Our Study Circles
Definition of study circles: As used by Bahá’ís, the term refers to small groups of people who meet with a trained tutor or facilitator in a given locality to study materials developed by the Ruhi Institute and participate in a learning process that usually involves reading, activities related to the arts, service projects, and sometimes social functions.
Here is a good link to the educative programs and materials used by the Baha'i community world-wide, whether for junior youth, children, youth, or adults: http://www.ruhi.org/materials/list.php#

Study circles are regular gatherings of people interested in learning more about spirituality, life, God, and have an interest in improving their spiritual life and the world around them. The purpose of this study is to gain a deeper understanding of the Holy Word, to comprehend its meanings and to find ways to apply the Word to our lives through spiritual transformation and service to humanity. Book 1 studies Writings about prayer, spiritual qualities, and life after death.
The frequency and duration of each study circle are set by the group, and a facilitator serves to maintain the focus and pace. Every participant in the group also makes a commitment to action or service.
Study circles are not restricted to Baha'is; anyone may and is welcome to attend. To join a study circle or learn more about it please email us: email@example.com and one of our Baha'i community members will help you.
