Leysin Baha'i Winter School

On 26-32 December 2018, over 250 Baha'is and their friends gathered in the Alpine resort of Leysin, Switzerland for the annual Swiss Winter School. They were of all ages and came from all over Switzerland, France, other European countries, and as far away as USA and Australia. One even said that they learned about the school from my web site. It is wonderful to catch up with old friends and new. My daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren were also there. There were classes, artistic activities, sports and games, along with socializing over excellent food, but I had to spend the afternoons working on my parts of the book on global governance that I needed to finish by January.

Mrs Uransaikhun Granfar Bataar from Mongolia gave the main course on "Kindling the Fire of Love", followed by working groups in the different languages of the school. She was formerly a Counsellor at the International Teaching Centre, now settled in Geneva. Many groups also studied Ruhi books in German, French, English, and Persian.
