Summer of Love / Human Be-In








Three years ago, we presented a fairly extensive post on the January 14, 1967,  legendary San Francisco,  "Human Be-In"
We'd like to direct your attention to it here

Meanwhile, fresh up on You Tube, is this "Be-In" documentary, with priceless footage of Allen, Gary SnyderMichael McClureand all the participants/celebrants who took part in that extraordinary occasion.

The event that ushered in "the Summer of Love" - (tho', yes, as early as January!) - Re-visit the Summer of 1967 in the Summer of 2014.  Peace and Love everyone!

    1. I am writing a novel that uses the Be-In as a center piece. I would love to hear what your memories of the events were, especially about the Diggers, the attitude of the crowds, the children, alternate consciousness (especially from meditation)
