About MiA

For the first time ever, a full 8-week free-of-charge mindfulness course in Arabic will be launched online, providing Arabic-speaking refugees vital tools for easing the trauma of facing and fleeing violence.

We have been asked to manifest a Train the Trainer course for teachers and facilitators from the Arabic population. This is a first of its kind; to support our online Mindfulness in Arabic course, interactively, and to support courses in Refugee centers in vivo in the Middle East, Europe, and over the net. Through offering mindfulness teachings in their native tongue, we hope to support a sense of clarity and heart in their daily life challenges; transition, communication and decision making in the foreign unknown.

Above is a MiA testimonies video supporting MiA’s cause and explaining how this program helped them.

Mindfulness in Arabic, in addition to doing critical community support work, is setting an inspiring example for all who are doing mindfulness training work anywhere in the world today. You are demonstrating how mindfulness is not just for the privileged few but for everyone, and how it serves as a foundational skill enabling our world’s most challenged communities to work with stress and build resilience. I’m particularly inspired by your methodology of training Arabic community leaders as program facilitators and thus showing how mindfulness respects the inherent wisdom in all human beings no matter their race, color, or culture. Please keep up this important work; it’s important for those you serve and also important to inspire others throughout the world to follow your example.
