Three Lost Worlds: A Memoir of Life Among Mystics, Healers, and Life-Artists

January 30, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Monday January 30th

7 to 8 pm

Jim Gilkeson will be discussing his book:

Three Lost Worlds: A Memoir of Life Among Mystics, Healers, and Life-Artists

This spiritual coming-of-age memoir takes the reader on a storyteller’s journey into three tiny, experimental sub- cultures in the U.S. and Northern Europe. In a series of short interlocking vignettes, spanning the years from 1949 to 2015, Gilkeson traces his unlikely path from a conven- tional upbringing in the Midwest, down the psychedelic rabbit hole, and into the ferment of the late 1960s. He emerges as a brother in an order of modern mystics and later as a practitioner and teacher of energy healing at a clothing-optional retreat center. Three Lost Worlds is a re- flection on a pivotal period in American spiritual history, the heartfelt journey of a modern seeker caught up in the protracted spiritual walkabout of a generation.
