There is a desire, it could be said it is in our DNA to create, to make something better. The Bahá'i Founders strove to help us find new ways to advance our creative potentials. It is meaningful to think of this happening on three different levels of TRANSFORMATION:
All positive development must begin inwardly from strong, just, loving and caring individuals. Thus, Bahá'u'lláh writes: "My first counsel unto thee is this, possess a pure, kindly and radiant heart..." Community and Institutional Transformation must build from transformed individuals. which flows from an individual's daily prayer, meditation and personal study -- a process of continual lifelong learning. How can we help you advance your learning objectives?
Community transformation creates a collective learning, educational and encouragement process. The Worldwide Bahá'i Community has embarked on an expanding educational program for children, junior youth and adults. Please contact us about how you can connect with and support our efforts here in Bloomington.
As important as high-quality individuals are to creating good governing, judicial and educational institutions, how such good people are selected is vital. Also critical is how individuals learn to find better insights, understandings and truths together. We call this "Consultation" which is at the heart of all Bahá'i processes. There is very wise guidance as to how we best develop our consultative skills, as well as unique new organizational designs to pick the best people possible. Please contact us to further discuss these new institutional approaches.
Individual, Community and Institutional development are in constant interaction, growth and development. Knowledge, understanding and ever improving lines of action are continually expanding.
