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.

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 ›
