STUDY CIRCLES - Inspiration from the Sacred Word
What are Bahá'í Study Circles?

The Bahá'í Community has adopted a systematic approach to studying the Bahá'í Writings to help educate community members in the fundamental principles of the Bahá'í Faith.

The purpose of this study is to gain a deeper understanding of the Word of God, to comprehend its meanings and to find ways to apply it to our daily lives. Bahá'í study circles provide participants with the knowledge, spiritual insights and skills that enable them to “walk a path of service” for humanity.


Study circles are a place to develop skills and abilities, learn how to teach and serve others. They are a place where we develop human resources, friendships, and a means to empower one another. It's a group of equals studying the word of God together. They serve as a means to help build better communities, and a better world.



How Do They Work?


All Study Circles have 3 components: Group Study, Socializing, and Community Service. A small number of participants (usually 6 to 12) come together and work with a facilitator using the materials developed as part of the curriculum. The role of the facilitator is not to impart knowledge. Rather, it is to facilitate discussion using cooperative and active participation methods. Individuals study various writings, engage in group discussion, and participate in a variety of practical exercises. The pace and frequency of the study sessions is determined by the participants.

 

Study Circle Themes Include:
 
The Life of Bahá'u'lláh
Understanding the Bahá'í Writings
Prayer and Meditation
Life and Death
The Joy of Teaching
Principles of Bahá'í Education
