Cultivating a Relationship with Joy | Tatiana Zamir

In this talk, produced by Bahaiteachings.org, choreographer, performance artist and holistic healer Tatiana Zamir explains why more than 300 million people suffer from depression around the world — and why she does, too. With alcoholic and drug-addicted parents, and her father incarcerated for most of her life, Tatiana felt her sense of self being crushed at an early age, and grew up “a really sad child.” In adulthood, though, she learned that joy is a virtue — a spiritual quality that allows us to tap into our higher self — and discovered a spiritual path to happiness, intentionality and self-fulfillment.  Continue reading

Materialism: A Book by Dr Abdu’l-Missagh Ghadirian

Abdu’l-Missagh Ghadirian’s book, Materialism: Moral and Spiritual Consequences, is now in its second edition! Examining psychological, sociological and spiritual perspectives and substantiated by extensive scientific research, this book focuses on the moral and social consequences of materialistic mindsets. It advocates for a sensible balance between the spiritual and material aspects of life as two pillars of an equitable civilization.

The book is thorough and beautifully marries empirical scientific and economic concepts with spiritual principles and ideas. It is both an ethical guidebook and a thoughtful analysis. The first edition of this book received the Distinguished Scholarship award of the Association for Baha’i Studies in 2011 and I’m really thrilled that it is now in its second edition.

Dr Ghadirian kindly agreed to share a little about his book. I hope you enjoy our conversation:  Continue reading
