Speaker Name: Haya Farah

Title: Work as a Spiritual Practice

Date: June 16, 2021

Time: 6:30 pm DXB time (GST)

ATÖLYE Dubai continues with its guest series Insight Out, featuring creative seekers whose inward explorations have positively impacted the work they put out into the world. Once a month, we invite you into the inner world of a designer, artist or maker to learn about the practices and experiences that have shaped their creative output.


About the Speaker

Haya is a design researcher, space holder, and (aspiring) poet. She currently works as a freelance Arabic design researcher, helping clients in various sectors better understand their users and their design experiences.

What brings her most joy is designing experiences for people to connect heart to heart and explore seeing and being seen, hearing and being heard. As someone who has been on their healing journey for the past few years – she has been exploring how the workplace can be a playground for personal and collective healing.


About the Session

After reflecting on her personal experience as a design researcher, Haya will share her learnings on how work can help us build, or deepen our personal spiritual practice. She’ll be sharing:

  1. How she applied mindfulness tools from her research practice to deepen her self-awareness and interpersonal relationships.
  2. How work mirrors the shadow and light in personal relationships and within ourselves.


Part 1: Listen & Learn

Haya Farah will be reflecting on her personal experiences as a design researcher and sharing her learnings on how work can help us build or deepen our spiritual practice.


Part 2: Reflect & Explore 

The second half of the evening will be interactive. Haya will pair attendees and share an Authentic Relating game for them to play.
