Study Circles

Study circles are a sequence of courses aimed towards training youth and adults (everyone 15 years old and above) to have a positive impact on society. These books are work books that are meant to be studied  and discussed with a group. Each book brings with it a required practical element.

Although the books themselves are based on the Bahá'í writings, they are open to people of all religions, and different religious belief systems may be discussed in relation to the topics in hand.

Study circles are currently available in just about every community across the country.
