MiA- Mindfulness in Arabic, is a non-profit organization established to answer a call heard from the Arabic society for culturally sensitive and trauma informed Mindfulness tools, exercises and lessons in Arabic. These are tailored to support a shaken refugee population that carries traumatic experiences of fear, loss, extreme impermanence and violence.
We’re delighted that Juditta, who is the Project Founder and Director of MiA, has offered us a session on Saturday 26th September from 1 to 4 pm.
The event will be both theory and practice and will include:
• background/intro to TSM (Trauma Sensitive Mindfulness),
• Issues around working with Mindfulness for Trauma in general and specific issues that come up when working with refugee trauma: what teachers/therapists/aid workers should be careful of.
• Adapting Mindfulness to different cultures
• Diversity in Mindfulness
The charity does amazing work with refugees, often living in camps, having escaped war torn countries and persecution.
Juditta is offering her time for free and there is no charge for this session. If you wish to donate to the MiA charity you can do so on their website which is https://www.mindfulnessinarabic.org/
If you wish to donate to the Friends of Bangor
We look forward to you joining us on the day.
