Fun read

This was a nice sandwich bite of a read. The stories contained in it from the author's life were very fun and the information was very useful and will definitely motivate many and inspire many more great daydreams. While not all of us will be painting Hendrix on the side of our house, it is still fun to watch avocado pits sprout and learn hippie baby names.


So way brought me back to growing up late 60's early 70' I loved this book.

Find Your Bliss!

Chelsea is way cool....grew up in a commune and all. She takes me back to my Berkeley days hanging out on Telegraph! She covers alot with such a great sense of humor and love. Chelsea shows you lots of fun things to do and tells you why they are so important to the hippie lifestyle. Like taking time to smell the roses and getting in touch with your inner being. Also the illustrations are fun. Stick it to the Man....Thanks Chelsea for making this book! Peace

Yes, I AM a hippie!

I don't usually like novelty books but this one was quite entertaining and informative. I keep going back to it. Find out how to tie-dye, macrame, make "oregano brownies", (I think I'd use mint instead of oregano), wear proper attire and don't bathe too often. I love learning about name origins so my favorite section was on naming babies. I passed with flying colors--giving my daughter a proper hippie name--even before reading this book. It all adds up--I'm a hippie! Hey, man, I'm going to split, light some incense, listen to some Joplin, and--later I'm going to meditate. Namaste.
