CONFERENCE OF NUR
May, 25, 26, 27, 2001

Elizabethtown College, Elizabethtown, PA sponsored by LSA of Harrisburg, Pa.

Theme: "Consecration, the Love of God, and Teaching"

A very interactive seminar to set us ablaze with the love of Baha'u'llah. Six sessions in workshop format, each building on the one before it, coordinated by Mr. Mehrdad Fazli, with themes approved by individual members of the Universal House of Justice and the International Teaching Committee.

This seminar has already been conducted in English as well as in Persian and Spanish in 130 cities in 10 different countries of the world. Many participants have written testimonials praising this uniquely refreshing teaching seminar which has profound and exhilarating effect on participants by strongly uplifting them and intensifying the fire of love of Baha'u'llahin their hearts. This seminar delves into Sacred Writings dealing with the love of God, studies the lives of lovers of Baha'u'llah, and points participants toward understanding how to feed the flame of love of Baha'u'llah within themselves, and how this is tremendously relevant to become successful in teaching His Cause. The coordinator will also host an optional additional session in Farsi for Persian believers. Everyone attending is asked to participate in all six sessions (commuters are requested to attend both Saturday and Sunday).

Saturday evening theatrical presentation: An Artistic Feast for the Soul, an Original Stage Production of "The Seven Valleys". The Quinn Family will present their theatrical adaptation of the 19th century mystical book, "The Seven Valleys". Described as 'spiritual chocolate cake' with awesome music, drumming and dance, and experienced like a meditation, The Seven Valleys is an exquisite and compelling theatrical production. The 75 minute performance features unusually beautiful hand-painted silk costumes and sets, and expert Persian calligraphy.

"Our goal is to bring this sacred book to life on the stage" say the Quinns. "We are told by many who attend that we are attaining our goal and that they are captivated by the text and performance". [Anyone who cannot attend the Conference sessions is invited to the Saturday evening presentation. Bring family, friends and seekers.]
