Sault College Offers Ruhi Course

sault-college-ruhi-course

A community college in Ontario, Canada is offering the Ruhi course. Or at least the first book in the sequence:

In this course you will develop an understanding of the Baha’i writings through three guided segments of the text, Reflections on the Life of the Spirit. Through class discussion and self-reflective exercises you will explore the following areas: Understanding the Baha’i Writings, Prayer, and Life and Death. The workbook, Reflections on the Life of the Spirit, Ruhi Institute can be purchased from the Campus Shop.

Unless I’m mistaken, this is the first time a Ruhi course has been offered by a non-Baha’i educational institution.

EDIT: I’m told by Steve M in the comments below that this isn’t the first instance at all.

This is great news! Now perhaps we can have non-Baha’is take Ruhi while we get on with actually doing something, you know, useful.

What do you think?

    Thanks Steve, but technically Mongolia isn’t a country. It is just a vast yak herd that wanders the wilderness in search of pasture. Or so I’ve heard.

    It is not the college that is offering it, it is offered as a Continuing Education, like Belly Dancing, Yoga, Cooking, etc. It is an individual offering his/her skill–in this case Roya Mobharrabi for 29.95 (look on page 11). Anybody can offer a course as a CED. A course is “offered” by a “college” when it is approved by the Dean and academic board. Here is the list of courses offered by the college as CED:

    Someone is attempting to profit from teaching a course that was never meant to cost anyone anything beyond the cost of the book? Wonderful…

    I hope Roya is not Baha’i.

    Let’s not be too hasty to judge. It is entirely possible that she is donating all proceeds to the Faith, FUNDAEC, or other worthy causes.

    That could be true. But why charge for a course that could be used to spread the faith? More people would show up if it didn’t cost $30.
