Training of Trainers 

...The very first Arabic training of Mindfulness Facilitators is on its way

As MiA finishes launching our first 8-week online course for refugees, we are also developing a 3 stage Training of Trainers (ToT) for diverse Arabic speaking Mindfulness Practitioners.  The first Arabic-language training of its kind, it will prepare Arabic speaking professionals to facilitate MiA’s unique Trauma and Culturally Sensitive Mindfulness curriculum. The trainers will be the human backbone of MiA, embodying our online content, offering day-to-day support in refugee camps and Arabic speaking communities, teaching basic Mindfulness courses in Arabic in the field, as well as providing sorely needed trauma-informed Mindfulness support to Humanitarian personnel.

The three stage program will include:

  • Mindfulness Basics: the Why and Where from a Facilitators’ view

  • Trauma and Resiliency: theory and basic skills for Trauma-Sensitive teaching

  • Teaching skills: Lesson planning, understanding group dynamics, motivation and more…


All these tools are based in a Mind-Body approach with somatic cues, psycho-physical understandings, emotional intelligence, and of course years of Cross Cultural work within Arabic speaking communities across the Middle East.

Partner With MiA

In addition to our online course, MiA- Mindfulness in Arabic partners with refugee centers, humanitarian NGOs, social workers, aid counselors and academic researchers in Europe, Turkey and the Middle East. 


We offer specific and unique expertise in Trauma-Informed, Culturally Sensitive Mindfulness from Mindfulness and Trauma experts and native Arabic Mindfulness practitioners from the Middle East. 

If you would like to collaborate with us, please send us word:


  • MiA offers professional support and training to refugee aid workers and humanitarian counselors, in Trauma & Resiliency skills.

We offer group workshops ranging from 2-6 days. These include hands-on learning: the nature of Trauma (its effect on the mind-body, brain and nervous system, behavior), followed by Trauma & Resiliency skills including Somatic Experiencing, CRM, Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness, as well as the specifics of working with refugees and/or in cross-cultural settings. 


  • We offer the opportunity to partner with us on our MiA Mindfulness Pilot Program.

Our Pilot-Program is designed to introduce our 8-week online course to groups of Refugees with additional in-person support. The program is designed to accompany refugees through their progress, and also provides MiA with the opportunity to expand on academic research on the effectiveness of our course. 

The Pilot Program is based in our 8-week online course and features 2 weekends (beginning and end) of in-person facilitation, along with virtual support meetings for the 6-week interim duration of the course.  Counselors and center teachers have found this very helpful in regard to their ability to further implement and follow the course.


  • Private supervision, virtually or in-person, for humanitarian aid workers, mindfulness teachers, and professional therapists and counselors - can be arranged. Based on our long expertise in the field, from Arabic, English, German, and Hebrew speaking professionals.


We are also open to learn from you! If you have created Mindfulness, Yoga or other mind-body curriculums in Arabic, especially for refugee populations, or Trauma-informed, we would love to hear from you and explore avenues, if fitting, to incorporate new materials into our programs. 


Get in touch with us at to inquire about partnering with us! 


We look forward to hearing from you.
