Review by Ann Ulrich Miller
Teena Booth wants to restore the New Age Movement on Planet Earth.
Back in the ’70s and ’80s, those of us who carried the vision of
transforming the world into something better were not ashamed of
the label “New Ager.” (I admit, I was one of them.)
then, somewhere in the ’80s and ’90s, that label grew to be some
kind of badge that represented “woo-woo” concepts and the excuse
for the status quo to find fault in those who were striving for
higher consciousness and healing of the planet. Light workers
shied away from the label and began calling themselves “spiritual”
or... nothing at all.
wanting to be labeled, many of us went our separate ways, did our
own individual kind of spiritual practice, and missed out on being
an actual “movement” that could have risen up and transformed our
world long before now. Somehow the concept of “New Age” got all
mixed up with every single idea that was “way out there,” such as
crystals, channeling, tarot cards, Wicca, the occult and ... yes,
extraterrestrials. (I tried not to take this too personally.)
says that walking through the aisle of your favorite book store
and stopping at the “New Age” section, you will see topics of
books that really have nothing to do with what the New Age really
is. In other words, today’s New Agers are not only more discerning
and more practical, but they are more interested in being of
service to others and helping heal the planet.
to Booth, it is not a movement of crystal-crazed, esoteric
madness, but a movement much better equipped to bring real
transformation to our lives in both a personal way and
collectively. “That late ’80s version of the movement clearly
needed to go,” says Booth, “but in many ways, I think we threw the
baby out with the bathwater. The world needs saving now more than
ever, and it’s clear to me that if the New Age had been encouraged
to grow and mature into a fuller expression of its core idealistic
values, the world would be in a much better shape today.”
with high ideals, interested in the environment and social
transformation, did not want to be associated with “New Age,” even
though that’s what they were and still are. A rose by any other
name is still a rose, after all.
disappearance of the New Age label left tens of millions of people
who explore alternative spirituality without a spiritual
identity,” says Booth, “and consequently, without the means to
amass the social capital necessary to achieve a better-world
Unfinished Evolution, Booth says that reviving the New Age
movement would enable spiritual progressives to join together
under a common identity and allow them to tap into the power of
their numbers when addressing threats to the future, such as
nuclear war. “The only way to save ourselves from global warming
and the other effects of a failing value system is through the
concerted efforts of a holistic-minded community, like the New Age
once was and could be again,” she says. “I have three kids, and it
upsets me that they’re growing up surrounded by dread over
economic collapse and environmental disaster.”
has launched a Web site, called www.newagepride.org, which is
dedicated to the development of the New Age community and its
ideas. It, along with her book which is due out in November,
focuses on the core mission of uniting progressive groups to come
commend Teena Booth for her warrior spirit in writing a
thought-provoking book for the “non-traditional,” label-averse
spiritual types who just might discover there is good reason to
take on a label after all.
The book contains excerpts from blog entries, a section on
philosophy outlines of the basic precepts of New Age thinking, as
well as a section on politics, a quiz, a “map of spiritual
growth,” lists of books, Web sites and even the top 10 movies that
Booth says express a New Age point of view.
for one, am not ashamed to be known as a “New Ager.” Some time ago
I adopted the philosophy that it’s really none of my business what
other people think of me. Whether you agree with Booth or not, the
book puts things into a new perspective.
