Founder of VYVIFY, Social-bonding Fanatic, and Chief Experience Facilitator
Jacques has three obsessions.
1 Creating an optimized entertainment experience based on neuroscience and social-bonding research. 2 Reducing the burden of drugs and alcohol on society. 3 Teaching people healthy ways to boost their vitality.
After witnessing the carnage of music festivals as a medical staff, Jacques began on a journey to transform the systems that encourage unhealthy social behaviours. Launching Party4Health in 2017, Jacques’ objective was to popularize a new style of partying, which was drug-free. After numerous interviews, hundreds of parties, and a lot of self-growth, Jacques realized that what he was working on went beyond partying. This was rapid social-bonding. VYVIFY was born therein.
You can find Jacques roaming the globe, or the streets of Vancouver in a banana suit, carrying a large speaker. Of course, with an ecstatic smile on his face.
Jacques’ Party Count: 154. Jacques has traveled to Puerto Rico, Amsterdam, Montreal, Vancouver, Whistler, Seattle, France, and Copenhagen to throw parties.
1 Starting a dance party, anywhere and anytime.
2 Conducting workshops about health and leadership.
3 Eliciting natural euphoria in a group of strangers.
4 Injecting communities with social connectedness.
“Stop deferring moments of celebration for the weekend. The true benefits of partying 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.”
