Leverage Emotional Well-Being for Peak Performance & Productivity

We live in an increasingly negative and distracted world. We are not able to focus, and we get triggered by negative feedback easily.

Many of our responses are reactionary and not based on conscious thinking and this impacts our productivity, performance, and well-being.

As Muslims, we know that consciousness, awareness, and mindfulness of Allah سبحانه وتعالى (i.e. Taqwa) is at the heart of our faith. Yet, many of us lack the practical skills to practice Taqwa in order to regulate our emotions and redirect negative thinking towards calmness and contentment, especially in our VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world.

The Productive Muslim Mindfulness Masterclass will help you develop the practical knowledge and skills to regulate your emotions and feel empowered, present, and have more peace of mind across all areas of your life.
