Karl and Katherine with Ram Dass: Prague, June 1992

Ram Dass, Karl, and a critical mass of other interesting contributors presented at the International Transpersonal Psychology Conference, “Science, Spirituality and the Global Crisis: Toward a World with a Future” in Prague, Czech Republic.

Ram Dass was a spiritual teacher, psychologist, and author. He helped to popularize Eastern spirituality for multiple generations of Americans.

Ram Dass’s book Be Here Now revolutionized Western access to yogic concepts and is considered a seminal text to the hippie/counter-culture movement.

‘Be Here Now’

“We’re talking about metamorphosis
We’re talking about going from a caterpillar to a butterfly
We’re talking about how to become a butterfly.”
