A Healing From the Heart Out | Sr. Rooya Ayubi
December 2 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
Do you ever feel like you just don’t matter or that people don’t see you for who you truly are?
Do you ever feel discouraged even when good things happen to you?
This sense of unworthiness often leads to self-suffering, which, in turn, can cause us to project suffering onto others, contributing to the pain and destruction in the world. Success and self-worth are closely intertwined. We are more likely to strive for success if we perceive ourselves worthy of that success.
Join Sr. Rooya Ayubi to gain insights on how to strengthen our connection with Allah(swt) and use that to overcome our feelings of unworthiness and fear of success to find ultimate success in this life and the hereafter.
As Muslims, we view our connection to Allah (swt) as the ultimate success. However, how do we attempt to find it when we can’t see ourselves worthy of any success? This, in turn, leads to avoidance of that connection due to our unworthiness dilemma. Consequently, many Muslims may either not practice their faith or, if they do, still grapple with a deep sense of disconnection, ultimately preventing them from fulfilling what Allah (swt) truly created us to do, to gain God-consciousness.
The workshop will use interactive storytelling, contemplative breathing meditation, and Zhikr, which focuses on the heart to bring real change, internal and external inshaAllah.
Rooya Ayubi is a storyteller, life coach, wife, and mother. An immigrant woman who walked across the desert from Afghanistan to Pakistan when she was only 6 years old, Rooya is a survivor of trauma. Because of this, Rooya grew up with a deep sense of unworthiness, which led to a decade of depression.
After embarking on a major self-healing journey, she emerged strong and healthy. Her dream and mission now is to guide women who have felt beaten down by the challenges in their lives to reawaken hope, reclaim their power, and begin to live a life of honor. Her work combines a vast array of diverse skills such as Powerful Non-Defensive Communication™, Storytelling, Way of Joy Qigong™, contemplative breathing methods, and Zhikr (remembrance) that focuses on the heart in order to help her clients make the shift necessary to embrace a life worth living.
She is also an admin for the East Bay Muslim Homeschooling group for almost 9 years and frequently hosts workshops titled “Chasing The Dunya Effect” and other workshops on self-worth.
