Seham has studied the scholarly work, and continues to closely follow, of Dr. Jon Kabat Zinn, founder of the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program, Dr. Mark Williams, the co-creator of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, and Dr. Kristin Neff, co-creator of Mindful Self-Compassion. Her teaching style stems from the inspirational work of aforementioned academics, in addition to Thich Nhat Hanh, Dr. Jack Kornfield, and Eckhart Tolle. Her classes are applicable to everyday mindfulness, maintaining a secular approach, to make practice more accessible to diverse lifestyles.
While Seham has been a dedicated yogi since 2010, she was introduced to mindfulness as a practice in 2014. Already having a B.A Psychology, mindfulness proposed a new method for cognitive and behavioral change through emotion regulation, self-awareness, and other mediums. While psychiatry has demonstrated certain benefits to the use of medication for psychological difficulties and pain management, she found the applications of mindfulness to be a more holistic approach by tapping into internal resources and accessing skills that are embedded within ourselves.
Seham has conducted mindfulness workshops abroad for teachers, school counselors, and the general public. She currently works at the Dallas Yoga Center as the Assistant Manager of Mindfulness Programming and is dedicated to bringing the best mindfulness practices to organizations and schools.
