DYS Workshop


Sadath Khan has pioneered the concept of ‘Discover Yourself’, a series of high-intensity workshops powered by the theme of self-introspection. These empowering workshops are not just informative, but are also transformative in nature, seeking to guide and shift the participants from self-created reality to the Ultimate Reality. They afford participants the ability to come out of the box and realize the Ultimate Reality, thus opening the doors to a new realm of consciousness, calm, peace and tranquility.

A typical ‘Discover Yourself’ workshop imparts inner peace to the participants. It frees, helps free them from anger, rancor, jealousy, frustration and depression, boosts their confidence, guides them towards a successful life, mends intra-family and inter-personal relationships, helps set participants’ lives on the axis of God consciousness, sharpens their understanding of the purpose of life, removes the psychological burdens of the past, builds contentment and helps in goal-setting and overcoming setbacks. It unleashes positive energy, heralds hope in lives emaciated with despondency, opens new vistas, and harnesses inner potential for constructive purposes. It builds bridges between people and the Creator.

Designed by Sadath Khan himself, the unique three-day educational workshop format is a journey to discover One’s True Self and one’s True purpose of life. It is a unique experiential, life changing and empowering workshop that seeks to transform participants into a good human beings. Today the entire education system and also the supposed religious education is connecting humanity to the two external faculties, the sense faculty and the logic and rational faculty. When people connect to only these two faculties they regress and exist as animals and beasts, independent of God, believing in the theory of ‘I, MYSELF’. These two faculties connects to the external world and whole purpose and desire of life is to survive and exist, to seek maximum pleasure, accumulate and amass external material wealth. Connecting to the external one creates a false self ‘ego’. God has sent His messengers and books to connect human beings to the inner self- ‘Qalb – The Heart’, the third faculty – the realization faculty, which is the seat of spirit of God, which is eternal, the ethical faculty. When we connect to the spirit we become the eternal, spiritual, unique, ethical human being, the True or the authentic Self. This faculty has the ability to distinguish between good and evil, truth and falsehood and beneficial and harmful. Connecting to the inner faculty and using the two external faculties to serve and benefit humanity fulfills the purpose of the Creator. Serving humanity is service to God then life becomes worship.

The intention of the workshop is to remind people that God created human beings and He appeals to all to live as human beings, enjoy the bounties and not resort to inhuman behavior. Participants connect and realize that the source of peace is God. This transports people to a state of peace and tranquility. One can feel free and light. The positivity that one is helped to develop helps participants’ families and others around them to transform, too. One is empowered to get rid of the baggage of the past and learn to be in the present, gaining inspiration to create a new future. Participants can develop the power, freedom and self-expression to take up any challenge that life throws at them. One can experience, love, joy, peace, happiness, contentment and bliss, gifts that God has given humankind to experience and share with others. The endeavor drives participants to rid the denial way and choose submission way of life and surrender to the will of God Almighty, the Ultimate Reality.

Sadath Khan has pioneered the concept of presenting the Truth with the help of tools based on modern management and psychology. His ‘Discover Yourself’ workshops are a fusion of modern management techniques and Islamic spiritual values and principles. One unique thing about them is their style of presentation. Instead of the traditional way of presenting the Truth, a modern approach is adopted, through which participants are made to distinguish their true self from falsehood, thereby helping to herald and joy and peace. The workshops are very interactive, and participants are encouraged to share their experiences and views. The emphasis is on the application, geared to enable participants to lead a responsible and fulfilling life. The entire focus of the workshop is on bringing in transformation from within, rather than imparting theoretical knowledge. Participants are helped to experience a paradigm shift through various exercises so that they get motivated to affect the required transformation in their life and so that their outlook on life is according to the Quranic world view.
