Australian Institute of Applied Mindfulness

We are an educational institute devoted to mindfulness training, and professional certification in Applied Mindfulness.  We offer a range of seminars, courses and retreats for you to learn both traditional mindfulness and its' applications in contemporary life.

  1. You can attend an individual course or retreat as a stand alone, OR
  2. You can register for one of the certification programs.

Our core program is the International Trainer of Applied Mindfulness Certification.  It offers you an exciting and enlightening way to become more mindful in your own life, and in your practice when working with and teaching your clients, and in your leadership. While most people show interest in the full International Certification, this dynamic program offers you three levels of certification to suit your needs:Practitioner, Master Practitioner, and International Trainer.

The levels of certification are designed to facilitate a layered approach, to support you to build on a foundation and integrate your learning, both deepening your experience and understanding traditional mindfulness skills and philosophy, and broadening the contexts in which you apply and teach mindfulness.

Informed by global research and practice in mindfulness, neuroscience, positive psychology, clinical practice, functional medicine and leadership theory, the International Trainer of Applied Mindfulness Certification is designed with study modules specific to health professionals, educators, leaders and managers. 

When you register for a certification program, you are automatically registered for the courses or retreats relevant to that level, plus complimentary bonuses to help ensure you have the best opportunity to develop your professional expertise.  These include: master classes, mentoring, supervision, and study modules.
