Finding Your Tribe

 According to Seth Godin, author of Tribes. “A tribe is any group of people, large or small, who are connected to one another, a leader, and an idea.”   But, as is the American way, when one belongs to a tribe, outside categorizations inevitably start to creep in. Labels, assumptions, classifications, restrictions. All words that don’t fit into the Highbrow Hippie vernacular. Anyone who doesn’t fit squarely into your tribe is deemed deficient in some way – so you like dogs, love to draw but don’t recycle? Sorry, not a fit. Love cross-fit workouts but aren’t vegan? What kind of new age healthy person are you?

Waxing Poetic

I own a waxing studio, so I consider myself an authority on waxing. What to do, what not to do and what to do it with.

Give it Back, Pay it Forward….

When we first had the idea for Highbrow Hippie and drafted our Manifesto, we made a commitment that we would always try to be as transparent and authentic as possible, offering our readers the good, bad and ugly.
