Places to Go, People to See
I came to Asheville with several skill sets..eight years as an Apple Creative Trainer. I will work on most Baba projects. I do video editing, music (Emmy award recipient,) book design and layout, am an expert in low-cost self publishing and have helped almost thirty people publish their own books. I specialize in graphic design and reproduction, do the graphics for the Asheville Music Sahavas, CD cover art, posters, newsletters, all the way as I said to complete books. I’ve written two books, one historical fiction, “Return To Treasure Island,” and a layman’s introduction to Sufism back to Mohammed, “Among the Sleeping: Sufism Within and Without Islam.” I am the layout walla for the online Baba publication OmPoint International Circular. I am a keyboardist with a home recording studio and work closely with Phil Ludwig at Seclusion Hill Productions in Asheville. I can be best reached by email at email@example.com
Examples of Karl's Work
At Weaverville Yoga we offer a variety of ways of practicing yoga – because human beings are varied. The common thread, the yoga mala, of what we teach is that our way is based on compassion, kindness, inclusion, and commitment. The heart.
From the moment students step inside the door, they notice a sweetness that is not found elsewhere. This is because our classes are centered on the heart – on awakening the heart. Whether Ashtanga, prenatal, Anahata, vinyasa, ballet barre, or gentle yoga our teaching focuses on awakening the heart center, the Anahata heart chakra.
Our mission at Weaverville Yoga is to create a safe, kind, pure atmosphere for people of all kinds to grow and learn through the regular practice of yoga. Jai Baba!

SHRI MEHER SHRINES BY SUSAN MCKENDREE
Shri Meher Shrines offers one-of-a-kind hanging and table-top shrines, traveling altars, and embellished heart talk boxes celebrating the Divine Beloved, Avatar Meher Baba. Handcrafted by Susan McKendree, all pieces are assembled from paper and mixed media and incorporate archival quality, acid free materials, featuring images of and quotes from Meher Baba and His Mandali. Heart talk boxes are filled with hand-folded quotes.
"I was very fortunate to be given a 6-week sabbatical from work to finish a book to go with my native American museum photography exhibit… I went to the Center to write, and out of my pen came…poetry! Baba was part of the inspiration for this, and it was under His urging that I began to recite my work, plus the work of my favorites- Rumi, Hafiz, Mary Oliver, Kabir, Yeats.
I now perform around the country, to music, and all of the work is by memory. I perform regularly in Asheville, so email me if you would like to be put on the email list, or to check and see when the next performance is…I am grateful to be part of a community that celebrates and supports poetry as part of the arts…”
The Art of Tracey Schmidt – http://www.traceyschmidt.com/
Winnie’s love of art blossomed in the third grade when her class made a 3’X6′ diorama of an Indian village in their classroom’s sand tray, complete with wigwams, birch bark canoes, and villagers and wildlife sculpted in clay. Initially she majored in art at the University of Denver, but having varied interests,she changed her major several times,and art went onto the back burner.
As a young adult she dabbled in painting, but again put art aside, this time for about 30 years. Upon retirement she moved to Asheville in 1996. Here she once again began exploring her creative interests. Her first attempt was a three-part collage of a dream she had in 1971 about Baba breaking His silence. Since then her art has focused almost entirely on Baba, through dioramas, collage, greeting cards, jewelry making, and decorative matting of Baba’s image.
She says, “Making Baba art is exciting, challenging, rejuvenating, a way to drown myself in His remembrance”.
