Nasir Sobhani aka ‘The Streets Barber’, is a true Nomad, not just of the world, but also of the mind. Growing up in Japan, attending University in Canada, volunteering his time for Youth Work in the Vanuatu and then Australia to start up his own initiative helping the homeless, Nasir has certainly lived a fruitful life. It wasn’t all smooth sailing though, with a crippling drug addiction along the way, Nasir thanks his Baha'i faith and barbering for his new found sobriety. Working six days a week cutting hair, Nasir spends his one day off hitting the streets to give free haircuts to the homeless. He calls it, ‘Clean Cut Clean Start’.
Not only is this an awesome example of true humanity and an example of what is GOOD in the world, I was particularly touched by what Nasir begins speaking about at the 10:00 minute mark in the video, the Sunday Night Devotional that he participates in. I did something similar 20 years ago when I was in college and it was so good for the heart and soul to have positively uplifting conversations with a wide cross-section of people – fellowshipping and showing true respect for one another.
