Fresh New Stuff!
Last year we had a wonderful adventure with a series of in-depth Dawn-Breakers study retreats. And, by popular demand, we’re going to do it all over again. And we’re also adding a few new programs to the mix.
Reading the entire book together in a single sweep is a profound spiritual experience.
Nabíl’s narrative is not merely a narrative; it is a book of meditation. It does not only teach. It actually inspires and incites to action.... It quickens and stimulates our dormant energies and makes us soar on a higher plane.
We’ve lined up a fantastic array of speakers for weekend study programs - each of whom demonstrates God's brilliant gift of genius in their particular areas of exptertise.
Steve Sarowitz, Todd Lawson, Shahrokh Monjazeb, Joshua Hall, Nabil and Azadeh Fares, Franklin Lewis, Sima Quddusi, Michael (Sours) Rouhani, Habib Riazati, Jack McLean, Nader Saiedi, Susan Maneck, Steven Kolins, David and Teresa Langness and Robert Stockman.
Lots of freshly-narrated and word-aligned books
We’ve been busy all winter fixing mis-reads, adding new books, narrating and aligning audio. No one will ever believe how difficult it is to audio-align a book. Nearly every single word must be manually checked and adjusted. ;) Some of the books with completed narration now include:
- Christian/Judaic: The King James Bible (all books)
- Islam: Pickthall's Qur'an, Confessions of Ghazzali
- The Tao Te Ching
- Buddhism: The Dhammapada, The Diamond Sutra, The Gateless Gate, The Heart Sutra
- The Confucian Analects
- Hinduism: The Bhagavad-Gita, Songs of Kabir
Our Bahá’í Collection now includes the following narrated books:
- The Dawn-Breakers
- God Passes By
- A Traveler’s Narrative
- Days of Remembrance
- Compilation on Deepening
- Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh
- Memorials of the Faithful
- Paris Talks
- Prayers and Meditations
- Selections from the Writings of the Báb
- Some Answered Questions
- The Advent of Divine Justice
- The Secret of Divine Civilization
- Will and Testament of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
It’s been a busy winter. We’ve been preparing a really fun experimental Intensive Arabic retreat. The aim is to get students from nearly zero to daily reading of real Arabic literature - in just 6 days. This program will be appropriate for beginner and intermediate students - as the core daily work will be self-paced.
If you are up for a serious immersion challenge, come and join us this summer!
