To manage stress, anxiety, and a "busy brain", everyone says meditation helps. You should meditate. You need to calm your brain and center. But how?
Julianna Raye has been training individuals and groups in mindfulness for over 17 years. Currently, Julianna is preparing to launch the official teacher training for Unified Mindfulness - at unifiedmindfulness.com/core. She is also a founding member of the mindfulness app, Brightmind which will be available in the spring of 2017. In addition to her work for Unified Mindfulness and Brightmind, she creates onsite and online mindfulness training for enterprise clients through the Flourishing Leadership Institute. She also privately coaches executives in sales and leadership, celebrities, entrepreneurs and group trains company leaders interested in preventative health care and improving the work environment, through mindfulness meditation. Julianna delivers specific mindfulness strategies most relevant to the individual or company’s needs.
Julianna was drawn to mindfulness over 20 years ago to manage severe anxiety and depression as well as the dramatic emotional ups and downs of life as a professional entertainer. With over 100 weeks of immersive silent retreat training in both mindfulness and zen, Julianna has racked up 12,000 plus hours of formal practice time, rewiring her brain and creating a new normal for herself. In a recent study at UCLA comparing long-term meditators’ brains with non-meditators, the results of Julianna’s MRI led to interviews on ABC, Globo and Reuters news outlets, about the benefits of Mindfulness practice. Unified Mindfulness, has been used in research at Harvard Medical Center (with breakthrough results) and other major research centers. In fact Julianna has just completed a mindfulness workplace research study with noted researcher David Creswell, through Carnegie Mellon. This study was a rare opportunity to design and implement a training program for a mid-size company (Fathom Digital Marketing) while having the results rigorously studied by Creswell’s lab. Very little research on mindfulness has been done in the workplace, so the amount of data collected for this study is unprecedented. Stay tuned for the results analysis which will be completed by March of 2017.
