What inspired the idea behind Tawazon?
Suna Zoabi-Othman: Tawazon was an idea that developed for a year before it turned into the final product. I got to learn about mindful meditation while driving to work for at least 3 hours every day, and through audiobooks and TED talks. One of the conversations was about mindfulness meditation, and I liked the idea. I decided to do my own research to understand more about brain activity before, during, and after meditation.
I realized that by providing this tool through Tawazon, we could bring positive change in emotional intelligence and the ability to better understand the feelings of oneself and others.
I saw an opening in the market where Arabic content for meditation was needed and filled in that gap. The application is available in app stores, and provides free and paid monthly and yearly subscription services.
