In the scheme of Comparative Religion studies, this interactive workshop will explore fasting in the context of holistic spiritual practices. The workshop will look at the purposes of fasting, which go beyond mere abstention from food, as well as some guiding principles for conducting a fast. Information shared will be taken from two main sources: Gandhi’s teachings of Nonviolence, rooted in the Yoga-Vedanta tradition, and Islamic teachings regarding Ramadan, the holy month of fasting.
