For the First Time Ever, We're Recording

The Life Practice Room Sessions

Get Permanent Access to All 30 Life Practice Room Special Instruction Workshops, 18 Unified Mindfulness Technique Instruction Hours,  2 "AMAs" (Ask Me Anything) with Shinzen Young, and The Daily Unpacks with Julianna Raye...

That's over 50 hours of mindfulness training!

You asked, and we listened.  

The #1 Immersion request we get every year is access to the Life Practice Room (LPR) recordings, and we certainly understand why.   With 20 hours of LPR programming every day, it's basically impossible to attend every Life Practice Room session.  And with the Retreat Room open 24 hours a day throughout Immersion, you're forced to make decisions that lead to you missing parts of the Immersion experience.

Well, not anymore!

This year we're proud to offer you the Life Practice Room recordings.  You'll get all 30 specialized training sessions, 18 hours of Unified Mindfulness technique instruction,  2 "AMAs" (Ask Me Anything) with Shinzen Young, and The Daily Unpacks with Julianna Raye!  

With the LPR recordings, you get the freedom to dive into a more formal retreat experience (if that interests you), or rewatch sessions that were especially meaningful to you...any time you like.

There is one caveat...

Immersion is a 100% live event.  This means, of course, that these recordings are not ready for you yet (because we are still recording them live!)   We anticipate it will take about a week after Immersion 2023 wraps up before we'll have these ready for you.  We'll keep you posted as the timeline progresses and promise to get them to you quickly.

100% of UM's Proceeds Go to the Unified Mindfulness Scholarship Fund. We are also proud to announce that in this collaboration with UM teachers, 50% from the sale of these Life Practice Room recordings will go directly to our teachers for all of their hard work, and the other 50% will go directly to the Unified Mindfulness Scholarship Fund. Shinzen and Julianna have donated their time. This means your purchase will acknowledge UM teachers for the benefits you have received (and will continue to), while also supporting UM learners who need your assistance. And your purchase not only supports our teachers, current and future, but also the relief, fulfillment, growth, and learning of everyone they may teach over the course of their lifetime!

Bring Your Vision to Life: Mindfully Unlock Creativity, Authenticity, and Flow

Campbell Miller and Jessica Lipman

In order to be truly creative and to explore authentically in life and business, we need to have the capacity to emotionally regulate, feel safe, and be self-led.

In this workshop, we will share a UM approach to accessing greater creativity, feeling rooted and secure, and to tuning into the power of imagination in a healing and expansive way. This approach is informed by UM, attachment theory/repair and parts work, designed for moving beyond inner blockages and achieving goals.

Jeremy Toole

hover for description

Finding a quiet place to meditate can be challenging, especially with kids, pets, spouses, noisy neighbors, and traffic outside. So instead, how can we find a way to practice while in active environments with "distractions" all around? Well, maybe things normally considered “distractions“ can be integrated into the practice and/or infused with rest. In this session we will explore the concepts of turning toward, anchoring away, and developing equanimity—in regard to meditating in noisy and active environments—so that we can continue our practice despite the sensory challenges around us.
