The atmosphere at any Yoga Rave, Pure Party, or satsang is so intense that no substances are needed to relax, dance, meet new people and feel as one. When you party healthy, you do not party once a week, or twice a month (and then spend the rest of the weekend suffering from hangover!) – you can (and should!) party every day! Several countries around the world are discovering that partying healthy brings more joy, more friendship, deeper living. Any way who wants to be a raggedy thirty-something by abusing your body? Healthy is cool. Healthy is beautiful.
The two sides of partying
Few deny the joy and benefit of partying. We relax. We come together as one and put aside our differences.
We sing, dance, celebrate. And yet it has become a common practice to combine all these positive activities with activities we know to be unhealthy like smoking, drinking and taking drugs. Some feel that they can’t relax and say ‘Hi’ to a stranger without a beer or dance without getting high. And if one has never been taught another way of relaxing and bring your mind into the present moment – what can you do? Smokers often say that when they ‘pop out’ for a smoke, they feel an intimate bond with the other smokers. So drinkers and smokers are just looking for peace of mind and intimacy, a feeling of oneness. How can we achieve these things without damaging our health and dulling our minds with addictive substances?
