- Baha’is believe in the power of prayer and you’ll find Baha’is and their friends, throughout the world, getting together to pray. This is often referred to as a ‘devotional gathering’ or ‘devotional meeting’, and they happen in diverse settings, whether in cities or villages.
In this talk produced by Bahaiteachings.org, actress and activist Emily Baldoni speaks about the 35-hour drug-free home birth of her daughter and what it taught her about the strength of her own femininity. In that gruelling process, she realized the power of her qualities of love, peace and compassion. Using the Writings of the Baha’i Faith, Emily proposes ways those crucial feminine traits, so very often belittled and devalued, can help us all—men and women—seriously question and redefine the way we relate to power and advance civilization.
