Workshop: Reading your own love story
The mystics of Islam recognise the power and importance of love and longing, placing it at the very heart of the story of human existence and unfolding. Fatimah will share a small selection of writings from the much-loved mystics on this theme and guide an exploration of the essential wisdom offered in the readings and how this might inform and enrich our personal journeys and our engagement with created-ness.
