What our graduates say

ACMM Student Dean Rossi

This is not just another course, it is a wonderful life changing adventure. 

The team at ACMM are wonderfully supportive and encouraging all the way through. It is run in a very professional manner and yet you are made to feel as though you are part of a large family.”

Learning the wealth of knowledgeable information and techniques that the meditation and mindfulness course and electives has to offer is definitely worth it for anyone who is into mindfulness.”


Elective Subjects

Customise your meditation and mindfulness teacher training study path with our specialised electives

I was incredibly impressed and enthused with the structure, research, and training the school offers, and particularly the high quality of the teachers and mentors. Modern meditation has the opportunity to draw on both millennia of traditional religious meditation methods, and modern scientific and psychotherapeutic research. The ACMM shows how effectively we can draw from both.


By session 7 I was guiding meditations for friends, without a script, and felt completely at ease.


I am now nearly half way through the course and it has helped me gain employment in a primary school as the Principal was thrilled to see this on my resume.


I felt supported throughout the course. The skills and techniques have taught me to write & guide meditations and also have given me confidence to be wholly myself.
