Katharsis

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Katharsis, a now-defunct spiritual community, was begun in 1971 by a group of people attempting to establish a community that would focus on spiritual growth and harmony. The group obtained land near Nevada City, California, in 1974. Katharsis emphasized spiritual growth and self-realization through the study of yoga and related sciences; the development of a natural lifestyle based on diet; cooperative living; and promotion of the practice of astrology as an aid to a fuller life. Katharsis published a solar-lunar calendar every year and sold a line of astrology products.
