In Memory of Alan Admore


by Rona Spencer and Guy Nicholls

In memory of Alan Admore who died in Longwood, Southland on Monday 3rd August 2020.

Alan first came to Wangapeka on a retreat with Catherine Rathbun in the ‘90s. He continued to visit the Centre and offer his keen interest, energy, practical help and creativity in our special natural environment along with others exploring the mysteries of life.

The following apt, descriptive words were written by Guy Nicholls (land caretaker) who knew Alan well.

Alan was such a original big hearted operator,
A moody lonesome pirate,
a frustrated wrestler,
a lover of laughter and games and smiles,
blessed we are for the likes of Alan


Yes he loved laughter and delighted in sharing magic bubbles too!

Invercargill was his home town and latterly he returned there to live in his mother’s old villa. He has friends all around Aotearoa particularly among the many who go to the annual Convergence gathering.


The celebration and thanks for his creative and questing life will be at Invercargill Library on Saturday 29th August.
