World Peace: 6 Essential Shifts in Mindsets & Habits Needed

June 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT

In this webinar, Baha’i author, Sovaida Ma’ani Ewing will talk about the themes in her book, Alchemy of Peace, 6 Essential Shifts in Mindsets and Habits to Achieve World Peacewhich was released in January 2021.

Book Description: “Humanity stands at a critical crossroads. Social, political, religious, economic, and environmental systems are unraveling with bewildering rapidity all around us. In the face of such disintegration many of us feel helpless, despondent, angry, and anxious. Such feelings pose the greatest danger of all, as they lead to a loss of hope and a paralysis of will at a time in our collective evolution when inaction can be catastrophic.

The Alchemy of Peace offers the gift of hope and a viable path out of the current chaos. It identifies a set of dysfunctional habits borne of tired old perspectives, false assumptions, limiting beliefs, and interpretations on the basis of which we make choices about how to behave. It posits that replacing these mindsets and habits with more constructive and empowering ones will open our eyes to new opportunities growing out of the ferment of our troubled times.

A vision of the possibilities to create a better future will reinvigorate us with hope. Once we are equipped with this necessary energy, we will be able to harness the power of free choice to work tirelessly to achieve the world we want and deserve—a peaceful world in which we can focus on actualizing our individual and collective potential.”  (The book is available on Amazon in both digital and paperback formats.)

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.
