February 23 - February 24
How do we foster genuine connectedness? How do we authentically relate to those around us, to our families, to ourselves and to God? How can we be mindful of our interactions and honour the potential for growth in each moment? How do we navigate the difficulties modern life imposes on our interactions?
Building upon the successful Spiritual Wellness and Mindful Resilience programme held at the CMC in April 2018, this two-day programme aims for participants to become better equipped to develop self-awareness in their relating to others, to themselves and to God. Through teaching and breakout groups, participants should gain a better understanding of the inner disposition required to improve self-awareness and a toolkit with which to improve their relating skills. The weekend will have a strong focus on the notion of heartfulness, an Islamically based approach to mindfulness, which underpins the process of becoming more present and effective in our relationships, both horizontal and vertical.
