What Does the Word ‘hippie’ Mean?

I keep getting called a ‘hippie‘. It seems to be the only word some people can think of to describe me and my husband’s way of life and values. I know I should correct them and say that I am actually a ‘Cultural Creative‘ but I don’t.

What I’m wondering is, what do people mean when they use the word ‘hippie‘? Is it for lack of a better term? Or are they mocking?

It makes me sad to think that people feel the need to outwardly mock conscious living. What makes it so funny? And why does it make people react in a hostile way?

If you love what you read on Rise of the Innerpreneur, please consider expressing that value to me. The amount you give is not important, it is the thoughtfulness of your gesture that I appreciate.

I will personally thank you for your expression of love, support and value.
