June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
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.
Naysan is passionate about using the arts and media to explore the teachings of the Baha’i Faith. Back in 2011, Naysan started up the Baha’i Blog project, channeling his experiences in both media and technology companies to help create a hub for Baha’i-inspired content online.
Thanks, Naysan, for posting this nicely done brief intro to the tool of Bahá’í consultation and also for the link to Paul Lample’s excellent, mind-opening talk: a good one to watch again!
