Achterflaptekst:

This book offers the first serious exploration of the many different aspects of alternative spirituality. While there is much talk o ‘spirituality' now, no other collection has specifically addressed its many ‘alterative’ - non ecclesiastical in the broadest sense - manifestations. 

The authors aim to open up a relatively unexplored and often quite hidden dimension of religion in the modern world through non-confessional, critical study. They establish both the vibrancy of contemporary experiments in alternative spirituality, as well as its historical pedigree. The broad range of subject matter includes magical ritual, independent seekers and gurus, the Theosophical movement, C. G. lung, turn-of-the-century artistic and spiritual colonies, Iona and Glastonbury, alternative healing, and the influence of secular and humanistic thought. 

Readers of this fascinating book will gain an overall sense of the sociological, anthropological, historical and ethnographical perspectives on alternative forms of spirituality. 

Steven Sutcliffe is an independent writer and researcher in the history and ethnography of modern religion. Marion Bowman is Programme Director of the MA in Contemporary Religion at Bath Spa University College.
