The third annual convening of the Black Muslim Psychology Conference (BMPC), organized by the Muslim Wellness Foundation, focused on the importance compassionate leadership, community well-being and healing justice.  With a new larger venue, the conference hosted double the attendees as last year.

BMPC2aWorkshops and panels centered on the BMPC theme Leading with Compassion: In Search of Healing Justice & Collective Well-Being. The conference is the vision of Kameelah Rashad, founder and president of the Muslim Wellness foundation. About Islam asked Rashad how it felt to see another successful year of the conference and hear so many praises about it.

 

“If this is what Allah intended that I do, I am so grateful that he gave me this mission because there is nothing like seeing your people happy. It is not the kind of happiness that is so optimistic that you are oblivious of challenges.  It’s a happiness of gratitude, fulfillment and peace. If I can provide a space and mechanism for people to find peace, even for two days, it is just tremendous.”
