About your Guide, John

I was a hippie guy, and when I was 17 I decided to leave my parent's home and just stay in the street.

I live on the street since 1982 during the century of hippie, love, sex and freedom. If you walk in my shoes sitting on the Haight & Ashbury just one day - your life would never be the same. I traveled a lot, I have visited all states in the USA by hitchhiking and staying just on the street.

There is just 1 thing that I really regret: I have never been abroad because I don’t have documents and money for this.

I believe in God. I believe in love & freedom.

I refuse the help of the government or church. John's mission is to prove that God's love helps everybody get together. No matter what, even if you're homeless.

What you'll do

Let me be your guide to the world of homeless people in San Francisco.

There is an invisible border between your civilized world and mine. Everybody has an interesting story here...

We're desperate but proud, we live according to different rules of the game. Yes, we don't have money, home, SSN, barbecue parties, but we still exist.

Dare to go beyond your limits and check yourself, could you survive on the street without your decent clothes, without money, without your iPhone, your friends and relatives.

At least, you will feel how is it: be absolutely invisible. It's a very special feeling: passers just don't see you, for them, you're like a post or a tree.

What the Guide'll provide

Special clothes

We give you a suit of a real homeless person for full immersion

Who can come

Guests ages 21 and up can attend.


Bring comfortable clothes for sitting on the curbside. Be ready to schedule a follow-up integrative session with out embodiment specialist. For this unique experience will require processing and integration for you to make the most out of it.

Where you'll be

Usually I stay at the corner of Haight & Clayton. You can find me there everyday
