Explore the The Seven Valleys - or seven stages of spiritual growth - described in the mystical Baha’i writings. Using a series of artworks Jacqueline Claire introduces the profound concepts of The Seven Valleys in a lively, interactive and down to earth approach. Participants are encouraged to correlate text with artwork, creating an opportunity for imaginative thought, conversation and new insights. See your life path in a new way. Individual and group learning is facilitated through sharing, imaginative analysis of the artwork and discussion of practical applications of the mystical to everyday life.
Jacqueline Claire is a storyteller, fine artist and illustrator with a background in film and television. She grew up in San Antonio and is a member of the Baha'i Faith, a religion founded on the principles of love, unity and the oneness of humankind. She is third generation American Baha'i - her grandmother discovered the Faith in San Antonio in 1964. As a teenager she completed a formative Baha'i-inspired academic curriculum The World Peace Programme, at an international school in the Czech Republic. The Programme gave her a foundation in the Spiritual Heritage of the Human Race, grounded in the current state of the world and with training in tools for compassionate consultation. Her passion is blending spirituality and art into uplifting opportunities for community engagement and meaningful conversation. She recently returned from a multi-state tour of her show, Awaken to Your Life as a Spiritual Journey and lives and creates in New Braunfels, Texas.
