Saturday, 28th March 2015

Dear friends - our very learned Matt Ives, from his ivory tower in Oxford, UK has been doing excellent research into the advents of the Avatar. Matt's sister Jane has been presenting the results of Matt's research at our monthly Meher House meeting over the past year.

This month Kevin Mossberger will be presenting Matt's research into the life of Avatar Mohammed. It promises to be a very interesting evening.
The meeting, at Meher House, 12 Kalianna Crescent, Beacon Hill, starts at 7:30 PM on Saturday March 28. You are welcome to come to Meher House from 7 PM on.

I will take this opportunity to tell you about the excellent work that husband-and-wife team Danny Baxter and Katie Pye have doing to clean up the tremendous amount of overgrowth at Meher House on the south, backyard side. It has been a Herculean task to cut, drag up, and remove vast amounts of privets, camphor laurels and other non-native, invasive plants. At last count, at least 8 ute loads of tightly packed vegetation have been taken to the recycling centre.
While Danny and Katie have been labouring in the backyard, I have been focussing on rehabbing Francis's Cabin. This where Francis lived when he was building Meher House, and it is where he gratefully undertook a 28 fast which Baba gave him as a "reward" for the performance of his play The Quest at Meher House during Baba's visit in 1956. I am reattaching the doorframe in its original position. I have removed about 20 cm of debris and building rubble to discover the original concrete slab floor is in good condition.

Staying True to Yourself: Drugs, Intoxication and Spiritual Implications



You are invited to join in a lively discussion with Dr. Allan Cohen and Sydney journalist, Emily Chantiri.


The event will be introduced by award winning producer, Kris Wyld, of East-West 101.


Renowned author and drug prevention campaigner, Dr. Allan Cohen will bring a generation of knowledge and discuss the impact of drugs and their spiritual implications.


The discussion will focus on how we can remain true to ourselves. The search for truth and meaning in life is a question we all ask; whilst some seek answers in drugs, others seek answers in spirituality.


Dr. Cohen’s life work began in the early sixties, at the height of drugs, sex and rock and roll era. Initially, he worked with the drug explorers, Timothy Leary and Ram Dass. During this period, Dr. Cohen’s life experienced a radical shift after he received a message from the spiritual master, Meher Baba. This would set him on a career path concentrating on the prevention and intervention of drug abuse as well as focusing on the spiritual path.


“In the sixties I was a graduate student at Harvard, my extracurricular activities included 3 years of experimentation with mind-altering drugs. These were the early days of the psychedelic movement, when adventurers of inner space were trying to explore the chemical frontiers of consciousness. In August 1964, I became interested in Meher Baba. I was especially impressed by the exquisite profundity of his writings on the nature of consciousness.”


Dr. Cohen will be interviewed by Sydney journalist, Emily Chantiri, contributor to Sydney Morning Herald, and the best-selling author of The Money Club, Savvy Girl’s Guide to Money and The Voice of Intuition.
