Study circles bring groups of people together to deepen their understanding of the Bahá'í teachings through systematic study. This involves structured group discussion of passages from the Bahá'í writings that encourage reflection on one’s moral purpose and capacities for service.

Participants follow a sequence of courses that address various themes in the Bahá'í writings, such as prayer, the education of children, and the lives of central figures of the Bahá'í Faith.

Each course allows participants to develop new skills, such as organizing devotional gatherings or leading junior youth empowerment groups. As they strive to apply their new insights through a process of action, reflection and consultation, their capacity to offer service to their communities is raised to new levels.

Within a study circle everyone is encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning in an environment that is at once serious and uplifting. Study circles are facilitated by trained tutors, who have completed the sequence of courses and now accompany others through the same educational process.

Study circles are one of the core activities of Bahá'í community life, and they are designed to imbue participants with a feeling of personal responsibility for the advancement of their communities, nation and world. They happen in Bahá'í communities all around the country and anyone is welcome to join – regardless of religious or cultural background.
