My experience learning Dynamic Mindfulness from Amanda was absolutely seamless, and provided a complete mindset shift on how I personally view and process trauma. Her expert approach, passion, and knowledge base around mindfulness practice is evident, and applicable to a wide spectrum of individuals and learning environments. Amanda possesses an innate ability to connect the information with tactical ways in which it can be applied to our daily lives.

Gaining this knowledge, coupled with the amazing energy and obvious gift that is Amanda Muhammad, has been an eye opening experience in so many ways. I am immensely grateful for her talents, and sheer mastery of the art form of mindfulness. Her ability to connect with humans and reroute perspectives regarding distress is apparent, and so necessary in this world today.

I am very excited to say that my patients are benefiting from the training. I had a patient call me the other night in tears, a bit on the hysterical side. It took me a good 30 minutes but was able to help her breath till she stopped crying and was actually able to speak and then I was able to redirect her focus and she was able to then talk rationally and focus on a plan of action for the evening. I am very excited to continue to implement into my daily treatments with patients and looking forward to applying it along with some DBT therapy groups.

Amanda’s ability to build a sense of community within 6 to 12 hours of training speaks to the intentionality that she has before you even step through the doors of the training facility.

From registration to the presentation, she handles each of her clients with integrity and professionalism.

The Dynamic Mindfulness Teacher Training was absolutely amazing! Amanda is dedicated and passionate about sharing her knowledge and experience of mindfulness practices. She seeks to empower others with tools that will help them manage stress, increase resilience and practice self-care consistently. Amanda’s personality (personable & humorous) is displayed as she teaches others about mindfulness. You will leave her presence strengthened in your abilities. I have been equipped with the information to expand my personal and professional practice of mindfulness.
— AUNDREA T., GROWTH AGENT

I really liked Dynamic Mindfulness Training. I think it is so empowering when people realize they have some element of control, especially because by the time I see them they feel like life is out of control. I believe it will also go hand in hand very nicely with EMDR because safety and stability is the groundwork before anything else can be done. DM is one way to achieve this.

It’s easy to put things into practice with an awesome teacher! You gave us skills, education, and information that we could apply, well as in my case, the same day! Great teachers produce great students who have the potential to become great teachers.
