Shaky Bridges

Shane ‘Shaky’ Bridges was born in San Francisco in 1946. He dropped out of the University of Berkeley to earn a living as a songwriter and performer. A seminal figure in the hippie counter-cultural revolution that took place in the 1960s in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district, Mr. Bridges studied meditation and yoga for many years in India before coming to Canada in the early 1970s. He became a Canadian citizen in 1974 and was for over twenty years a B.C. fisherman and logger. He lives in a small community off the north coast of Vancouver Island.
