Re-Reading the New Age – Part 5 – There and Back Again: A Ramble about my New Age days

+JMJ+ Welcome to part 5 of the continuing series, Re-Reading the New Age. I’ve been thinking lately about how I got into the New Age “movement,” for lack of a better word. I don’t like calling it a movement because it gives the impression that it’s somehow organized, as if somebody were in charge and leading it. There are leaders but no leader.

Re-Reading the New Age, Part 4 – Education in the New Age (continued)

+JMJ+ In keeping with my new old schedule—On the Soul series Thursday, various and sundry on Monday—I’ll be posting my re-read of New Age books series here on Mondays. (Maybe I should subtitle it: If I’d only known then what I know now. And just so you know, this spot won’t be taken up completely with warnings about the New Age. I do post about other stuff, too. I already have some other post ideas that I’ve been meaning to work on.) As usual, notes and links are at the end of this post.
