Our dynamic core program offers you three levels of professional certification to suit your needs: PractitionerMaster Practitioner, and International Trainer of Applied Mindfulness.  The AIAM offers you an exciting and enlightening way to become more mindful in your own life, working with and teaching your clients, and /or in your leadership.  You can improve the impact you have as a health professional, educator or leader by understanding mindfulness, cultivating a mindfulness practice, developing calm and clarity and helping those you work with do the same.

The levels of certification are designed to facilitate a layered approach, to support you to build on a foundation and integrate your learning, both

1. Deepening your experience and understanding traditional and contemporary mindfulness skills and philosophy
2. 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, all three levels of Applied Mindfulness Certifications are designed with study modules specific to health professionals, educators, leaders and managers.
