Alienation: a state of feeling isolated, estranged
It is common for the modern person to feel alone. We may feel as if we live aimlessly, without purpose. This is truly tragic, because according to a long-term Harvard study, the greatest factor that aids longevity is having a “point” or purpose in life. As American Muslim women, what is our purpose in life? How does our religion direct us to live wholesomely? How do factors in society, such as liberal, feminist, and atheist thought challenge the fulfillment of our goals? Join us for a day-long program in which teachers from the Sila Initiative help us to make sense of these important matters.
