The Media Line led over twenty years ago in pioneering the American independent news agency in the Middle East, arguably the first in the region. We have always stayed true to our mission: to provide you with contextual sourced and trustworthy news. In an age of fake news masquerading as journalism, The Media Line plays a crucial role in providing fact-based news that deserves your support.

We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

Look out for exciting new additions as we enter 2022.

We thank our loyal readers and wish you all the happiest of holidays.

Meditation, Yoga, & Mindfulness Workshop

Meditation, Yoga, & Mindfulness Workshop

Date and time: Wed, Nov 18, 2020, 5 to 6 pm Arabia Standard Time (UTC+3)

Register here.

An introduction to meditation and mindfulness with an overall focus on health and wellness.

This is a virtual event that will take place on November 18th, 5pm-6pm.

It is open to adults and children (children under 12 must have adult supervision).

The past year has been a challenging one. With all of the changes and adjustments we have had to make, we may have forgotten to take care of ourselves. As a response to these conditions, we have created an online space for people who want to reset and focus on personal wellness.

In this workshop, we want to introduce you to the idea of balancing the energy of “do-ing” with the energy of “be-ing”– and letting go of stress. You will learn to accept how you are feeling, and we will “check in” while following a guided breathing session to calm our nervous system and mental fluctuations.

Four Focuses:

  1. Mindfulness & Meditation
  2. Mindfulness Activity
  3. Sharing and Creating an Intention
  4. Guided Yoga Nidra session


  • Stress Relief
  • Calming the Sympathetic Nervous System
  • Better focus in our daily work and activities
  • Self Care/Healing
  • Inner Peace
