A neo-hippie is at peace. At peace with world, good and bad. He (or she) knows that the enjoyment of Life, whatever his circumstances are, is the most important aspect of living. He enjoys all activities, all genres of music, all kinds of people, and sees the unique beauty in everything. He watches the world with an objective eye, seeing all sides of a story. He does not stare at the negativity he sees; he looks at it and finds within it positivity. He knows that civil liberties are innate, and to deny anyone those is outright wrong. He does not fight for what is right, he pushes the right past the wrong, for hatred helps nobody.. He controls himself with a free restraint, hurting for he knows it will pass with time, loving for he knows that it is the best feeling a person can experience. He experiences everything there is to experience, because from those his ever-changing soul grows.
Girl: "Wow, that girl's a bitch."
Neo-hippie: "So what?"

Boy: "I hate gay people!"
Neo-hippie: "They're just like you, except they like the same sex."

Girl: "Eww, I look fat in this shirt!!"
Neo-hippie: "No, you look beautiful and curvyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy."

Boy: "I like punching people in the face."
Neo-hippie: "I enjoy the breeze on my face, in my hair when I'm driving in my car with the windows down."

Neo Hippies come in two forms: the real and the fake. First we will deal with the real. Real neo hippies are individuals that come in all different colors, sizes, subcultures and habits, but all agree on one thing: free is best and everyone's invited! These environmentally and socially-conscious people are inclusive, in tune (with the earth and themselves, recognizing the good and bad within each) people that love listening to late '60's/ early '70's music, watching '60's/'70's movies and think Bob Dylan is a prophet. Neo hippies embrace all types of music though. (They may also listen to Phish, but this band usually identify the preferences of fake neo hippies.) Although they usually attempt to be extremely health conscious (vegans, vegetarians, semi-vegetarians, yoga, meditation), they most definitely smoke copious amounts of pot, most times cigarettes and partake in harder drugs with no remorse; or don't do drugs at all because they feel it clouds their state of consciousness. They do not mind a smelly person and usually have personal hygiene issues themselves. Love the great outdoors and go camping, hiking, backpacking at least 7 times per year. Has gone on at lease two trips to the mountains solo. Sometimes can be characterized by flowy clothing (women); but as stated before, the real neo hippie is person of many undertakings and attitudes, so can not be identified by clothing. Definitely into Boca burgers (even if they eat meat), incense, health food stores, Patchouli, thrift stores finds (which is distinct from 'hipster' thrift store style) and making sure everyone feels a part of their parties, gatherings, etc. They realize that inclusive is the new exclusive because the people that are there are the people that are suppose to be there. Can be found volunteering at the local non profit, community-oriented organization. Usually a self-described activist that is anti-war that frequents protest marches and loves 'organizing.'

Fake neo hippies are usually white suburban kids who often wear patchwork pants (guys and girls), plaid shirts (guys) and have dreadlocks (girls and guys). They love Phish, Umphrey's McGee and String Cheese Incident. Very inclusive group of individuals that are drawn to others that dress and look the same and are frightened by diversity. Basically yuppies and suburbanites who decide to wear patchwork instead of Gap, but possess the same shallow ideals and large bank accounts care of mommy and daddy.

I once heard an excellent word to describe the fake neo hippies: trustafarians.
If you have ever had a party where everyone's invited, you may be a real Neo Hippie .

If you have been to more than 10 Phish concerts but have never had a conversation longer than 30 minutes with a person of color, you are indeed a fake Neo Hippie . Please check yourself!!

A neo-hippie is a being who cares about themselves, nature, and the ones around them. Someone who embraces all life and love. A neo-hippie does not see borders, lines, boundaries, color or faith. He/She sees themselves, their life and their existance.

Oh yeh:
Someone who doesn't smoke weed to "get baked"

A free-spirited persuer of happiness, peace, love, unity, and freedom. Without trying to be a 'modern hippie,' or tries sport peace signs as much as posible or look like an actual hippie from the 60's and or 70's. Nor is it really about style, (although powerpop scene kids do seem to follow under the this new label's stereotypical 'style') it's more about their attitude towards life.
She's so happy and doesn't care what people think, I love that neo-hippie.

inheritors of the 60s hippie counterculture but also have received influences of recent new movements and subcultures such as punk (check out anarco-punk/peace punk), rave/psytrance, environmentalism, new age, rastafarianism, anticonsumerism/anticorporate movements, among others.

those most politically engaged as well as the sixties hippies tend to be on the libertarian left with a more pronounced green politics emphasis. neohippies of the nineties and 2000s have alingned themselves in causes and campaings related to the anti-globalization movements and in some places in antiglobalization events there will be small blocks of hippie or hippie looking protestors who tend to reactualize situationist and yippie and diggers political happenings.

now some tend to be mostly just about a way of dress and a certain sensibility while others who are more radical will practice more radical lifestyles engaging in doit youself practices and small community cooperative systems usually earning a living outside regular office/factory jobs with a tendency towards craftsmanship or the arts.

A passion for discovering new things and new people motivates many to backpacking (and sometimes by hitchhiking) and in some particular cases highly nomadic lifestyles. a continous daily living in this way gives neohippies many resorts and a lot of skills of surviving and having fun without too much or any compromise with consumer capitalism and bureaucracy.

usually with a relaxed attitute and a smile. open to encounters with most kinds of people, this doesnt necesarrily means not resorting to selfdefense or rejection of certain kinds of people (wealthy kids, yuppies, fascist skinheads, stupid agressive punks, police, army, among others) and in many times with friendships and lovers in some segments in similar subcultures and groups (nice punks, leftist and green activists, vagabonds, bohemians, artists, rastas, social centres and squatters activists, among others).
many tend towards a relationship with new age culture and practices or things like buddism or neochamanism, others emphasize more bohemian lifestyles (party, many friendships and lovers, artistic interests) and others radical political and lifestyle practice or all or some of these things.
nice punk girl: (looking with desire) you are nice

These are a group of modern day people that don't contribute a whole lot to society. They work part-time jobs, save up their money for summer "music festivals" and drugs (mainly extasy and acid) and listen god aweful dance music and "jam bands". The majority of their time is spent sitting around and making shit for each other, such as braclets and dresses. These people don't have any beliefs in commen with the 60's hippies, seeing as they don't stand for anything anymore. They live for drugs and believe in the now dis=proven theories of "free-love" and "communal living". They are a true stain of society.
Hey man, you going to 10k this year? I'm gunna trip so hard. Whats a protest? What, me vote? Man, I love these Neo-Hippies
