Consultation at National Convention

May 12, 2019, in Videos > Documentary, by

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. 

If you’d like to know more about the Baha’i consultation, you might find this talk helpful: Paul Lample on Consultation
