The Woodstock Music and Arts festival was a uniquely spiritual moment in history: amidst the chaos of the Vietnam War and the political upheaval of the late sixties, the hippie generation turned to the nonviolent leanings of eastern spirituality. According to photographer Elliott Landy, "There was peace and harmony despite conditions that might have set off riots. Woodstock became a symbol to the world of a better way of life-of freedom, of love, of spiritual union between many. There was hope."⁠
