Adult Discussion Series


Four years ago, Mohammed Webb Foundation experimented with a “coffee hour” – a time where parents could gather and share experiences while their children attended Sunday School classes. In short order, the concept of Coffee Hour matured into a lecture and discussion series where the Mohammed Webb community could learn about and discuss all sorts of topics relevant to our experience as Muslims and Americans.

“Transformational Growth Model”
Led By Saym Basheer
Join us this Sunday for a discussion on the Transformational Growth Model. Transformative learning involves a process of transforming our established ways of viewing ourselves and others, with the intent of being able to self-reflect and observe the world more clearly. As a result, through the growth model, we are able to operate with a greater sense of purpose, personal efficacy, autonomy, and relatedness. The model provides invaluable guidance in evaluating personal development, setting goals, and being able to identify and analyze problems in our lives, in the same way that a map allows us to figure out where we are and where we want to go.
