Overview

Memoirs of Dakini: True Confessions of a Former Flower Child is a collection of memories telling of my life in the streets, from the small town of Woodstock, New York, through the Lower East side of New York City, all the way to Berkeley's Telegraph Avenue.

Follow my true story as one of the last Flower Children. Read about my struggles with the drug culture, loneliness, rape, suicide attempts, kidnapping, beatings and the pain which drove me further away from the love I sought.

I first left home at the young age of 13. I bounced back and forth from the streets until the age of 15, when my parents relinquished control and set me free. With only a knapsack on my back and $100 in my pocket, I left home for good on that October night of 1969. My adventures over the next 4 ½ years are detailed in this book.
