From acupuncture to Zen, from the Inner Directions to the Cultural Creatives, the baby boomers will start retiring in 2008, and what a long, strange trip it has been and continues to be. What happened to the counter-culture of the 1960′s and where are they now; in a high-rise office building in Manhattan or on an island in British Columbia? Find out how the legacies of the 1960′s and 1970′s are still with us and are continuing to provide a significant contribution to the global culture.
