What Tavaana Students Have to Say

I am now familiar with concepts which I had only heard mentioned and which I used without understanding their meanings and connotations. For example, I now understand the difference between secularism and laïcité, or the difference between the separation of church and state and the separation of religion and politics, among other things. I will continue my studies of these topics and share them with others if I can.
