In Search of New Age Spiritualities

Adam Possamai

$229.99

Hardback
The search for an adequate understanding of the New Age phenomenon is fraught with difficulties when examined within the perspectives of sociology of religion. This book advances our understanding of the so-called New Age phenomenon by analyzing accounts of insiders' religious experience and orientations. This approach is brought to bear not only on the study of written documents relating to New Age and its putative antecedents, but on the analysis of in-depth interviews with thirty-five spiritual actors.
