      EVENT DETAILS
      Is Spiritual Growth a Human Right? (Free Event)

      We all have basic human, material needs such as food, shelter, and clothing. And many would add that we have basic emotional needs as well, such as love. But what about basic spiritual needs? Do our souls have needs? And if so, is having those needs met a spiritual right? Many believe we are all born with an innate desire to learn and to seek truth, to know ourselves and to grow and achieve our full potential. But are there unintentional ways, or even fully intentional ways, society may be preventing us from doing these? How do we create a world in which our needs (material and beyond) are recognized and protected, where everyone has equal opportunity to meet these needs – regardless of background or belief – and to contribute to the betterment of the world around them? Be part of a different kind of conversation – one that welcomes every perspective in a search for the deeper truths that unite us. Please join us for a lively discussion on the spiritual perspective offered by the Bahá'i Teachings on recognizing our innate gifts and needs as individuals and how our development as spiritual beings shapes our own growth and that of our communities. “The pathway of life is the road which leads to divine knowledge and attainment.” – Bahá’i Teachings *** This event is free and open to all regardless of background or belief. Donations will not be accepted.
