    It's a tricky one this

    but basically I am. It was the way I was brought up, I mean my parents didn't smoke pot (altho their friends did, one of them gave me a bag of grass age 17), but anyway my earliest memories are student parties in my parents garden in 1970. Long hair, paisley shirts and that was...

    No, it's not part of

    that new thing going around. I was born in the '90s but have always been of a sixties mindset. I'm a vegetarian, I listen to pretty much every hippie artist (Janis Joplin!!) I'd love to have gone to Woodstock...there's so many things it's ridiculous. The only thing I don't do is...

    I Am a Hippie

    I would like to think that I'm a hippie. I believe in a lot of hippie ideals, and I love music specifically from the hippie movement. However, my one fault as a hippie is that I'm not a vegetarian. That makes people think I'm not a hippie, for some reason. I do love the...

    People should really try doing things like

    meditating. Sitting in the dark. Really confronting their thoughts as they come. For many people, if you observe the anxiety they go through, they demonstrate a failure to look themselves in the eye, and be honest about the situation. They attempt to deny their reality and try...

    Not Your Typical Stoner

    I don't believe my personal definition of hippi is the same as everyone else's. I do occasionally smoke pot, but my world doesn't revolve around it (anymore). I bathe daily. I try to abide by the saying "Live and let live", and raise my children to honor The Golden Rule. For the...

    What Does 'Hippie' Even Mean These Days??

    Despite my piercings and different hair and the tattoos I will one day Have, I describe myself as a hippie. Why? Because Im a free spirit. I do what I want and I get through life on love and marijuana. If life was to be any other way, I wouldnt choose to be here. :)
