The Rhoda Foundation invites you to an all-inclusive weekend program with Hamdi Ben Aissa on May 17-20, in Brantford, Ontario. 

In the heart of spring and season of renewal, join us in an intimate and meditative setting as we delve into The Keys to Understanding the Divine Revelation.

Together we will study how to approach the Divine Word and access its deeper meanings. We invite you to develop a relationship with the Eternal Present through the Quran and learn how to enter into dialogue with the gift of Sacred Revelation.

Themes will include:

  • How can I develop and cultivate a healthy relationship with the Qur'an?
  • What are the deeper meanings of several key surahs of the Qur'an?
  • What are the challenges of translations and how do I approach them?
  • What dimensions of my being must I develop to be able to cultivate this relationship with the Sacred Word?

 This retreat calls to...


✓ every soul in search of meaning, aspiring to live their life in a deeper way

✓ anyone seeking to understand Islam as a path to personal and spiritual development

✓ anyone seeking to discover what the message of the Qur'an brings, beyond political or cultural ideologies 

✓ those wishing to meditate in a peaceful environment away from the distractions of city life

✓ supportive company of brothers and sisters on the path of spiritual growth 

“Every human being should have the opportunity to access the Qur’an and the jewels of its vast ocean.”
