Editorial Reviews


Monday Night Class, a weekly event in San Francisco conducted by Stephen Gaskin during the heyday of the hippies, attracted over 2,000 people each week. This new edition is a collection of the original transcripts from these historic meetings, with new commentary by Stephen from today's persepctive.

About the Author

Stephen Gaskin was born in 1935 in Denver, Colorado. After a tour of duty in the Marine Corp, he earned his teaching credentials and taught at San Francisco State University for two years. It was there that he became involved with the hip revolutionary movement sweeping the country.

Stephen gained increased recognition in the early 70s when he embarked on a nationwide speaking tour at colleges and churches. Accompanied by some 250 young adults, mostly from Monday Night Class, in 50 school buses and assorted vehicles the tour became known as The Caravan and picked up new members as they travelled across the country.

In 1971 Stephen and the group bought land in Tennessee and founded The Farm, one of the largest and most successful alternative communities in the country. The Farm became renown for soy technology, re-introducing the home birth movement, and founding Plenty International, a relief and development organization. Stephen accepted the "Right Livelihood Award" or "Alternative Nobel Prize" for Plenty in Sweden in 1980.

Stephen, an active speaker on the alternative lifestyles circuit, was inducted into the Counter Culture Hall of Fame in Amsterdam in November 2004. He has five children and three grandchildren and lives with his wife, midwife Ina May Gaskin, on The Farm.

I read this book as a youngster in the early 70's and was thrilled by it and its beautiful cover. My older brother turned me on to it. The author understood where I and a whole bunch of other people were at. The class was an idea of the times, a large group of people undertaking exploration of spiritual truths. Young Stephen Gaskin led the experience, set the structure, and kept everyone calm and safe. I'm grateful to a more mature Stephen Gaskin for making this kindle version available and adding his clarifying notes...not that the original needs clarification. Books by Gaskin and his wife Ina May have had a big influence on me. Monday Night Class is my husband's current favorite bed-time read. The book inspires Self-expression.

Format: Paperback
Today's youth will never even begin to understand the most profound revolution in cultural and reality changing events that occurred during our last generation. Young readers will not understand the nuances and colloquial language written here. This book may have just as well been written by an alien stranded on earth from another world. Stephen Gaskin was "The Guru or Spiritual Leader that brought forth a new way of looking at Reality. Sure, he was part of the "drug culture" of the time, as many others. I lived it; I survived and grew personally through many experiments, states of consciousness as Dr. Tim Leary and so many of the time. Stephen Gaskin, is one of the most Underestimated and "Marginalized" Teachers in American Historical Change, as this phenomena grew beyond the man. Today's youth take for granted the Civil Rights they now enjoy, the New Reality or New Way of looking at Life brought forward by men like Stephen Gaskin and so many others. It was written during an America looking for the world. Just like Mahatma Gandhi so many years ago. American Traditionalist were fighting back as hard as they could, killing President Kennedy, his brother and the unforgettable Martin Luther King. University students began being killed by our own National Guard, all over America, in an attempt to quell the uprisings. Censorship became paramount in the minds of the very powerful and wealthy. Their "sheep" were Revolting! Communes sprang up all over the world, A worl, an EARTH, understood as a Living Breathing Organism called "Gaia" from ancient times - we were coming to grips with a new concept of Living Organization surviving together in a new found concept called "Symbiosis," Life systems working together for Mutual Advantage. Were we a part of that New Way of Thinking?Read more ›

Format: Paperback
A Jewell of a book filled with universal and timeless wisdom distilled from world spiritual traditions, and translated into the counterculture language of the day. A book meant to be read many times over, with new meaning each time, not a sentence wasted. Belongs on the bookshelves of anyone who was part of or has any interest in understanding the counterculture movement, in modern history, or in spiritual teachings. Reading it puts you there, in the moment that it was happening.

My early edition (with only the mandala, not the title), was inscribed by Gaskin years after publication. He wrote, "To Greg, who was part of Monday Night Class, too. Stephen Gaskin."

Everything since the 1960s has been, at best, a simulation of reality, the raw energy of those days. What generation is going to come up with something truly revolutionary? When? Are we all just going to melt?
