Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness Workshop

        We ask for a donation at the sum between $30-$200, as a sliding scale, according to your ability and generosity.

MiA, Mindfulness in Arabic for refugees and displaced people, invites you to a zoom workshop with Ms. Juditta Ben-David MA SEP, the founder of our MiA program.

Juditta is a seasoned psychotherapist and international lecturer in the fields of Mindfulness and Mindfulness-based interventions, Trauma Therapy, Somatic Experiencing and Resiliency building. She is a senior certified mindfulness teacher, MBSR & MMTCP, a senior therapy supervisor, and a cross-cultural group facilitator.


Juditta's experience is with refugees and crisis areas since 2005 in various parts of the world. Trained counselors, medical professions, and grass root women groups, transgressing barriers of language and faith.

Currently, she has embarked on a PhD research project with Jena Center for Reconciliation Studies, Germany.


     The purpose of this TSM MiA workshop is to encourage and support humanitarian relief workers, therapists, coaches and/or educators to get acquainted and use trauma-sensitive mindfulness, and trauma-informed material in their groups, communities/clinic work; as it is of utmost importance when working with refugees. 


     This deep and gentle process leads to a sense of calm and connection to ourselves and others. Finding calm in the midst of chaos, and retaining connection, is truly a necessary tool these days, especially for refugees and displaced people; as well as to those who care for them.
