Scarce document of the intersection of alternative psychiatry and the communal living movement, a confessional journal written by a therapist while working at the White Bird Clinic, an alternative medicine free clinic in Eugene.
Nebelkopf had been exploring psychoactive drug therapy through his 1970 “Cripple Creek LSD Experiment”. This book chronicles his experiences as a crisis intervention therapist while living communally with other therapists and volunteer doctors at White Bird. Nebelkopf also documents the conferences that the White Bird commune attends across America. A frank, funny, and compelling document of the beginnings of the alternative medicine movement in 1970.
