Virtual Intro to the Resilience Toolkit for Muslimahs – English (Cohort 1)

May 4 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm PDT

A 3-Part Virtual Trauma-Informed Workshop for Muslim Women.

Exclusively for Muslim women, this free 3-part workshop helps you learn how to navigate stress and trauma– especially in these challenging times.

Do you feel like you are living in two-worlds, like you’re not doing enough? Are you experiencing rage, grief, heartbreak, survivors guilt, loneliness, hopelessness, exhaustion due to the genocides in Palestine, Sudan, Congo, the displacement in Pakistan/Afghanistan and other current events. Are you struggling with other people’s responses and the impact of Islamophobia? All while carrying past experiences, navigating everyday tasks, and taking care of your loved ones? It’s no wonder you’re overwhelmed. You are not alone.

This space is for you. In this Introduction to The Resilience Toolkit you will discover how to reduce overwhelm and grow resilience using practical body-based tools and your existing Islamic practices (prayer, Qur’an reading, dhikr, etc). Connect with other Muslimahs and get the support you need in this warm, inclusive space. Together we will explore how to sustain care and connection in order to take care of ourselves and our communities.
