BRINGING SCIENCE AND SPIRITUALITY TOGETHER
In an unprecedented step to mitigate Covid-19 fears and anxieties affecting people’s mental health, Ryad Khodabocus, Head of Community Relations & Development at Luton Council of Faiths (LCoF), and Jolel Miah, Founding Chair of Our Minds Matter have together produced Podcast on ‘Spirituality & Mental Health’ from different faiths perspectives, bringing science and spirituality together.
Digital audio files can be downloaded FREE from https://anchor.fm/ourmindsmatter to listen to guest speakers invited from different faiths, sharing how they apply spirituality to understand and manage mental health and overall well-being.
The 23rd Luton Annual Peace Walk coincided this year with the International Peace Day on 21st September 2019. Nearly 200 people from across different backgrounds joined in visiting St Luke’s Church, Hockwell Ring Mosque, High Street Methodist Church and Al-Hikmah Prayer Hall.
