The course looks excellent, and I have signed up. I was on two week-long retreats with Shinzen last year (at Niagara Falls) and saw this formulation of Unified Mindfulness taking shape. See-Hear-Feel is a substantial and significant refinement and improvement over Basic Mindfulness, explicitely closer to the way I was using certain parts of the older system anyway. As always with Shinzen, there is some material to learn up-front. I'm looking forward to working through the formal and systematic presentation of it, as it has been years in preparation and months of beta testing.

Is this related to the "Monastic Academy" that was mentioned here a while back? Has both claim involvement of Shinzen Young and Chade-Meng Tan, etc.

The hype is rather more excessive in this case. Framed like an IPO prospectus...

I'm not sure about that, except that I too have heard that Chade-Meng Tan is a student of Shinzen's.

This course is a step in the direction of more formal facilitator certification, for which professionals such as therapists, counsellors, psychologists, doctors, etc. will be able to earn CEU credits for offering mindfulness.

The training is not directly related to the Monastic Academy, but not unrelated either. The lead facilitator of the Unified Mindfulness Online Support group is Danny Morris, a student of Shinzen Young, Soryu Forall, and a former resident at what is now called the Monastic Academy.

Tarver, FYI, the Monastic Academy is the new name for the residential program organized under the Center for Mindful Learning (although they are moving away from that name, too, if I understand correctly) and led by Soryu Forall.
