Like others of that hippie generation we were fed up with the West's political and religious institutions that had got us into a meaningless war and a meaningless lifestyle.
We cut out of both and started to try to find a better life - this is our story - and by a kind of miracle - you can actually be with us - right from the beginning.
In 1970 we began to study a young man who broke away from the institutions of his day - but his life and thoughts had now been effectively buried by the conventions of our institutions. So - we commenced our digging in an old movie theatre one Sunday morning, and some of us still live like him forty years later.
Throw away your mental baggage and sit where we sat in those heady days when life became new for so many of us.
