Spiritual Study Classes

Study classes are a means of exploring spiritual questions and learning how to put spiritual values into daily practice and service. Study classes include learning about the purpose of life, importance of daily prayer, life after death, raising spiritual children and sharing what we learn with our family and friends.

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 Bahá’ís; anyone may attend.
