Blanche Grant, A Professional Story Teller; on Transforming Human Consciousness

by staff

Blanche has been a dear friend and collaborator. Our friendship grew deeper as we served together in to mentor, inspire, and empower the Baha’i Youth including my own two older children, who wished to serve with us in teaching youth classes in the Baha’i Winter and Summer Schools in Southern California. Knowing Blanche and serving with her has been an enriching gift in my life of service and a valuable learning experience for my children while serving their Bahai community. This interview was recorded in 1994. TRANSFORMIMG HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS purpose and goals statement Transforming Human Consciousness was an individual initiative by Keyvan Geula LMFT and sponsored by the Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Claremont. Each month two interviews of 30 minutes each were recorded at the Cable Station in Claremont CA 91711 (CPAT) and broadcasted to the local viewers. Community members served as camera people, helpers and supporters in the studio. The purpose of the shows was to educate the community at large about Basic Principles of the Baha’i Faith such as: The oneness of God The oneness of mankind. The oneness of religion. Independent investigation of truth. Equality of women and men. Religion as a source of unity. The evolutionary nature of religion. Education for all Spiritual solutions to the economic problems of the world Harmony between religion, science and reason. Loving consultation as a means for resolving differences. The guests were selected and invited by Keyvan Geula; the host; from amongst a distinguished list of distinguished friends, colleagues, educators, students and community activists with diversity of backgrounds, views and expertise. Transforming Human Consciousness was broadcasted for eight years and came to an end when CPAT no longer was serving the community. All the recordings were done in VHS. After the birth of the digital age, my friend Mel Jakobson converted the VHS files to digital making it possible for me to share these historic files on my Youtube Channel one by one. My hope is these timeless conversations, will continue to guide our path towards a more harmonious and inclusive global community.
