Consultation at National Convention

This short video, created by the Baha’is of the United States, explores what Baha’i consultation is. It discusses how consultation integrates listening, thinking, and speaking with others in a discipline of truth-seeking. Consultation is a prominent feature of National Convention, where Baha’is elect the National Spiritual Assembly, the nine member governing body who will govern the national affairs of a Baha’i community.
