9780140195958: The Penguin Book of New Age and Holistic Writings

As we enter the 21st century and millions of us turn to new and practical ways of coping with the modern world, the New Age and Holistic movements have become hugely popular and influential. Now, in the information age, we have access to a wide range of alternative therapies, complementary medicine, new scientific perspectives, Eastern philosophies and distant cultures to help us achieve physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. But what are the ideas behind Holism? This inspirational and authoritative guide introduces the major concepts and great thinkers of the New Age and Holistic movements, showing how they have influenced the way we now think of health, religion, philosophy, sexuality and feminism. It offers wisdom and advice from some of the best-known and most respected writers of the New Age, including Louise Hay on emotional healing, Deepak Chopra on the prevention of aging, Ram Dass on psychedelia, M. Scott Peck on the nature of love, Jonathon Porritt on overcoming greed and self-interest, Carl Jung on dreams and Carlos Castaneda on shamanism. With eight sections covering all aspects of Holism, each with an enlightening introduction by William Bloom, this is the essential New Age handbook.
