In 'The Journey,' Nahid V. Meshgin shares her uniquely inspiring personal and spiritual journey. Set across four continents - Asia, North America, Europe and Australia- her story is marked by stark contrasts, exciting opportunities and unexpected challenges as Nahid experiences both privilege and loss, religious persecution, exile from the land of her birth, major life milestones far from her family, the struggle to build a new life in distant lands and the desire to create a sense of community and belonging in her new home country.

Interwoven throughout Nahid's remarkable journey, she shares a number of the key spiritual principles and timeless virtues which have assisted her to tread a path of love, faith and service. These include, courage, trust, hope, honesty, justice, faithfulness, excellence, reverence, generosity, humility, orderliness, loyalty, respect, courtesy, detachment and love. Ever guided by the teachings of the Bahá'í Faith, Nahid weaves her experiences and insights, into a rich tapestry of family, faith and fellowship.

Ultimately, Nahid's story is a reflection of her heartfelt belief in the possibility of a future global community characterised by love, peace, compassion, diversity and justice. Importantly, her book invites us all to see beyond our differences to the oneness of humanity; to appreciate we are more similar than different, more connected than separate and each share an underlying desire to live in peace.

Nahid Vahdat Meshgin is a fifth-generation member of the Bahá'í Faith who has strived to serve Bahá'í communities and institutions around the world for over 50 years. Originally born in Persia, (modern day Iran) Nahid and her young family were forced to flee their homeland after the Iranian Revolution of 1979, due to religious persecution which saw Bahá'ís imprisoned, tortured and executed for their beliefs. Travelling widely since this time, Nahid aspires towards the ideal of global citizenship as well as the possibility of contributing to the international Bahá'í community and the people in the countries in which she has lived, travelled or visited. Nahid's cherished community service activities include: supporting regular devotional gatherings in her home for over 20 years, contributing pro bono time to initiatives to foster and expand unity between peoples from different faiths and cultures through the City of Melville (Perth, Western Australia) Multi-Cultural Advisory Committee for 15 years, volunteer teaching trips abroad to support remote Bahá'í communities in Fiji, Albania, Greenland, Uzbekistan, Myanmar and Mongolia and countless other unity building initiatives. Amongst her friends, family and peers, Nahid is recognised for her natural ability to see the beauty and similarities between all individuals, regardless of their age, ethnicity, class, creed or religion. She aims to promote greater love, compassion and understanding between people around the globe, with a hope that this sentiment, if upheld by a large enough number of people, will ultimately lead to world peace. Nahid lives in Perth with her husband, Mehrdad, and in close proximity to her extended family.
