I was a video-game-addicted *** hole. Then, I started throwing parties.
After treating carnage at music festivals as a medic, Jacques embarked on a journey to transform the entertainment industry by applying health and happiness research.
Launching Party4Health in 2017, Jacques’ objective was to popularize a new style of partying, which was drug-free.
After numerous interviews (including VICE media) hundreds of international parties, and a meditation retreat, Jacques realized that his project went beyond partying. He was developing a new form of wellness practice, founded on human connection.
Before Jacques launched VYVE, he traveled the globe learning the art of connecting and liberating strangers (AKA starting a dance party anywhere, anytime).
Jacques threw public dance parties on trains, beaches, and streets in Puerto Rico, the Netherlands, Germany, Costa Rica, Mexico, France, Denmark, Malta and England.
Over 300 parties, he developed a new framework for socializing: vyving.
“Stop deferring moments of celebration for the weekend. The true benefits come from a daily practice, independent of drug use.”
“Making people laugh at me is better than a society deprived of laughter.”
“Whatever you want to call it: Aliveness, Natural Euphoria, Bliss, Ecstasy. One thing is certain. Human connection is one of the healthiest paths to access this feeling.”
"Every human has an innate capacity for creating joy and spreading it." - The Party Scientist
