The Seven Valleys and the Arts of Transformation focuses on exploring Bahá’u’lláh’s The Seven Valleys through creative expression, both for those with background in the arts and for those with interest in but little or no experience in this approach.  Rather than through intellectual or academic discussion, each week the learner will be responsible for reading and then exploring materials related to elements and stages of spiritual development through the process of artistic expression, such as the creation of a poem, drawing, or music. 

At the end of the course the learners will be asked to present a compilation of art created in the course, or an artwork that summarizes what they have learned and how this experiential process has influenced their personal growth. 

Zoom salon: Learners are invited to participate in a weekly zoom art salon, where they will be encouraged to create a spontaneous art expression based on one or more quotes or concepts from the course, and to provide reflections on the artwork created.
