Tadia co-produced and performed the musical drama A WOMAN AND HER WORDS, a theater production based on the true story of href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T%C3%A1hirih" target="_blank"Tahirih, a woman whose compelling but obscure life has been hidden from the western world until now, who was a 19th century notable Persian poetess and Eastern woman writer. Tahirih was one of the first 18 disciples of the href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B%C3%A1b" target="_blank"Bab, the forerunner to href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bah%C3%A1%CA%BCu%27ll%C3%A1h" target="_blank"Baha'u'llah, the prophet founder of the Baha'i Faith.

A Bahá'í Perspective: Eric Harper
When Eric was 7 years old he was in the kitchen doing the dishes when a song came on the radio. He doesn't remember which song it was, but he does remember the feeling that song gave him. He immediately stopped doing the dishes, quickly ran into the living room and stared at the stereo system. His sister called him back to finish the dishes, but he couldn#39;t move. He was transfixed, mesmerized. He literally couldn#39;t take his eyes off the stereo. He was so moved by emotion that all he remembered thinking was ldquo;I want to make people feel like that!rdquo; Since then Eric has studied classical guitar in Portugal, was in a band in LA with his brother playing fusion of rock with flamenco, and scored the music for the movie Waiting Alone. He has produced four solo albums and a number of current released singles. We feature his music in the interview You can find his href="https://ericharpermusic.com/" target="_blank"music here.
A Bahá'í Perspective: Elaheh Bos
Elaheh noticed a sense of anxiety in her young daughter and decided to create a children's book to help her daughter. That one children's illustrated book grew to a website called href="https://www.plantlovegrow.com/" target="_blank"plant-love-grow and she has been writing, illustrating, and publishing children#39;s books for the last 15 years. Her stories focus on inner growth through practical and sustainable methods and tools. With a background in Applied Human Sciences and Human Relations, and now as a Child Behavior Consultant, she brings creativity, passion, understanding, and a practical perspective as she helps families learn and grow. We talk about her work in the interview.
A Bahá'í Perspective: Alhan Irwin
I recorded an interview with Alhan Irwin, her brother Abir Majid, and her sister Ruwa Pokorny. Their mother, Anisa Abdul-Razzaq Abbas, wrote a memoir entitled href="https://www.bahaibookstore.com/Without-Hesitation-P10100.aspx" target="_blank"Without Hesitation, about her imprisonment for being a Baha'i in Iraq. Alhan translated the book into English, and we discuss not only her mother's imprisonment but her father's and Abir's experience in prison; all for the same reason.

A Bahá'í Perspective: Eduardo Rioseco
Born in the light of the inauguration of the href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santiago_Bah%C3%A1%27%C3%AD_Temple" target="_blank"Baha#39;i House of Worship in Chile, a wonderful new musical initiative was created by a group of three Baha#39;is in Santiago, Chile who call themselves ldquo; href="https://bahaimusicstore.com/arrayanes?zenid=rln2eub2s60a08juhvsce70n81" target="_blank"Arrayanesrdquo;. Arrayanes is a trio of close three friends ndash; Carlos Medina, Felipe Duhart and Eduardo Rioseco ndash; bound together by friendship, laughter, and love of God. The result is the creation of an album full of uplifting Latin American melodies and rhythms in pop-folk style. We feature a number of songs from the album in the interview. In this interview, I'm speaking with Eduardo Rioseco, one of the members of Arrayanes.
