HASH(0xa843c660) out of 5 stars A HELPFUL "DICTIONARY" OF NEW AGE TERMS/CONCEPTS June 22 2011
By Steven H Propp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Belinda Whitworth is also the author of Infertility (Natural Way).

She wrote in the Introduction to this 2003 book, "The New Age movement is concerned with just about every area of existence... I wanted this book to be a simple introduction to the main themes, but, when I started to write it, I discovered that I knew a lot less than I thought and that the movement was much wider and older than I'd imagined.... one of the basics of New Age thought is that we don't have to take anyone else's word for it but your own anymore... so absorb what you like from the book and ignore the rest."

Here are some additional quotations from the book:

"CELTIC FESTIVALS: These were adapted for use by Christianity and form the basis of modern-day Paganism. Four are related to the sun (solstices and equinoxes), and the other four mark the changing seasons and would probably have been celebrated at the full moon... The Celtic day started and finished at sunset." (Pg. 47)
"NATUROPATHY: Naturopaths are the family doctors of 'complementary medicine.' They use a variety of therapies to support the body's own healing power, especially fasting, nutritional therapy, and hydrotherapy. They see disease as having three causes---structural, biochemical, or emotional---and emphasize the importance of proper food, clean water and air, exercise, rest, and positive thinking." (Pg. 158)
"PAGANISM: Pagan literally means 'country dweller,' and the term was used originally by the Romans for the tribes they conquered. As these originally had non-Roman deities, the term acquired religious connotations and came to be used for non-Christians. Today's Pagans, also sometimes called Neo-Pagans (new Pagans), are inspired by pre-Christian religions such as Witchcraft/Wicca, Druidry, Shamanism, and the Northern Tradition." (Pg. 172)
