1970s California Counter-Culture with Peter Coyote


Peter Coyote is an accomplished actor in more than 130 films, an Emmy Award-winning narrator of over 200 documentaries and 17 audiobooks, and author of Sleeping Where I Fall, The Rainman’s Third Cure, The Lone Ranger and Tonto Meet Buddha, and a book of poetry titled Tongue of a Crow.

Here he describes his work as director of the San Francisco Mime Troupe’s road company in the 1960s, providing free performances in parks. This led him, and other cast members, to found an organization known as the Diggers – providing free food, and eventually a free store. He also describes the use of drugs in this era, including heroin and psychedelics. Eventually, he moved to a commune in Olema, California. His adventures included encounters with native American shaman, Rolling Thunder; Pulitzer Prize winning poet, Gary Snyder, and serious practice of Zen Buddhism.

New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). He is also the 1st Prize winner of the 2021 Bigelow Institute essay competition regarding the best evidence for survival of human consciousness after permanent bodily death.
