Finding Meaning and Opportunity in Our Global Suffering

A global pandemic. Economic instability. Social upheaval. It’s  easy to despair at the state of the world. But what if this time is a  blessing in disguise? Join the Austin Baha’i Community and  renowned speaker Sovaida Ma’ani Ewing as we explore a  radically new perspective on the tribulations of our time. 

Sovaida Ma’ani Ewing is a prolific author, speaker, international lawyer, life mastery coach, and founding director of the Center for Peace

About the Bahá’í Calendar and Holy Days

The Baha’i Faith has its own calendar, called the Badí’ Calendar. It is a solar calendar consisting of 19 months of 19 days each (361 days), plus “Intercalary Days” (four in ordinary years and five in leap years) to adjust the calendar to the solar year. The days and months are named after the attributes of God. The Nineteen Day Feast, the primary community gathering for Baha’is in each town and city, is held on the first day of each Baha’i month. Eleven Holy Days mark significant events in Baha’i history.

We would love to hear from you
