Salaam America Giving and Gratitude
The Discover Yourself Workshop was held in Chicago on June 15, 16 and 17, 2012. Azher Quader, Executive Director, Community Builders Chicago (CBC), sums up the experiences of the participants who attended the Workshop.
The Discover Yourself Workshop held last weekend at Northwest Suburban College, Rolling Meadows was a truly thought provoking and soul searching experience for those who attended it. Through 3 days of intense questioning and honest self-realization, the participants were guided to evaluate their long held pet beliefs to determine if they were anchored in what type of “reality”. They were able to understand the nature of inter-personal relationships and the character of conflict. They were able to see the relevance and importance of paradigm shifts in breaking down the barriers of misunderstandings and opposing view points. And they were able to appreciate the potential of acquiring huge dividends of inner peace and personal happiness by letting go of all the weighty baggage of the past that so often keeps us in chains for the better parts of our lives. All this and more, that they were able to understand is actually embedded in the true teachings of the Quran, a guidance that so many recite every day, but follow so infrequently. Sadathullah Khan takes this workshop with a passion and leaves you convinced that there is so much more to life to be gained through giving and gratitude than grudges and greed. This is a life changing workshop and a must for those who are willing to bring about change in their lives. An investment of time that will change the quality of their future for good. We hope many will benefit from this offering in every location where it is being held. We thank Khursheed Mallick of IMEFNA and Ali Niazee of NSC for bringing Sadathullah Khan and his workshop to Chicago.
