25th Annual Rocky Mountain Sahavas for Beloved Avatar Meher Baba

November 2 - 4 | 2018

This year’s Sahavas theme: Living the New Life with Meher Baba: A Blueprint for the New Humanity

Special Guests:
Naosherwan Anzar and Adrienne Shamzad

Naosherwan Anzar is known and beloved to the entire Meher Baba world as the editor and publisher of Glow International, launched under Meher Baba’s direction in 1966. Naosherwan is strongly committed to preserving, documenting and sharing the story of Meher Baba’s life. He grew up in a family of Baba Lovers in Dehra Dun, India, and had several meetings with Meher Baba.

Naosherwan’s father, Keki, and his mother, Freiny, were an integral part of Meher Baba’s New Life. Their home, 36 Lytton Road in Dehra Dun, was the headquarters of the New Life. Naosherwan will share in detail elements of the New Life, often termed as the blueprint for the New Humanity, with rare family New Life photographs and never-before-published material, with a special focus on lessons learned from the New Life phase.

A longtime resident of Princeton, New Jersey, he established Beloved Archives in 2011. See www.belovedarchives.org for more information about Glow and Naosherwan’s archival work.

Adrienne Shamszad is a singer-songwriter known for her special blend of folk, soul, blues and Eastern-influenced improvisational vocals. Her lyrics are poetic, intimate, genuine and inspired by the mystic Poets of Iran as much as the folk poet-songwriters of the ‘60s and ‘70s. Her strong and soulful voice, skillful and complex guitar work and bold performance style have made her a popular California performer for well over a decade.

Adrienne is an Oakland, California, native of Persian heritage who has traveled extensively, studying theater, music and dance throughout Asia, India and the Middle East. Her mission is clear: to weave together the threads of her study and creativity into an original musical fabric that moves and inspires her audiences. Her impressive musical range extends from the sacred to the profane, the mystical to the earthy, the lofty to the down-low, and she is equally at home with acoustic or electric, improvisation, singing gospel, Indian mantras, rock and roll, rhythm and blues and Persian classics.

Adrienne became Baba’s at the age of 18 standing in the doorway of Guru Prasad in Pune while gazing at His photo. She has been blessed to live yet another lifetime of love and devotion with her Beloved Meher. Her deepest longing is for her music is to convey, through her songs, even an ounce of the Love that Baba flows to her, and to share that gift with the Baba that dwells in the heart of each listener.
