Not so much in the UK. I was regarded as a "beatnik" in the
mid-50's, which was the equivalent of a "hippie" in the 60's,
but allegedly less 'gentle' (no flower power). I played jazz
(accordion!) studied 1. Astrology; 2. Theosophy; 3. Kabbalah or
Qabalah. My favorite period is circa 1955-1965. TM ideas were
flourishing, and I got the other TM (Maharishi) before the Beatles!
