The Practitioner of Applied Mindfulness Certification is designed for people who want to learn both traditional mindfulness skills and concepts, and how to apply these skills and concepts in contemporary professional practice and leadership contexts.

This is Level 1 of the 3 tier Applied Mindfulness Certifications for Professionals.

It offers a solid foundation to cultivate awareness, focus,  knowledge and practice through mindfulness.

In Level 1you have the chance learn what classical and contemporary mindfulness is, and is not, and how it relates to all other types of meditation. Through attending three, 3-day courses you explore what mindfulness adds to existing psychological tools and approaches, and learn how mindfulness can calm overwhelm and overthinking, manage emotions and life's inevitable challenges.  As people learn to understand and manage their own emotions and those of others, they can transform their relationship with themselves and their communication with others- even under stress.

Whether you are a complete novice or an experienced mindfulness practitioner you will learn some unique new skills, concepts, and ways to apply mindfulness, from Australia's leading applied mindfulness teacher.

Level 1, 72 hours includes:

This certification is designed for you to really experience the transformative effects of mindfulness and equips you with core techniques to manage stress, be present, diminish anxiety and depression, while cultivating kindness and clarity.

Courses run in Adelaide, Melbourne, and Sunshine Coast throughout the calendar year.

Pathway and pre-requisites

All courses include mindfulness practice and theory.  Each offers its own unique content.  For this reason each of the Level 1 courses can be completed either on-site, online or a combination of the two and in any order to suit your personal and professional development needs.  Each course adds a layer of depth, breadth and fluency to your formal and informal mindfulness practice.

A professional and/or leadership background and an appreciation for integrity, vitality, compassion and wisdom provide good grounding for all of the Australian institute of Applied Mindfulness programs.
