The New Age can be very confusing. What are we to make of a movement that ranges from the most profound and wise teachings on the one hand, to people selling crystals on the street corner on the other – and includes everything from occult practices to new science, personal growth to holistic medicine, sustainable communities to channels and UFO abductees? Underneath all the contradictions and confusions of the New Age movement, however, is a very ancient idea, a spiritual idea that can put us in touch with an inexhaustible source of creative energy and vision at the very foundations of the universe. It is a vision of a loving world – a sacred world – and of the creative power in each of us to bring that world into being.
David Spangler has been teaching courses in spiritual development since 1964. In this book, David draws on his more than thirty-five years of experience with the New Age as one of its leading exponents, explorers, philosophers and teachers and on his lifelong contact and communication with the inner spiritual world, to both critique and honour the idea of the New Age and the movement that has developed around it.
Part autobiographical, this book opens up new dimensions of insight and understanding about the pitfalls and the potentials of the New Age. It is sure to become a classic in its field for all those wishing a deeper understanding of the transformative drama of our time.
