Nooshi Saberi, homilist –
Lynne Bonner, worship associate –
The Virtues Project is a global initiative, inspiring the practice of virtues in everyday life. Its foundation is research into the world’s great wisdom traditions. The Five Strategies of The Virtues Project are tools for personal growth and healing, and a path to deeper meaning, purpose and joy in our lives.
The Virtues Project began with an idea — that all children are born with the virtues in potential, and that when parents and educators awaken these gifts of character, we can change the world.
Nooshafarin Saberi (Nooshi) was born in Kuwait. She studied in England where she met her husband and they moved to Luxembourg where her children were born. Twenty years ago they came to Victoria. Nooshi has been teaching at the University of Victoria’s Continuing Studies Department for over 15 years.
