The Hippie Revival is a collection of writings (essays, reflections, poetry, and haiku) that center around the resurgence of the hippie counterculture. Like the original hippies of the 1960’s and 70’s, Forrest Rivers shares with us his vision of creating a spiritual society that rests on the core values of peace, unity, and love. Additional themes that are also addressed in these writings include: the sacredness of the natural world, the use of psychedelics for personal insight, the commune as an alternative model of social organization, the intersection of social revolution and spirituality, and a questioning of the meaning behind “progress”. These writings are also something of an homage to the early hippies who dared to dream of a better, more peaceful world. So sit back, enjoy, and allow this book to uplift your spirit!
