Summary "Bohos are perhaps best described as a group of trust fund artists, broke charismatics, leisure scientists, office averse entrepreneurs, surfer-environmentalists, and/or bon vivant partiers who lead seminomadic, unconventional lives. Their approach to life is based more on creativity than money, but having a few rich friends with homes by a good surf break doesn't hurt. Instead of a luxury hotel, you might find a boho camped out in a teepee in Ibiza, or in a yurt in Mongolia wearing an Oaxacan serape and Valentino espadrilles. It's definitely fun to live vicariously through the lens of these fabulous individuals--what they wear, where they travel to, what they do in their leisure time--and with The Boho Manifesto, it's finally all accessible. Here we learn about the New Mindfulness, including how to enter a state of 'flow' and why to use mala beads, palo santo sticks, crystals, and mandalas for meditation. Topics in the "Body" chapter include AcroYoga, sound baths, natural deodorant, Tantric sex, beauty botanists, and Reiki. When it comes to food, it's all about the new hyphenated cuisine--"cold-pressed," "grass-fed," and 'free-range'--along with backyard foraging and fermentation. When it comes to work, it's about coworking spaces, laptops in paradise, the Micro-Gurus, and never again committing to a 9-to-5 job"-- Provided by publisher.
