The idea behind the workshop is to share with the people of Edinburgh some of the tools which Islam came with in order to build a strong identity and self-belief which resists the trials and tribulations of this life whether it be: discrimination, hate crime, depression, loneliness, anxiety, poverty, low self-esteem …
The workshop will be a series of interactive sessions taking place Saturday and Sunday the 23rd and 24th January between 2.30pm and 4.30pm.
