"Come together!” was the cry that became a Movement
in the ’60s. It was in the heart of a whole generation,
fueled by a desire for a love we sensed was possible and
a justice we knew the world needed. Woodstock in 1969 offered
the hope that people could actually come together and love
one another, caring for each other, being loyal friends
and lovers forever. Something basic in the human spirit
was ignited to motivate a new generation to abandon the
status quo and strike out to find the elusive dream of love.
The writers of this paper are children of the ’60s.
We want to touch something deep inside your soul? something
more than a memory. If you still have a spark burning
to capture the elusive dream of a life of love, our hope
is to rekindle it by introducing you to the Movement we
were looking for, a real place to belong, and the true hope
that does not disappoint. We write with a present hope for
the future, not a nostalgic memory of the past.
Back in the day, our generation believed that we could
change the world by focusing our lives on love, not hate;
peace, not war; sharing rather than greed. What was it that
gave vision to the Woodstock Nation? Was it real? Where
did it go? Is that hope still there in anyone? Is anything
left in the soul of the Woodstock generation that still
longs for peace on earth and justice for all mankind?
So, what gives us hope? We see the changing of our lives
into the image of a dream. We actually are learning to love
each other — to come together and not fall apart when the
going gets tough. We invite you to get to know us, to open
up your heart, and see if the same heart that compelled
you all those years ago, just might find fulfillment of
that desire that lay dormant beneath the clutter of middle-aged
We speak in love having come through the ’60s and
everywhere after that. We’ve been humbled by the realities
of our desperate need for life. We want to share what we’ve
found with you ał in the hope that you are still looking
for a life of love ał only this time, we invite you to come
move in to the reality of our life. We can give you the
addresses where this true movement of love has been growing
since the time when the sixties movement faded. Nothing
magic or hallucinogenic, just a life where people are learning
what it means to love ał to love others more than self —
and to reap the fruit of the spiritual seeds we are sowing.
It produces life and peace, especially in our children.
