In 1967, the summer of love, Jerry experienced a major life change. He moved to California, to follow the path of a spiritual seeker or, as it was called, the hippie lifestyle. Between 1967 and 1981, he lived in a number of communes and engaged in a twenty-one-day fast in the wilderness. He worked as a handyman, vegetarian cook, migrant farmer, furniture mover, and tarot card reader. During this period, he also co-authored a book entitled On Becoming High about finding a higher spiritual self.
Dr. Spiegel lives in San Diego, California. He is constantly exploring and developing modalities for reaching higher states of consciousness. Above all, he remains dedicated to the idea that one’s journey in life is never over until it’s over.
