Study Circles

Spiritual insight and service


Study circles are regular gatherings of Bahá’ís, their friends, family members, neighbors and co-workers, all of whom are seeking spiritual development and empowerment. Using quotes from the Bahá’í Writings, the members of the group study and reflect on the meaning, implications and personal applications of universal themes such as:

  • the origin and nature of the soul

  • the purpose and meaning of human existence

  • the station and power of the soul after death

  • the nature and effects of prayer and meditation

  • the benefits and safeguards of education

  • the independent investigation of reality 

  • truthfulness and trustworthiness

  • love, kindness, and peace-making

  • refraining from backbiting and faultfinding

  • the Oneness of God 

  • the unity of the world religions

In this process of study, reflection, and action the participants “come to see themselves as active agents of their own learning, as protagonists of a constant effort to apply knowledge to effect individual and collective transformation” through service to humanity. 

Truthfulness is the foundation of all human virtues.

~ Bahá'í Writings
