BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

AVATAR MEHER BABA (1894-1969) one of India’s most revered spiritual masters, observed silence for 44 years. Of this silence Baba said, “I have come not to teach but to awaken” people’s hearts to the God within. He stated, “You have been given enough words” and that now is the time to put spiritual truths into action in everyday life. Fluent in 7 languages, his messages were eloquently communicated through the use of an English alphabet board, and later through a unique system of hand gestures. About his mission Meher Baba said, “I have come to sow the seed of love in your hearts so that, in spite of the superficial diversity which your life in illusion must experience and endure, the feeling of Oneness, through love, is brought about amongst all nations, creeds, sects and castes of the world.” Regarding spiritual life, Meher Baba commented,“God, who is in everything and everyone, is deaf to formal rituals, ceremonies, and prayers in mosques, churches and temples, but he hears the voice of the heart. When you help others, God knows instantly and is pleased. No amount of prayer or meditation can do what helping others can do.”

PETER NORDEEN (writer/producer) is an Asheville builder by vocation – but by avocation, is a Meher Baba historian, having studied Meher Baba’s life and teachings for over 30 years. A part-time resident of Meherabad, India, Peter is fortunate to have lived and worked side by side with Meher Baba’s closest disciples gleaning from them many stories of life with the Master.

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
