Course Details


5 Self-Paced Session | 3 hours | Lectures + Guided Meditation Exercises



What is the spiritual training behind fasting? How does the spiritual dimensions of fasting differ from most other forms of worship, such as prayer? And what connection does fasting have to breathing?

In this short self-paced class, we will dive into the deeper spiritual practice of fasting and understand Ramadan as a spiritual exercise to help us receive and host the Divine. We will learn how "saum" is much more than bodily fasting, and how breathing well is closely linked to fasting, as both are integral tools for hosting and receiving the Divine.

This course aims to transform how you engage in your relationship with the Divine and is especially important for those open to seeing Ramadan as a spiritual development training exercise.
