Most people as they get older tend to forget about themselves. It seems to be a normal part of the process of life and it happens to the best of us. We forget to reach our own potential because we are far too focused on bringing up a family, working long hours to pay off the mortgage and bills, locked into the cycle of the never-ending treadmill of work and career. It is easy to lose our way and disregard our own existential well-being.

Suddenly one day thirty years later, we say to ourselves, ‘What happened to the person I used to be, what happened to my life? We used to be fun, go to parties, dance the night away at night clubs and have loads of crazy friends.’ Your social life now consists of a bottle of wine at home watching TV. Your friends are getting fewer and fewer because over the years you have focused on everybody else except yourselves.

My name is Stephen Cox, I am 55 years old and I describe myself as a modern hippie. I am spiritual, forward-thinking, a traveller of the world and a lover of life. I paint my brow with the colours of the rainbow, I wear bright multi-coloured clothes and beads and I dance with my whirly friends all through the night. I am happy! I have found hippie happiness, I have found Hippie Kushi and I would love it if you find it too.

Stephen ‘Hippie Kushi’ Cox has lived an interesting life. After leaving home at 16 due to a difficult childhood, he took refuge with some ‘artistic’ friends at a squat in London’s King’s Cross.

Following a brief stint working as a rent boy in Earl’s Court, a lucky break led to an initial career in catering back in Brighton, where he made some great friends.

When a good friend took a job in London, Stephen decided to flat share with him, after being offered a job at the BBC and ITV studios.

A few years later, a chance of a lifetime fell in his lap; he signed up to work as a teacher in The Gambia for a year. This experience then resulted in a complete change of career. At the age of 45, Stephen went to university to study psychotherapy. Sadly, soon after graduating, he was diagnosed with a serious health condition, leading to some challenging years.

But then, he discovered Goa and the wonderful hippie scene there, and everything changed forever.
