Awareness of The Source Family, YaHoWa13 & Father Yod has been growing since their early 1970s heyday - A spiritual commune dedicated to a wide-ranging blend of Eastern & Western mysticism, They were very much a part of the infamous era of tuning in, turning on & dropping out in the late 60s & 70s.

Their celebrity hangout vegetarian restaurant, rock band, utopian commune & beautiful women made them darlings of Hollywood’s Sunset Strip; but their outsider ideals & controversial spiritual leader Father Yod provoked local authorities, leading to their dramatic demise. ‘The Source Family’ provides an unparalleled insider’s view into the cult / commune phenomenon & wild social experimentation of the 70s; a penetrating and bittersweet examination of the joys of the free love generation & the contradictions that lay beneath the surface of their peaceful, easy feelings.
