This course will help us to build our resilience to the everyday challenges of life, the tasks that appear to be monumental, the situations that really try our patience, the problems and difficulties that arise for many people. We will look at meeting such tests in light of the Bahá'í teachings, exploring the Bahá'í perspective on the nature and purpose of tests, the sources of tests, how to become resilient through preparing ourselves for difficulties, the spiritual qualities we develop through tests and how we can use them to meet the next challenges in our life, some of the specific challenges that arise at different stages of life, and how the lessons we are learning through the training institute process not only assist us to become resilient but also enable us to contribute to the society-building efforts of our localities.


Please note: The course does not provide therapy for those who may need professional assistance.
