Of course, we are accessible through e-mail and consulting the calendar can tell you when the Center is open. But you should also be aware that Northern California has two distinct Baba groups. This web site is put up by the group centered in Berkeley, CA, with the common meeting place in El Cerrito, CA (see below).
Many of Northern California’s Baba community are from the “baby boomer” generation, having come to believe in Meher Baba’s divinity during Baba’s lifetime or a bit after. Seekers of a younger age may prefer to exchange their thoughts or questions about Baba with people of their age and cultural perspective. For contacts with such persons, send an e-mail to the “contact” address. Visiting the center will tend to put you in contact with the Boomer generation. The center is located in beautiful El Cerrito adjacent to Berkeley.
