New Age Spirituality

Короткое описание книги

New Age and holistic beliefs and practices - sometimes called the &quote;new spirituality&quote; - are widely distributed across modern global society.

The fluid and popular nature of new age makes these movements a very challenging field to understand using traditional models of religious analysis.

Rather than treating new age as an exotic specimen on the margins of 'proper' religion, &quote;New Age Spirituality&quote; examines these movements as a form of everyday or lived religion.

The book brings together an international range of scholars to explore the key issues: insight, healing, divination, meditation, gnosis, extraordinary experiences, and interactions with gods, spirits and superhuman powers.

Combining discussion of contemporary beliefs and practices with cutting-edge theoretical analysis, the book repositions new age spirituality at the forefront of the contemporary study of religion.
