Please support Israeli initiative to offer Mindfulness to the Syrian/Arab communities

An Appeal from the Mindfulness in Arabic Project
The violent war in Syria has displaced more than 6,320,000 people; Now dealing with trauma imprints, insistent memories of war, fear, instability, loss, and uncertainty.Mindfulness in Arabic project is creating an online, self-help, Mindfulness course for refugees.
This innovative course is specially designed, with and for refugees, trauma informed, and culturally sensitive in their own mother tongue. The MiA course provides trauma and resiliency skills, practices that aid in the reduction of stress, rebuild self regulation, and enhance clarity, tolerance and compassion.

Trauma robs us of the present moment; Healing occurs in the present body-mind.

The course is based on the lessons shared with us by leading Mindfulness teachers: Jon Kabat-Zinn, Tara Brach, Christopher Titmuss, Joseph Goldstein, Jack Kornfield, Shinzen Young, Bangor U and more. These lessons have yet to be translated fully, voice-recorded professionally in Arabic, and shared widely – among refugee communities wherever they are.

Help us achieve this now, donate and share our crowdfunding project here:
