Peter Nordeen is a builder by vocation—but by avocation, he is a Meher Baba historian, having studied Baba’s life and teachings for more than 40 years. Peter was a resident of Meherabad when many of Baba’s old disciples were still alive. From them he had the opportunity to glean many stories of life with the Master. In 2003, Peter wrote and produced the biographical documentary GOD IN HUMAN FORM: the Life and Work of Avatar Meher Baba. A few years later, he produced the music video “You Alone Exist.” Peter has written several histories of Meherabad used for historical walking tours and for the Trust website. He has just completed a booklet entitled “The History of the Tomb-Shrine of Avatar Meher Baba.” Peter and wife Debbie continue to make yearly trips to Meherabad, where Peter works on projects in the AMB Trust Archives and AMB Trust Publications, as well as helping with historical building preservation.
Debbie Nordeen is a choral conductor and singer who enjoys leading Baba choruses in Meherabad during her winters there and at various events such as the Southeast Gathering for Meher Baba, the L.A. Sahavas, and Meherana gatherings. Years ago, when Peter and she were residents in India, Baba’s sister Mani wrote a few songs that she asked Debbie to notate for sharing. Debbie holds these times with Mani as deep treasures in her life. Debbie looks forward to sharing music with Baba’s lovers at the Rocky Mountain Sahavas.
