Abstract:

A behind-the-scenes look at a 1970s phenomenon, this study--written by someone who was involved in and a key member of the movement--discusses Therafields and how 900 people came to live in a therapeutic community in Toronto. The stories of the participants, who not only lived together but also helped build a real estate empire, and the charismatic but not accredited founder Lea Hindley-Smith are explored with unparalleled access to their lives. Also examining how the downfall of the commune coincided with the 1980s property bust, this is a comprehensive look at a therapeutic commune.
