ACIM announces the ACIM Wellness Coach Program
. The Wellness Coach Program
is built upon the concept of people helping people. Up until the late 1800’s, much of society was agrarian. Living “closer to the land” and in smaller communities necessitated working together. This included all things related to health and well-being. The elders were revered in the community for their wisdom and knowledge. This wisdom and knowledge was passed on to others through community.
ACIM desires to create a similar community. Using the principles of a time often forgotten and melding them with the advances in technology, ACIM has created the Wellness Coach Program. The concept is simple, take the wisdom and knowledge of others and disseminated it throughout the world. While the agrarian society was limited by the borders of their community, we know no such borders today as the internet allows the free flow of information without regard for borders. ACIM Professors are then the elders of the agrarian society giving of their expertise, experience, wisdom and knowledge to all who desire to learn and not just a select few.
Health and wellness care is changing in the United States and across the world. It is becoming more and more institutionalized with greater dependence on the government and corporate entities. Lost in this new order is the person. Since healthcare is now “delivered” to the person, every element of this system can be dictated to the person. When each individual paid the providing practitioner directly, the person had greater rights to demand the services that they needed. Today, the individual possesses no such rights.
Recognizing the growing discomfort and rising anger amongst segments of the populace, ACIM introduces the Wellness Coach Program
in an effort to fill the gap left for many who are unsatisfied with the current direction of healthcare and/or who have a sincere desire to learn more about the body, mind and spirit so that they can better guide their friends and family toward true wellness as we once knew long ago.
The Wellness Coach Program
is conceptually different than other “coaching” programs. First, it is the outgrowth of the ACIM Fellowship. Much of what is taught in the Fellowship will now be available to non-health professionals. Secondly, it is a multi-tiered and multi-dimensional program. This means that the first level of the Wellness Coach Program
provides the student with basic core knowledge about the body, mind and emotions. This first level is called the Core Wellness Coach Program
. All additional levels are built upon this foundation level. In the future, ACIM will offer additional coaching certifications in nutrition coaching, lifestyle coaching, and other types of coaching.
PLEASE NOTE: The wellness coach certifications (Core & Comprehensive) are designed for those individuals working closely with or for an active licensed health professional with doctorate degree. If you are not currently working closely with or for one, please find in your geographic area an active licensed practitioner with doctorate degree (probably MD, DO, or DC or an ND in states which license NDs) who is open minded & with whom you think you could work. Ask the practitioner to “sponsor” you for the ACIM training (they have to do nothing but communicate once with an ACIM representative). If you are not working with an active licensed health professional, you can take the wellness coach course-work for the purpose of gaining knowledge (as an audit), but you will not receive a wellness coach certification. If you have questions about this certification, please email firstname.lastname@example.org .
