Summary
  • The most current New Age is not new at all, as Eugene Taylor shows. It could be seen as the third Great Awakening of America to the varieties of religious experience. Often referred to as pop religion - especially by its detractors - this awakening is a profoundly psychological one which stresses the alteration of consciousness, the integration of mind and body, and the connection between physical and mental health
  • Like its predecessors, today's Great Awakening is rooted in a shadow culture - the counterculture of the 1960s. Taylor examines the growth of this eclectic movement by focusing on spiritual practitioners who have found fulfillment outside of mainstream institutions and sometimes outside their own cultural heritage - Christians who study Hindu yoga or Zen meditation, Jewish psychologists who have attained the rank of Moslem Sufi masters, and American-born Buddhist nuns
  • These recombinant pilgrims are our modern-day visionaries. Though their ideas were initially greeted with skepticism, they have come to play a dominant role in our culture. From Zen meditation techniques employed by professional athletes, to the widespread popularity of acupuncture and herbal medicine, from the ascension of yoga and yogurt, to the guiding principals of the 12-step movement, this new spirituality is evident everywhere
