Study Circles

“Regard man as a mine rich in gems of inestimable value. Education can, alone, cause it to reveal its treasures, and enable mankind to benefit therefrom.”

Study circles are classes where people come together to learn more about their spiritual nature and learn ways to apply that knowledge in service to their communities.  A distinguishing feature of study circles is that in many countries, and across diverse cultures, they have created a new dynamic within the community and have become nuclei of community life and catalysts for teaching, service, and community development. In addition to study of the institute courses, the members of the study circle, both Bahá’ís and non-Bahá’ís, often participate in service and extracurricular activities that bind the group together in fellowship and attract others to this mode of learning.
