- Ayyam-i-Ha is a Baha’i festival that is joyously celebrated in countries and territories all over the world. It is a time of hospitality, generosity, and caring for the needy. This year Ayyam-i-Ha runs from February 26-29.
In this Baha’i Blog interview, Sonjel Vreeland speaks with Dr. Toya Mary Okonkwo, Lorraine Sheldon and Ivan Mihoci, three of the creators behind The Journey West.
The Journey West is a website and podcast series created to celebrate the centenary of Abdu’l-Baha’s travels to Egypt, Europe and North America. As 2021 commemorates the centenary of His Passing, we thought it might be helpful to shine a spotlight on this incredible resource.
On The Journey West you’ll find find 27 podcast episodes in which stories and historical accounts are dramatized and Abdu’l-Baha’s talks are beautifully read. Each podcast episode concludes with a discussion of the talk that was featured. On the website, you’ll also find articles about Abdu’l-Baha, the historical context surrounding His travels, and tributes to early believers.
