- Baha’is believe in the power of prayer and you’ll find Baha’is and their friends, throughout the world, getting together to pray. This is often referred to as a ‘devotional gathering’ or ‘devotional meeting’, and they happen in diverse settings, whether in cities or villages.
Cloud9 is a podcast produced by Baha’i Teachings. Its aim is to feature interviews with artists and discuss what inspires them to make a positive contribution to the world. In this episode, Baha’i Teachings’ arts editor Shadi Toloui-Wallace speaks with internationally-acclaimed traditional storyteller, poet and multidisciplinary artist Louise Profeit-LaBlanc. Louise is a Nacho N’yak Dun First Nation Baha’i from northern Yukon Territory, Canada. In her interview with Cloud9, Louise opens up about her childhood in Canada’s north, and her early memories of attending residential school. She reflects on the strength and power of her grandmother who cared for her throughout her life, and passed on the traditions and stories of her ancestors. We also learn about how Louise was introduced to the power of prayer, which led her to discover the Baha’i Faith.
