Regular Activities

Places in Edinburgh where you can experience the beauty and peace of trees, streams and nature


The following are a list of regular events, on top of which there are many spontaneous activities occurring every few days.


Education
Study Circles   Study Circles
Study Circles are a systematic way of learning about Spirituality and the Baha'i Faith, with special emphasis being placed on putting spirituality into practice. The popular Ruhi Books follow themes such as the Life of the Spirit, Arising to Serve, Children's Classes, Baha'i History, and Walking Together. In these Study Circles there is no leader directing the 'right' answers: the Study Circle has a facilitator encouraging everybody's heart-felt input as a valuable contribution, through the exploration of different questions, quotations and themes. If you are interested in taking part in a Study Circle, please contact us or read more info.
