MENTAL HEALTH ft. Rania Atalla
What is anxiety? Why are emotions important to understand? Is FOMO real? Psychotherapist and mental health specialist Rania Atallah talks to us about her practice and the challenges that could arise from not understanding one's emotions. Emotions are our operating system, learning to deal with them effectively is key to mental stability.
DISSECTING BLACK LIVES MATTER ft. Karma Malhas - E.6 - Meidan AlTahlil
From her personal experience, Karma Malhas speaks from the heart on the Black Live's Matter movement and why it should be everyone's movement. The Black Live's Matter movement is an opportunity to speak about all injustices. As Arabs, there are many acts of inherent racism within our society, this is an opportunity for us to reflect back on our habits, and call out the vices.
UNCOVERING GEMS ft. Ahmed Younis
One of Ahmad's favorite professors from his time at Chapman University, and a previous Principal Deputy Coordinator at the US Department State, Dr. Ahmed Younis is Meidan AlTahlil's latest guest. In his academic work, Dr. Younis focuses on the Architecture of Social Change through entrepreneurship and youth employment. Meidan's dear friend, Ahmed, also has work on Islamic Reform for Social Change, Global Muslim Public Opinion, and Practice and Policy (or what he says in our episode, the World and the Word).
We had the pleasure of picking his brain for 50 minutes, and we hope you enjoy it too. Tune in!
RAMADAN, COVENANTS & THE SOUL
What is Ramadan? And what does it help us do? Are there any other forms of fasting, and can they provide the same benefit? In this episode, Meidan discusses the concept of Ramadan and fasting especially with the lockdown. We talk about the relationship people have with these religious practices and ways these relationships can be interpreted. The conversation leans spiritual, but certainly has a lot of practical insights. Hope you enjoy!
