WHAT MAKES FULL SPECTRUM MINDFULNESS DIFFERENT FROM THE REST?
Simple. It gets beneath the surface.
Most other approaches to mindfulness allow you to become more conscious of whatever is happening in the moment, helping you bring more awareness to your thoughts, emotions, and surrounding environment as they arise in your consciousness. There are dozens of truly amazing mindfulness techniques out there that truly excel at this, any one of which can become an important part of your own Integral Life Practice.
However, while these traditional techniques do an excellent job of helping you become more mindful of the surface features of your moment-to-moment experience, they have a much more difficult time getting to the deep features of your consciousness — those aspects of your psyche that cannot easily be seen through contemplation or introspection alone, yet exert an enormous influence upon your perceptions, your reactions, and the way you make sense of the world.
WHAT ARE THESE “DEEP FEATURES”?
These are the invisible structures through which you filter all of your experiences. Studied, tested, and verified across all known cultures by some of the world’s greatest psychologists, these deep structures give shape to your thoughts, add color to your emotions, and bring coherence to your identity.

Modern science has shown how your happiness, deep flow states, and even your life purpose are tied to serving something bigger than yourself, which is what unity mindfulness—one of the pinnacle forms of mindfulness—is all about.
Full Spectrum Mindfulness is the very first approach to help you become more familiar and fluent with both the surface features and the deep features of your mind, allowing you to expand your awareness to the innermost depths of your being.
Ken Wilber is one of the most important philosophers in the world today. He is the most widely translated academic writer in America, with 25 books translated into some 30 foreign languages. Ken Wilber currently lives in Denver, Colorado, and is still active as a philosopher, author, and teacher, with all of his major publications still in print.
What makes Ken Wilber especially relevant in today’s world is that he is the originator of arguably the first truly comprehensive or integrative philosophy, aptly named “Integral Theory”. As Wilber himself puts it: “I’d like to think of it as one of the first believable world philosophies…” Incorporating cultural studies, anthropology, systems theory, developmental psychology, biology, and spirituality, it has been applied in fields as diverse as ecology, sustainability, psychotherapy, psychiatry, education, business, medicine, politics, sports, and art.
