Hi Everyone ! I am Arun Gopal from Southern California. My journey into meditation started when I was around 15 years old. I started meditating primarily to improve my concentration and memory so that I could get better grades ! That did happen so it motivated me to keep practicing and to explore different systems to see what else meditation could do for me.
When I moved to the USA, I was exposed to a whole new range of modalities that combined eastern meditation techniques with western psychology that really made sense to me. In was in one of these explorations few years ago that I happened to come across Unified Mindfulness. My first impression of this system was not good. I felt it was too wordy, too many categories and too much of new terms and definitions. So I moved on to other modalities but I kept getting drawn back to UM again and again. Finally I gave in and I found myself taking the Foundations teacher training course from Unified Mindfulness. Once I started exploring this system in depth, I was amazed at its precision, at its flexibility and how easy it was to bring the practice into your daily life. I went further to take the Level 2 Pathways training and that made a lot of difference to the way I viewed mindfulness personally as well as how I viewed it as a teacher.
In my own personal life, I had been through so much unnecessary suffering, I couldn’t enjoy life even when things were going good ! One of my main motivation in exploring different modalities was to see how I could solve this. This system has made a great deal of difference in this regard and I would like to share this system with you in the hope that it would help you too.
