Presented by Soban Khalid, Lead Coordinator at Maamawi Mental Health and Counselling

There are hundreds of different tips and techniques that you can use to feel better about yourself while working from home. Many of these techniques are well researched such as exercise and healthy eating. However, we often find that either we are unable to implement them or if we do, the positive consequences of these activities are fleeting. In face of this, while surfing through the current challenge of a pandemic, what is one to do?

There are no quick fixes, however there is a way of being, a certain orientation towards the world that can help us get more in touch with ourselves and find a deeper connection despite the apparent lack of it in our lives given the current situation that we find ourselves in. Through a reorienting of our attitudes from moment to moment, it is possible to find healing and rejuvenation in the here and now. We don’t have to wait. We can find all that we are looking for right here where we sit, stand, walk and live.

In these short 30-minute sessions sprinkled throughout our virtual spring week, you will be given a small feel for the practice of heartfulness that embraces qualities of openness, non-judgement, non-striving, patience, trust and kindness towards oneself foremost and by extension to all others.
