Event description

Description

At MAX Mentors, we believe that being Muslim means balancing deen and dunya. And we believe that balance comes from the right sort of self care, which includes time for spirituality and community. We believe this is the foundation for true resilience.

Join us for a realistic discussion and a reflective workshop exercise on how to find balance by identifying our individual strengths, cultivating meaningful relationships with ourselves and others, and redefining our deeper sense of purpose for ourselves.

This event will be the first of its kind where Dr. Tayyab Rashid, a licensed clinical psychologist - with more than 15 years of experience in mental health - will walk us through a reflective exercise to learn the art of building resiliency through an evidence-based and pragmatic approach.

A conversation with him will be a lasting one. Do not miss your chance to uninterrupted time with Dr. Rashid and an opportunity to engage in a workshop he’s delivered all across the world.


Note: ONLY current Mentors or Mentees part of MAX Mentors program will be refunded their ticket purchase if they attend the event.

Note: If there is anyone who is finding the ticket cost to be a barrier from attending this event, please contact us at maxgala.mentors@gmail.com.
