Ongoing Access to the Dwell App

This internship program is app-based and part time to build your own online course & coaching Ministry.

THis sounds like me

After 20-years of contemplative practices, and 10+ years of academic study & ministry, I decided to innovate a way to hybrid my contemplative teachings. I've pretty much figured out what works & what doesn't. This internship program goes beyond teaching you more head-knowledge about healing trauma. It takes that information and applies both to your own personal healing work to then more efficiently serve others through your own course. 

Why trust me??

OK, but who is this chick?

a guidebook for our journey together

"I would highly recommend a reiki class or session with Amanda to help you spiritual growth. She has a unique gift 

Of Gently Asking The Questions That Help Someone Go Deep Inside Themselves...A Training With Amanda Also Helped Heal Me On A Spiritual Level. I Felt A Sense Of Calm And Clear Direction. I've been seeing Amanda as a student client since 2016 and we worked together in 2003.

The Anointed Internship is unique because the focus is on your ministry

It connects you to a guide

Other courses give you a false dichtomoy: they'll teach you business and life coaching saavy regarding digital marketing and how to build an online course, or they'll teach you how to become an advanced healing teacher. I've never seen one program that combines the spiritual components of training with the business acumen you need to put those skills to work to grow impact.

It doesn't matter how many alternative medicine certificates you amass if you don't know how to create an automated and scalable marketing and value delivery system. You'll need an additional budget of about $200/month to finance your own digital ministry app-based, on-demand e-course.

10 years ago, I embarked on my practitioner journey

I was a certified spiritual entrepreneur with nothing more than an office-space, a business card, and website. Little did I realize how the world of working as a digital nomad attending online school for 10+ years would mold the future of the online course creation world. It's not enough to want to build a course. It's also not enough to be just another hippy with a dream. You need both to make real impact.

i can help because i've been there

but nowI know how to help!

Let's make this easy

Still Not Sure?

Cancel at anytime. This internship has no contract or commitment. Simply make your payment for the month to continue onwards with the journey. Not a great fit? No problem! Either of us can cancel at anytime.

ohh, gimme!

Frequently Asked Questions

No. I only teach my Reiki trainings through my two programs: Called and Anointed. If you want to learn Reiki without focus on the Christian part of it, I highly recommend you visit the International Center for Reiki Training to take class with a licensed Reiki Teacher instead. My focus is Christian reiki, yoga-therapy & herbs.

We will absolutely use the tools of yoga-therapy in your personal counseling work, the yoga-therapy app of contemplative practices, and the required readings. This is more of a professional yoga business development course. The reiki training hours do not count towards yoga business course hours.

Meditation teachers are largely unregulated. Anyone can include meditations in their book, retreat, or class nowadays. That said, meditation is a modality of yoga therapy. You will learn enough tools of meditation in Called and Anointed to call yourself a Meditation Teacher, but you do not have to take the course to be one.

No. This internship is potentially triggering as we work through you trauma ministry process. Because our focus is relational trauma, there's a possibility that our own relationship issues will arise in the process. Therefore, you are not bound by contract and neither am I. You only need to fill out your waiver.

You will become certified as a Christian Contemplative Teacher (CCT) with the ability to put those initials behind your name. This is not an accredited program. You will not 'work' for me at all. Instead, we will work together to launch your own brand of Christian spirituality and healing online course & coaching program.

If you do not want to take this material and create your own unique brand, let me know in the application. Those who are certified to teach my program are called Christian Contemplative Trainers. They have rights to train others in this method through an intellectual property use license agreement. 

No. I am empowering you to create your own brand story based on your unique practitioner trainings, life experience, and desired outcomes. You may use all the tools I've taught you in Called and Anointed, but you may not simply re-created my course which is based on my copyrighted dissertation.

Sometimes. Currently, my offerings are live-streamed, but my goal is to build three Christian meditation retreat centers modeled after Esalen/Kalani with a national franchise of Christian meditation studios. If you're a local, we can meet in person, but I am not currently setup to host guest. Stay tuned!

All are welcome in the Called: Personal Pathway program. In this program, we do need to be in agreement about Jesus, moral ethics, and theology. You are welcome to think for yourself and do your own thing after the training. No one will be policing your personal life or choices once you graduate.

See you inside!
