BIG SUR’S CHARTER SCHOOL AND ART COMPOUND: A FAR-OUT FORAY INTO THE BLISS

In the folds of mountain, tall trees, and ocean, a gentle wind blows.   All feels right with the world.   We have just one more hour in Big Sur, but when we discover this artistic compoud, just down from the General Store, time slows and lulls  us into an alternate universe.  A fantastically  charming school, seemingly contained in the vibe and magic of the  60’s and 70’s, appears, well, magically.

Here,  children feel, smell, and learn in an atmosphere drenched in those ineffable vibrations of a time where magic, wonder and creativity were the norm.  We feel the joy of discovery and the sadness of knowing we will have to leave.   Yet, we know, too, we can carry this magic and wonder and creatvity along with us.   Such a gift, this place.   There IS an ESSENCE here as deep as the tree roots.
