The Fast

  • Baha’is abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset for 19 days. While this abstention from food and drink is a test of one’s will and discipline, the Fast is not just about abstaining from food. The Fast is, primarily, a spiritual practice.

EBBF Podcast Episode 13: Rethinking Education

August 23, 2020, in Audio > Podcasts, by

The Ethical Business Building the Future organization, otherwise known as EBBF, is a not-for-profit that aims to promote moral and spiritual wisdom and principles found in the teachings of the Baha’i Faith and the great religious traditions of the world, such as the principles of justice, respect, trustworthiness, integrity and unity.

#discoveringhow is EBBF’s podcast series where you can hear personal experiences and insights from EBBF members — each episode offers you stepping stones, fresh ideas, and the personal learnings of people who believe that ethical business can and should build the future.

Many aspects of who we are and how we live our lives are determined by our experiences in the formative years. In this episode we explore how to introduce new forms of education that will create leaders able to shape a better future.

Later in the program we hear the first-hand experience of Badi Shams who founded a school in India based on high ethical principles and we learn what establishing a school taught him about learning.

Gordon Naylor, the director of the Nancy Campbell Academy in Canada, thinks deeply about what kind of education is needed to nurture tomorrow’s change agents and transformational leaders.
