Welcome to the healing space.

Ramadan is a time for us to heal our souls from the weight of this world. It is a time for us to recuperate, reconnect and reinvigorate our faith, our minds and our bodies. It also flies past, and we often find ourselves getting to the end, grateful, blessed and tired, but praying for more time. 

We wanted to create a space on this site which can be used to help us to heal productively: to make the most of the time we have, using insights from across a wide variety of traditions: scientific, mindful and spiritual. To help us develop habits that enable us to retract from the world and grow into our faith, and into a relationship with Allah swt and His Messenger with tranquillity and ease which we can take from this month on into our lives beyond. 

We hope to share practices which have helped us, and we would love to hear what has helped you! So please share your ideas so we can bring the community together to share this space where we can all take a breath and be with each other, ourselves and with God.
