J. Holden

J. Holden is a local poet and clinical psychologist who showed up in Mendocino County  just as legal LSD and the State Hospital in Talmage were winding down. He shares his memories of how back to the landers changed the way that life and death were done -- while finding their way back to traditional practices.

We'll hear about the wisdom of a rattlesnake, how water flows downhill, and what Holden learned about building homes and marriages.

We'll also hear some of the highlights from his performing career, which include singing "Who is Your Guru" for a crowd of drunk realtors and standing on his head in front of a crowd from sheer delight.
