Islam is perhaps the most misunderstood or misinterpreted of all religions. In a time of heightened tension in many parts of the world, ignorance of religions is a source of discrimination, stereotyping, fear and hatred and this is more true about Muslims than any other group. Mr. Altaf Ali, exec. dir. of the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) will discuss traditions and practices of this Abrahamic religion in historical and contemporary contexts. Don’t miss this enlightening evening.

Los obstáculos de esta clínica presentan para el terapeuta un desafío y una responsabilidad frente al sufrimiento de un sujeto. La propuesta es situar las coordenadas de esta dificultad clínica así como propiciar, por la vía de la intervención psicoterapéutica, el pasaje de la urgencia a la emergencia subjetiva. (Este evento esta dirigido a Profesionales de Salud Mental y Estudiantes Avanzados. Registrarse previamente 305 300 6680 $25 – estudiantes – $10).

Hoy los individuos están perpetuamente en situación de peligro. En el contexto de una vida expuesta a la amenaza, impera una lógica de exclusión: nosotros o los otros. Cuáles son las consecuencias de interpretar como un peligro todo lo que proviene de lo diferente a si mismo? Por que el desconocimiento de lo ajeno y extraño conduce a un daño irreversible del hombre y la sociedad? Las ideas de algunos de los pensadores actuales, se articularán con el miedo, uno de los síntomas que más padece el hombre contemporáneo. Para la información adicional llame por favor 305.300.6680

Women have routinely been left out of sacred scriptures except when their lives intersect with those of men’s. When women do appear, it is, more often than not, with an emphasis that she is fundamentally impure, less than human, or unable to reach salvation on her own. In this lecture Prof. Rowan, FIU, will present an overview of the various ways many of the world’s religious traditions include or exclude women and provide an understanding of how that impacts women’s lives event today.
