Heartful Communication


About The Event

Date: February 23-24, 2019 @ 10:00 – 17:00

Venue: Cambridge Muslim College, 14 St. Paul’s Road, Cambridge, CB1 2EZ, UK

In a time of hyperconnectivity but often superficial connectedness, in which so many suffer from loneliness and demands on our time seem ever-growing, it is necessary to take stock and reconnect with this essential part of the Islamic tradition.

Building upon the successful Spiritual Wellness and Mindful Resilience program held at the CMC in April 2018, this two-day program 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.

The program will be led by Abdallah Rothman, who will deliver the teachings in a combination of lectures, discussions, interactive experiential exercises, and small break out groups, assisted by trained alumni of Ta’leef Collective’s Refining the Core Program.

By the end of the program, participants will:

+ have an understanding of authentic relating and how to foster it
+ be better equipped to honor the pivotal importance of mindful relating for Muslims
+ learn tools to develop self-awareness in their relating to others through mindfulness practice and interactive workshops
+ understand and be able to implement active listening
+ feel more comfortable with vulnerability – theirs and that of others
+ be acquainted with the idea of skillful self-disclosure
+ have a better understanding of and be able to identify obstacles to authentic relating
+ understand the importance of our relationship to self and how this affects our relationship with God and others


Abdallah Rothman is a Licensed Professional Counsellor with 15 years’ experience as a practicing counselling psychologist working with individuals, families and young people…
