Baha’i Blogcast with Rainn Wilson – Episode 70: Sovaida Ma’ani Ewing

September 28, 2021, in Audio > Podcasts, by

Hello and welcome to the Baha’i Blogcast with me your host, Rainn Wilson.

In this series of podcasts I interview members of the Baha’i Faith and friends from all over the world about their hearts, and minds, and souls, their spiritual journeys, what they’re interested in, and what makes them tick.

In this episode I’m joined by Sovaida Ma’ani Ewing, the founder of ‘The Center for Peace and Global Governance’ and a person of many talents. She’s the author of a number of books, has worked as a lawyer for 20 years, is a 7th generation Baha’i, and she’s passionate about the role of women in society, issues around global governance, the environment, peace-building, and leadership. We discuss all of these topics and also look at ideas around Collective Security, the meaning of power, and she even shares some personal stories of her time growing up in the Holy Land. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this conversation as much as I did!
