Steve Klein – Artist In Residence – March 26-30, 2019
Meher Center welcomes Steve Klein—Poet, Author, and Storyteller
First visiting India in 1972 with his wife Daphne, and for many years after that—and even living there from 1982 to 1986—Steve has since published four books of poetry and helped edit many books about Meher Baba, including the last five volumes of Glimpses of the God-Man, and Intimate Times with Meher Baba by Bal Natu and three volumes of Eruch’s stories that were collected in That’s How It was.
Each afternoon Steve will host chats about Baba’s mandali and about life with Baba. These informal sessions of stories and poems will last about an hour and explore a variety of themes, including surrender, inner versus outer life, suffering, and Baba’s personal presence and humor. In addition, Steve will share two evening programs of “Poems, Stories, and Songs” with guest musicians, exploring the journey of being with Baba through joy, humor, song, and story.
