The first set of workshops for the NLP course run by Dr. Mohamed Abdulrazak began this week: Mondays for women only and Fridays for everyone. The trainees interacted well as they listened attentively and asked relevant questions. This was an introduction into NLP and a great exemplar for the Quranic verse {As also in your own selves: Will ye not then see?} (51:21). Next week is the last chance to join the course.
