Meet Our Community

Meet Lina

A platform that allows me to face my challenges, no matter how big or small.

Welcome to Meet Our Community!

This is a place where we are sharing real-life experiences from Mindfulness.com community members — both as a way to help you feel connected to people all around the world who are on the mindfulness journey with you, and also so you can see how regular, simple mindfulness practices are helping people deal with challenges, increase happiness, and improve their everyday wellbeing.

We’d love to introduce you to Lina, who wrote to us from Iraq. Keep reading to get her full story.

Facing many difficult things at once

2020 was a particularly difficult year. I was living in Lebanon at the time of the Beirut blast. Afterwards, I had to leave Lebanon for work and move to Iraq — leaving behind my mother, who was sick due to complications from her heart and kidney problems.

Stress, fear, worry about loved ones — I was in a very bad place inside, and I needed help.

A source of comfort for all kinds of challenges

A friend shared a post of Cory Muscara’s, and his words resonated with me. That’s how I got introduced to Mindfulness.com.

I like the serenity that Melli O’Brien displays. And lately, I have been following Vidmaya Burch for managing pain; she has such wisdom in her talks.

I like exploring the application and the people on the platform. It is non-invasive and quite comforting for me to listen every night before I sleep, when I am agitated at work, or simply when I am doing daily meditations.

I can always find help

I can always find help through mindfulness practices and micro-practices. I appreciate the fact that there’s no judgment, and the voices of the people on the platform are soothing and compassionate, genuine and understanding.

Continuing to grow

I would like to further explore the other teachings, and I am interested in introducing mindfulness practices to my nephews, who are 9 and 13. This is my next priority.

Now, I know that no matter what I’m going through, I can talk to myself like I would talk to someone I love. I can be my best friend!

Advice I would give to someone starting out with mindfulness is:

Hello friend, this is your space! Start by discovering what makes you comfortable and proceed from there!
