- 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.
In this talk, shared by the Baha’is of Santa Monica (California, US), Judge Dorothy Nelson speaks about her experiences using consultation and mediation in the American justice system.
