightly it helps illuminate, penetrate, and dissolve the deeply rooted ideologies, beliefs, fears, actions, aggressions, ignorance, hatred, and violence that have perpetuated an ongoing cycle of tragic consequences for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in the United States. As we mourn the murder of George Floyd and look for ways to counter the entrenched norms that led to his undeserved and untimely death, the events unfolding in its wake serve as an acute reminder of how far we have to go, yet also of the possibility for true change. Our efforts must be vigilant and consistent.

We hope that through this shared endeavor, we will all be lifted up as one global community, to join together in a collective vision of respect, equality, dignity, and love. As an organization, Unified Mindfulness is dedicated to seeing this vision through, not just in words but with our actions.

Here are some immediate steps we are taking:

  • We are exploring avenues to establish a scholarship fund to create greater diversity in the UM community.
  • Ten percent of all revenue in UM-HUB for the month of July will be donated to the newly established scholarship fund to promote diversity by supporting underserved communities.
  • We hosted a live CE event on the topic of racial justice with Rhonda V. Magee, who is an expert in that field. In August, we are planning to launch the home-study, continuing education version of that course. We hope this will be a wonderful opportunity for more people to explore themes of cognitive bias that show up around racial justice.

We will be continually updating this page as more steps are finalized.
