Islamic Spirituality, Philosophy and Ethics: An intersection with the Process Oriented Psychology Paradigm

Sharings from her personal experience and current research on the Intersection of Islam and process work, and forward-view prospect of process work applications in Muslim societies around the world

With Ala’ Hammattah, MMedSc., MAPOF.

In the modern era, the Islāmic tradition tends to be spoken of solely in terms of dogma, emphasizing its political, ritual, and legal principles, while neglecting it’s profound spiritual and moral dimensions, and how its utilized to enhance general wellbeing.

Whether we have particular religious and/or spiritual worldviews, it’s essential to adopt an approach where other worldviews are invited. This level of awareness allows us to listen to narratives and get in touch with the human strength questing the purpose and meaning of life.

 

This training will:

  • Provide fundamental knowledge on the dimensions of Islamic philosophy, spirituality and ethics.
  • Explore the work of Muslim scholars in metaphysics, psychotherapy, inner work and meditation practices.
  • Explore interconnectedness and the influence of culture, spirituality, and psychology of Muslim societies. And how process work could be applied in a global context.
