Week 1: Introduction to Mindfulness
The page that follows is the translation of MiA Module 1. This English version is for our friends and donors to have a firsthand taste of our work, both in content and in style. We do hope you will enjoy looking around, reading, experiencing and noting the trauma informed design and metaphors chosen. Please note: there are some differences here - In the English version, for the meditations which are recorded and meant to be listened to, we have provided only transcripts. Furthermore, only the first of our eight modules will be available in English, as it is important for us, in the time being, to direct our resources specifically to the Arabic content. All that said, we would love to hear your feedback!
Welcome and congratulations! You've just made your first step towards more peace of mind. We're excited to share with you our very first module. To begin, please make sure you are in a quiet space, where you can read and/or listen with ease, for at least 15 minutes. We suggest using simple headphones! And maybe you would like to have a notebook and pen handy (though not a must). Please download and read the following document before proceeding to your first recorded meditation. Let's begin!
