5.0 étoiles sur 5 for best health. Be in tune with what your body ... 29 décembre 2014

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Very interesting book with text and pictures about 'hippy related history, perspectives, and artistic and vegan development' from Germany to California, from 1883 to 1949. The long-haired 'nature and health' movement in a sense, with substantial artistic and philosophical support within the movement. An interesting and passionate part of western societal development.
But ultimately, it's been found that path doesn't fit well for most people.
And to mention about one point, from what I've known in my life, with much personal flesh, blood, and bone experience, and that of many others, most humans are optimally omnivores, for best health. Be in tune with what your body indicates as a dynamic living being, and proceed accordingly, reasonably.

This is a great gateway to little-known Germany-California history. Beautiful artwork and mind-blowing information is contained here. The ideas and practices are timeless, so perhaps it's not strange there were people living freely and naturally so many years before the more widely-known health and Nature movements of the 1960's and beyond. Great book!

I have waited a long time for the republication of this fascinating book, which languished for some years as just a few expensive copies. Now out in a new edition I heartily recommend it to anyone interested in the roots of this era's back-to-nature and sun-worshipping groups. Some earlier reviews grumble about the price, but that no longer applies. -- well worth $19. And scroll down to Alicia Bay Laurel's in-depth review that was posted lo some ten-plus years ago: "The Roots of Counterculture" Run Deep by Alicia B. Laurel on July 28, 2005. Couldn't have said it better!
Bravo, Gordon, and thank you!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Roots of Counterculture Run Deep 28 juillet 2005
Par Alicia B. Laurel - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Until I read Gordon Kennedy's research into the German nature cults that flowered in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, but whose roots preceded the Roman Empire, I did not fully understand my own art, writing and music, or my own life. Unbeknownst to me until I read Kennedy's books, my books Living on the Earth and Being of the Sun express fully the health practices and joie de vivre of those bygone frolicking pagan nudists. They are my true ancestors, the parents who would be proud if they could see me now. The naturist subculture lives on, and occasionally has its day in the sun, Children of the Sun being a case in point.

Anyone influenced by counterculture, and all students of history and sociology, will want a copy of Children of the Sun, or, at the very least, Kennedy's scaled down pamphlet version Hippie Roots and the Perennial Subculture, if only for the gorgeous photographs of the freaks of old, and the documentary/psychedelic art by German painter Fidus (1868-1948). No less thrilling are the revelations about Ascona, a counterculture settlement peopled by the likes of Hermann Hesse, Carl Jung, Isadora Duncan, D.H. Lawrence, Arnold Ehret and Franz Kafka in the early decades of the twentieth century. Kennedy notes the influence of the naturists upon Gandhi, and the dawn of the ecology, naturopathy, and youth hostel movements, including an astonishing environmental manifesto by Goethe.

Kennedy points out that feminism, vegetarianism, pacifism, communitarianism, organic farming, earth spirituality, fasting, raw food diets, and nudism flourished among these German counterculturals, some of whom moved to subtropical parts of the USA, often southern California, to avoid the rising imperialism and materialism of their homeland at the turn of the century. Settling in (then) remote areas of pristine beauty, including Tahquitz Canyon, near Palm Springs, they mentored the American naturists known in the 1930's, 40's and 50's as Nature Boys. The most famous of these were eden ahbez, who wrote the jazz standard "Nature Boy," and Gypsy Boots, who appeared often on the Steve Allen Show, and influenced countless baby boomer hippies through his writings, performances, and recordings.

I can easily imagine Kennedy's books inspiring documentaries, dramatic feature films, and museum exhibits.

Transcript of Radio Broadcast continues...
Of greater interest to us on the Alternative Health Report ( are the persons most directly influential in the Nature Cure movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries: Sebastien Kneipp, Aldolf Just, Louis Kuhne, Benedict and Louisa Lust, Arnold Rikli, Arnold Ehret, Otto Craque, John and Vera Richter. As well, there were other personalities such as Bernarr Macfadden, Henry Lindlahr and a host of local health and healing heroes who followed along.
GORD KENNEDY has saved their names,preserved their legacy, and reaffirmed their spirits and this brings a certain delight to the knowlegable reader. On one hand KENNEDY shows the connection and influence that shaped the Naturopathic movement. On the other the renaissence Raw Food-Vegan movement which is now in the militant forefront of vegetarian food reform. Pioneers in this field include Arnold Ehret, Herman Sexauer, John and Vera Richter and Otto Craque and of course, the original Nature Boys of the 1940's (Eden Abbez, the best known of the group who wrote "Nature Boy"- the big hit of '48 . The book offers short biographical sketches of these pioneers and their contributions.
I found that this book is an easy read with lots of eye pleasing photos and art work. In fact the book is mainly pictures! Overall, a modest GORD KENNEDY, who bills himself as editor, has brought together, in this book, those unique and highly interesting social trends and ideas, like Eastern religions, nudist groups, and organic foods (along with lots of pleasing visuals) which only a short century ago were unusual, radical and revolutionary. Kennedy shows us how it all began. ...And, yet, today it all seems so mainstram America!
