German-born Gisela is also a photographer, film director, and author. She was part of the sixties and seventies bohemian milieu, mixing with the likes of Dennis Hopper, Hunter S. Thompson, Jack Nicholson, Leonard Cohen, and of course Timothy Leary, the controversial psychologist who researched LSD. But beyond all these job descriptions, Gisela is also a “lifelong seeker”. Gisela and her twin sister Jutta Winkelmann were highly involved in Germany’s “68 Movement”, but they always sought more, more than just belonging to a political movement. They wanted a meaningful life, rich with experience and trying everything that was available. Gisela then married John Paul Getty, they lived in California and they surrounded themselves with likeminded people who were also into new ideas and thinking about the world and humankind, which of course at that time, was heavily influenced by psychedelics. This meant that Gisela was around, when psychedelics became popularized in Western culture for the very first time, and also when the use of psychedelics was very much aligned with changing a whole society and the world.
