Avatar’s Abode 60th Anniversary 2018

Tuesday 5th June to Monday 11th June 2018

Our confirmed guests are Peter and Debbie Nordeen.

We will have more information on other guests and attendees at a later date.

Call for Expressions of Interest from
Overseas Visitors

On June 5 to 11 (Tuesday to Monday) of 2018 we will gather to celebrate and commemorate the sixtieth anniversary of the four day visit in 1958 of Beloved Avatar Meher Baba to the property which He named Avatar’s Abode.

For 2018 we have extended the usual 4 day celebration to 7 days.

To assist us with our early planning, the Anniversary Planning Committee is calling for expressions of interest from Baba Lovers around the world who may be wishing to attend.

Your possible interest in attending can be conveyed by clicking this link and answering some questions. This form also provides some additional information.

Your expression of interest will of course be in no way binding, but will help us to foresee the infrastructure requirements, as we anticipate significantly larger numbers from overseas. To those who respond we look forward to being in continuing closer contact.

Updates for the 2018 anniversary will appear here progressively.

Please share this with your local Baba Family.


Bernard Bruford and Denis Carmody.

60th Anniversary Planning Meetings

For this anniversary we will be holding some planning meetings during the day on weekends as well as some on weekday evenings. All meetings finish at the scheduled time. Minutes of meetings will be available on the desk in the Reception Centre.

All are very welcome to attend planning meetings and as always many workers are needed. A lot of the required planning work does not require attendance at meetings. New attendees are especially welcome, as this brings new ideas.

If you cannot attend our planning meetings, please advise if you would like to receive copies of minutes, or dates of future meetings. Also, please advise if you are willing to work behind the scenes.
