67 Flashbacks: Palo Alto, Birthplace of Sex, Drugs, and Rock ‘n’ Roll


Unbeknownst to most — Palo Alto, California, and it’s surrounding area, is cited by some sources as the birthplace of the 60s hippie movement. In an autumn tribute to the 50th Anniversary of San Francisco’s ’67 Summer of Love, Palo Alto’s Midpen Media Center took a 50-yr look back at Palo Alto’s psychedelic counterculture with Psychedelics Scholar and Institute of Transpersonal Psychology Co-Founder Dr. James Fadiman; Ecopsychologist and Author, “Circling San Francisco Bay: A Pilgrimage to Wild and Sacred Places” Dr. Ginny Anderson; and former Silicon Valley Software Engineer and Producer/Host of “Future Talk” Martin Wasserman. All three guests experienced the psychedelics/human potential scene firsthand, and host Debbie Gisonni, former Executive Director of Stillheart Institute, guides them back to the iconic summer of 1967 and the revolutionary roots of the “sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll” generation. Peace & Love!!
