Nice to talk with you last Friday about Esalen from BART as I was heading into SF, and to see you at San Francisco Friends Meeting on Sunday as well.
What was the house called where you were interested in its experiments or similar, and where you went to this house in the early 1980s in SF but didn’t experiment?
I think my Harbin book
Harbin Hot Springs Actual/Virtual Ethnography –
Hippies, Warm Pools, Counterculture & Clothing-Optional, Virtual Harbin
by Scott MacLeod
... will join the three Harbin books I mentioned ...
Oneness In Living: Kundalini Yoga, the Spritual Path, and the Intentional Community
The Big Bang and the Harbin Experience
... which are written about in this recent Harbin publication … http://www.harbin.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Harbin_40th_anniversary.pdf (which publication is accessible here too - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2015/02/helix-aspersa-heart-consciousness.html) … I did read “Esalen” (2008) but none of the others, and you mentioned 4 Esalen books (we both may have been looking at Amazon together concurrently) for me to look at, and I’m partly emailing to check if these are they, particularly the one by Michael Murphy, which doesn't have Esalen in its title (or was it another):
The Upstart Spring: Esalen and the Human Potential Movement: The First Twenty Years Paperback – February 4, 2004
by Walter Truett Anderson (Author)
Esalen: America and the Religion of No Religion Paperback –
November 1, 2008
by Jeffrey J. Kripal
On the Edge of the Future: Esalen and the Evolution of American Culture (Religion in North America) Paperback – July 20, 2005
by Jeffrey J. Kripal (Editor), Glenn W. Shuck (Editor)
The Future of the Body: Explorations Into the Further Evolution Of Human Nature Paperback – April 21, 1993
by Michael Murphy
I may first check out Murphy's or Anderson's (see his interesting WAAS).
All of these books may be good to talk about with an eventual publisher ... I'm sending my proposal to Duke University Press this week I think.
Just heard Stanford's Bill Burnett talk in some Youtube videos and was impressed. I added him x 2 to WUaS in the "Design," "Career counseling," and "Finding a job you love" wiki subjects - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Subjects. Do you know of Burnett?
Hoping to get the state of CA BPPE initial accrediting forms done with L.V. by WUaS monthly business meeting this Saturday - still seeking the $5000 for this and did a kind of first outreach at Scottish Country Dancing on Monday - http://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2015/02/asteraceae-musical-outreach-talk-for.html.
This is exciting ...
hoping we can explore and build a whole virtual earth world interactively with realistic avatars eventually in digital goggles in Google Earth Pro with OpenSim/Second Life ...
