This reminds me of Ascona, Switzerland, where another proto-hippy commune existed in the early 20th Century. Luminaries there included D. H. Lawrence (who was both at Ascona and Carmel), C. G. Jung, Herman Hesse, Franz Kafka, Rudolf von Laban, Isadora Duncan, Paul Tillich, and Mary Wigman. The scene is intriguingly documented in a book called Mountain of Truth.[1]
