The Neo Hippies


People say hippies were a phenomenon of the ’60s and early ’70s, but the movement carries on. It is said that the current hippie crowd, sometimes characterized as “bliss ninnies,” focus less on political activism and more on God, meditation, prayer, yoga, eye-gazing, and ecstatic dance (sometimes naked) as a way to capture the altered states previously found through psychedelics. The health focus is on raw organic vegan diets. This brand of bliss is best expressed through imagery, for which we thank Steve Schapiro, who has documented a catalog of photos in his self-published book entitled Bliss: Transformational Festivals and the Neo Hippie, with an introduction by Theophilus Donoghue.
