The great Grammy winning drummer Babatunde taught drumming to those of us in the Farm/Garden crew that were interested with some private instructions for a few days in 1989. More below...
Esalen Staff Week group photograph
I'm hoping to hear something from or about any of the people we knew the years we were at Esalen. Here
is a picture of the largest group of staff members I have from one of the years I was there...from the
Staff Week group photo 1989. Pictured are all of the paid employees of Esalen at that time.The image is so wide
you have to pan right to see everyone.
I think I took this picture myself with a timer at the same time Tom Galloway was taking the 'official'
photo also with a timer. The image is in black and white which is the film I was using at
My husband just bought a new fax machine which also has a scanner built in. This has motivated me to scan into our computer some of my old photographs. I thought perhaps other Esalen people would be interested in seeing some of them as they show a number of our friends from when we were living at Esalen from 1988 to 1990.
I'll try a few now and see how it looks. If anyone would care to comment I'd like to hear...and of course we'd love to hear from anyone shown in the photos too. I haven't done this before and have tried to make the images smaller but I'm rather stuck on 2nd one. I'll have to update later if I can. Here are a few of the garden/farm crew both my husband and I (long before we were married) were in back then.

This story about the Anne Frank footage popped up on my "AOL Welcome" page when I logged in this morning. After I read the article and looked the the rest of the YouTube videos linked to it, especially the haunting "virtual tour" of their home (hideout), I started to read the comments and then I started to get truly frightened:
