Virtual Event Virtual Event

DRBI is honored to have Dr. Saeid Mirafzali, M.D. MHSA return to discuss a healthy approach to the Baha’i Fast in this second session.

The presentation and following discussion is on the deep spiritual and physical aspects of the Fast and how to manage both, in order to better reap the benefits of this essential, obligatory practice and pillar of one’s spiritual life.

It is hoped all participants, including the presenter, will better appreciate the spiritual meaning and significance of the Bahai Fast.  We will discuss effective strategies to manage hunger and appetite so one can focus more on the spiritual side than being preoccupied with the physical.
