A Special Visit

I recently returned from a rejuvenating, spiritual, joyous and meditative journey at the Baha’i World Centre in Israel. The renovation of the dome of the Shrine of the Bab was recently completed and was a beautiful sight to see. I took a few photos of my time there and wanted to share them here.  I also spent some time visiting with my sister who works there and my parents were able to join us from Kenya also!
One of my highlights of the trip was a musical evening at my sister’s home.  We shared some prayers and sang together on the guitar.  The music added so much spirit to the evening.  Another highlight was meeting talented musician, Ali Youssefi, who also sang some of his compositions that evening on the guitar.  We will be collaborating on some new music together soon.
I feel so privileged to have been able to enjoy the beauty of the Shrines and gardens and the serene atmosphere of one of my favorite places anywhere.
