Question by Brooke H: I really want to get into the whole zen/herbal/ “hippie” way of life, any suggestions on how to get started?
I do yoga but i really want to get into herbs and their meanings and healing powers and other things of the sort. Thanks!

your question is sort of vague.. but you ought to start with whats “real” and not gimmicky. So my opinion would be read a book that is sort of a 101 on buddhism. its certainly not the same as being a hippie, but will give you the foundation to go about self-awaredness in a smart fashion.
as far as true hippie? read up on Timothy Leary or alexander Shulgin. They found some pretty good methods lol.
the herbal side of things can be found out by researching the differences between “western medicine” and eastern medical approaches.
thats a pretty sloppy answer Im sorry, but Im tired. Email me for more info if you want.
