Calendar & Circle Center Reservation form
Update 2021: Zoom. etc.
Avatar Meher Baba's Circle of Friends (CoF) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to bringing forth truth, love, purity and beauty. Per our Bylaws, “We are aspirants who strive to remember Avatar Meher Baba through love, fellowship and service to one and all.”
Almost 5 years ago, we acquired a 3600 sq foot space in the Myrtle Beach Mall, which we call The Circle Center, directly across the street from the Meher Spiritual Center. We are open to host meetings of just about any kind: we have hosted speakers and musicians traveling through the area on pilgrimage, crafting or dance parties, book releases, Sahavas and reunions, just to name a few… before COVID we were host to 8-10 events a week. Anyone with an idea for a meeting or with something to share with the community could reserve our space. We met our obligations entirely through donations from participants or through regular contributions from donors like you.
Since COVID and concerns about meeting in enclosed spaces, we have moved our attention to Zoom, with the same universal mindset – that anyone with an idea for a meeting or with something to share with the community could create events on Zoom, and we would provide the platform to help them deliver it. The number and range of meetings has skyrocketed to over 35 meetings a week and growing, with everyone’s pooled creativity, energy and dedication. Just as in our physical space, most events are not “sponsored” by the Circle of Friends, and what happens within meetings is the responsibility of the event anchors. But, their enthusiasm, and the love and attention of those who participate, is what makes our Circle so dynamic. The Circle is YOU. Welcome to the Circle, friends. Make yourselves at home!
