It was 1969, the year of the Manson family murders and the ensuing fear of "hippie cults." But that same year, another sort of family was established, a young, white-robed tribe of outlaw mystics living communally in a mansion in the Hollywood Hills and serving the likes of John Lennon, Warren Beatty, and Marlon Brando at a famous Sunset Strip vegetarian restaurant called The Source. The Source was the brainchild of Jim Baker, a former war hero, convicted felon, disciple of Sikh guru Yogi Bhajan, and health food visionary -- a man who evolved into the spiritual leader to more than one hundred apostles who followed his esoteric teachings and philosophies of natural living. "Father Yod" -- or "Yahowha" (Baker's new incarnation) -- was an outlandish figure dressed in velvet robes or all-white three-piece suits, surrounded by a coterie of devoted women. He drove a Rolls-Royce and fronted the now legendary psychedelic rock band Yahowha 13, whose original recordings are treasured by fans who consider them "one of the most righteous, kick-ass American psychedelic bands of all time." Yahowha's spectacular death off a Hawaiian cliff in 1975 was not the end of the Source Family.

This extraordinary true story is told by Isis Aquarian, one of Yahowha's still-devoted thirteen wives, who has maintained a visual, aural, and textual archive documenting the group at every stage of its existence. This heavily illustrated book also includes a full-length CD of a never-before-released performance of Yahowha 13 performing at Beverly Hills High School in 1974.

Jailbreaking the Goddess is a revolutionary revisioning of the feminine divine. Where the maiden, mother, crone archetypal system is tied to female biology and physic...
