Description: From Shirley MacLaine's motion picture spiritual biography Out on a Limb to the teenage witches in the film, The Craft, New Age and Neopagan beliefs have made sensationalistic headlines. In the middle to late 1990s several important scholarly studies of the New Age and Neopagan movements were published, attesting to academic as well as popular recognition that these religions are a significant presence on the contemporary North American religious landscape. Self-help books by New Age channelers and psychics are a large and growing market annual spending on channeling, self-help businesses, and alternative health care is at $10 to $14 billion an estimated 12 million Americans are involved with New Age activities and American Neopagans are estimated at around 80,000-100,000. This book introduces the beliefs and practices behind the public faces of these controversial movements, which have been growing steadily in late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century America. It offers a general introduction to the varieties of New Age and Neopagan religions in the United States today as well as an account of their origins and development. The book also provides a rich description and analysis of the spiritual worlds and social networks created by participants in these two movements. What is the New Age movement, and how is it different from and similar to Neopaganism in its underlying beliefs and still-evolving practices? Where did these decentralized and eclectic movements come from, and why have they grown and flourished at this point in American religious history? What is the relationship between these movements and other religions in America, particularly Christianity, which is often construed as antagonistic to them? These questions are explored through historical and ethnographic accounts.
