I get the sense that you want to live your life as a "free spirit" you call it hippie or alternative, I just call it being a free spirit and still feel comfortable knowing you'll fit in and be accepted with whatever community you choose to live in.
Living in toronto: the good, the bad & the ugly.
Honestly, I think anyone can live as a free spirit pretty much anywhere in Canada and be accepted and not be judged for it as long as they aren't being a trouble-maker or being a financial and social burden on their community. Be personally responsible, support yourself in your chosen occupation, be friendly, do some good works and volunteer your services for special community events to show that you want to fit in and be socially accepted.
Don't cause trouble in the community, be law abiding, be responsible and take good care of your natural environment and your home, keep them and yourself clean - do all those things and nobody is going to care if you choose to live as and look like a free spirit.
Free spirits have been living the free spirit lifestyle in Canada for two or three hundred years already and not been judged for it, it's one of the things that is attractive about living in Canada. You're already in Vancouver and it was suggested to you last year to check out some of the smaller coastal towns along the mainland and on the islands particularly Vancouver Island to find a free spirited, artsy kind of community that might be suitable to you.
Did you do that, did you go check out the coastal towns? They are all places that have a lot of free spirited and artisan minded people living in them.

No matter where you try to go, you need some income.
Some of these communities rely on members who are trust fund babies. Originally Posted by Mouldy Old Schmo. Nowadays, living as a conservative Christian can be considered an alternative lifestyle in certain areas.

I have lived all over Canada and traveled a bit and let me tell you, much of Canada and the rural parts even the states has a still very large and hefty Christian conservative population. Even Vancouver much to my surprise and dismay seems to be like that. Oh and if they're not outright, the predominate social norms are still drastically influenced by them When will people free themselves from dogma though?
This week’s issue
I see and have met a lot of people who have freed themselves from the dogma of religion, only to become die-hard "New-Agists" and just as set in stone with their beliefs as if they were a religion in and of itself. You know, Eckhard Tolle and all of tat stuff.
The "Think positive" thing I think has become carried away and it's become so politically correct you can't say anything. Please register to post and access all features of our very popular forum.
