We created 2MINDFUL EXPATS just for you

How was the 2 Mindful Expats Program born?

a

Hola! We are Nuño and Miriam, we have travelled the world for over 15 years: Italy, India, Cape Verde… and South Africa. Each one of us had different stories about movings and various cities.

In the middle of March 2020, we entered lockdown and found ourselves physically isolated and far away from our families in Spain. We decided to organise a mindfulness course online, with the aim to create a community that could hold the space for expats like us. We kept connected and breathed mindfully for several weeks. The experience was so transformational and powerful that we decided to unite forces and create the 2MINDFUL EXPATS Program.

I am Miriam Iparraguirre, I left Spain in 2003. I started meditating 4 years ago and it changed my life! I am a mother of two wonderful boys. My passion is to connect people through events (private or corporate), and now also online. In 2Mindful Expats I develope my ability of building community with a smile and connecting with people like you. Expat women, as you, that can feel joy and fulfillment in your daily life.

I am Nuño Aguirre, my journey into meditation and mindfulness started when I was 19 years old. I left Spain in 2003 and since then I became a father and teacher of various Universities online. In 2Mindful Expats I develop my passion of accompanying people on their meditation journey. I know mindfulness helps you to see life from a different perspective, feel more calm, find your own wisdom.

What do the participants say:

Marcela Romo

Mexican, 1 year living in Sevilla (Spain)

“It was very helpful, I learned how to manage better my emotions and also how to have more understanding and taking more care of me. Sometimes you want to give everything to other, but you forget about yourself. I learned how to listen to me, what I need, what to do.

Nuño pushed me to the better, to go further and I loved this… on a very kind way, how to do better, to go further.”

Oriana Franco

US citizen, 3 years living in Johannesburg (South Africa)

“I was so happy that I did it, because he taught us how to meditate, specially in those stressful moments that we could not go out and we didn’t know what to expect from this pandemic. It was really nice to be able to be in a group and I really think it helped me and the other people that did it with me. I would really recommend this to all my friends, so they know what mindfulness is all about, how to control your feelings, how to control your body, and to talk about your feelings, sometimes it is not easy to express. So, I would really really recommend this course”

Kasamba Matekenya

Zambian, 6 years living in Johannesburg (South Africa)

“Before I did the mindfulness course my mind was in hyperactivity. The course help me to realize that I needed to take time to be in the moment… to get to the root of what it’s going on.

The realization that I was often my biggest critic in the way I would speak to myself due to some unwritten expectations that I had on myself…. To be just kind to myself, take a breath and live in the moment… It was nice to realize that some of the things that I was experiencing were not only just me, everybody at some point in time would experience something similar, and I was not alone”

@qasamba

Indian, 4 years living in Johannesburg (South Africa)

“It helped me immensely to deal with my emotions and my anxieties. I will not forget one specific thing that Nuño reminded us : Who put the bar up there? And if we put the bar up there, then it is in our power to lower it. I will always remember the lessons that I learned from this program. I will highly recommend this program to everybody around me”.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need to have previous meditation experience?

No, we start from the foundations of mindfulness. So, if it is your first time, you will learn the basics of a new discipline.

If you are not a first timer, but you have tried to meditate before and didn’t manage to establish a routine, this program is for you. In fact, this is one of the reasons why the course is 6 weeks long  and it is supported by a community.
Even if you have certain experience with meditation, you will certainly benefit from this course. We systematically cover the foundations of mindfulness practice, so will certainly learn a lot.
A beginners mind is always the right mind to approach meditation.

How long do I have access to the course?

You will be able to access the online section (recordings and guided meditations) of the course for one year.
One of our goals is to help you to keep a discipline on your meditation, and we know it is not easy at the beginning. So, in case you need to refocus, you will be able to watch again the videos and recommit to your practice.

Could I really take 2Mindful Expats course if I'm not an expat?

We created 2 Mindful Expats with a global community in mind.
However, in a larger sense, we are all global citizens, so if the content you see here appeals to you, you are welcome to join.
We encourage everybody to integrate Mindfulness practices into their lives, and we love to meet people from all over the world,
also when they plan to stay in their own country.

How is this course different from your presence program?

2Mindful Expats program is focused on a community of expats, with a focus on people who are eager to develop an individual mindfulness practices.
This means meditation and other practices related with awareness.
Maybe you are already a meditator, but would like to introduce some mindfulness tips on your daily routine.

Presence is focused on an individual practice, for people that would like to go further on their established meditation practice.

Is this a religious course?

Although Mindfulness practice stems from a Buddhist context, in this context it is offered in a secular, non-sectarian way.
In its simplest form, it’s about presence, breath, here-and-now. And these are universal qualities that apply to all individuals.
In that sense, it is perfectly compatible with any religion or lack of religion, and also with your own beliefs, whatever these might be.
