The Mindful Muslim is an Inspirited Minds podcast that hosts raw, open, and honest conversations on various topics within the sphere of mental health, psychology, Islam and spirituality.

This month, we spoke to Dr. Omar Reda, who is a board-certified psychiatrist, Harvard-trained trauma expert, the founder of Healing Trauma Institute, and the author of many books including Untangled and The Wounded Healer. Dr. Reda lives with his wife and 3 daughters in Colorado, USA.

Our conversation explored:

  • The definition and impact of trauma
  • Breaking generational trauma cycles
  • Nurturing environments for families and communities to heal from collective traumas
  • Carers and the impact of care-giving on mental, physical and spiritual health
  • Using Islam as a toolkit for healing
  • Self-care of the Prophet
  • & so much more!
