Next Meeting of the Minds:
Date: Saturday, March 30
Speaker: Dana Morand
Topic: "Community Building and the Spiritual Education of Children"
As always, dinner at 6:30 PM, presentation and discussion at 8:00, dessert and socializing afterwards.
Dana Morand will share her experience of raising small children with the concept of defining and developing virtues as tools for living. The focus of the talk will be understanding of the Baha'i perspective of spiritual education. The Baha'i Teachings express this idea outside of the area of religious dogmas, a truly universal approach.
Dana received a B.A. in early childhood education from Mount Holyoke College in 2007. She has been active in the Baha'i community, facilitating junior youth groups, virtues classes, devotional meetings, and children's and adult art classes. She has served as an elected member of two Baha'i Spiritual Assemblies.
Dana lives in Lawrenceville with her husband and two children, ages 5 and 3. She serves on the Parent Council at University League Nursery School.

The most recent Meeting of the Minds was held on February 2. Talibah Sun spoke on "The Pupil of the Eye: The Spiritual Destiny of People of African Descent"
The Meeting of the Minds, usually held once every month to two months on a Saturday evening, is a dinner and discussion organized by the local community of the Baha'i Faith. It is held at the home of Wendy and Grant Kvalheim, 4225 Province Line Road, Princeton NJ 08540. Below are directions to the Kvalheims'.
The format is: 6:30 dinner, 8:00 presentation and discussion; dessert and socializing afterwards. All are welcome, regardless of religious or non-religious belief.
Presentations are on subjects relating to both our personal lives and the larger society. Discussions are open for anyone to discuss his or her own views from any perspective. Our purpose is good fellowship, stimulating conversation, fruitful dialogue, and to learn from each other. Attendance averages around 25-30 people, includes both Baha'is and non-Baha'is, and there are usually first-time attenders.
There is no charge. You do not need to register beforehand. You do not need to bring a dinner dish. You are welcome to bring a dessert if you wish but this is not necessary.

From 95 at NY City:
Take NJ turnpike (#95) going south to New Brunswick exit #9. Pass though toll bearing to right onto Rt#18 North. (This is a short jog. At merge lane move quickly to the left as the road splits and you want to go around the curve) Take first exit which is less than ¼ mile on right to Rt #1 South.
Route 1 South
After exit 9 of the NJ Turnpike, travel about 25 minutes total on Rt #1 South.
You will pass Princeton Forrestal Village, pass Harrison Street, pass exits for Alexander Road. Two lights after Alexander Road, look for large green sign—Province Line Road. Take this exit. At first light after exit, turn left onto Province Line Road. You will tavel a few miles. Pass through two lights. After the second light, (you are still on Province Line Road) you will see Bristol Meyer Squibb on left, then Jasna Polana Golf Course on right, then a downhill zig zag in the road. After the zag, count three mailboxes on the right. We are the third mailbox. The number is 4225.
Take Route 95 going North from Philadelphia.
After Route 95 turns into Route 295 South, take exit to Route 206N toward Princeton. Travel a few miles, pass Carter Road. Turn left at next light .This is Province Line Road. (Next follow Directions* below).

A) At Elm Road, turn onto Rosedale going away from Princeton. Travel @ 3 miles. At the end of a long white horse fence, turn left onto Province Line Road. Travel ¼ mile until you see a “sharp curve in the road” sign. Directly across from it turn left into the driveway. The Mailbox and Post says 4225 Province Line.
B)Take 206 out of Princeton toward Lawrenceville. About 3 miles from town, turn right onto Province Line Road (just after Peterson’s Nursery on left). Travel 1.5 miles to our driveway but keep in mind the following:
(You are getting close. These points are important. If you pay attention, you will arrive quickly; if you do not, you will be lost a long time and you will not get a prize for being a good direction follower.)
• Pass these landmarks:
Bristol Meyers Squibb,
Jasna Polana Golf Course,
Small incline after “sharp curve in road” sign
• From the bottom of the incline, when the road is curving left, count three mailboxes on the right. Turn into the driveway at the third mailbox. There are two stone pillars, an open gate and a low belgian block wall and the lighted number 4225 on the left pillar. You cannot see the house from the road.
• Drive a long way down the driveway, past two big buildings, past the separate garage around the far side, and park in the circular area amid the trees or in the paved circle of the house. This is actually the front door. See you there! Come in without knocking.
Do not follow the mailbox numbers. They are not in order.
If you are using a GPS, the house location is close to 4595 Province Line Road.
