About the Author:

Nevill Drury is the former editor of the Australian Holistic and Health Journal, 'Nature and Health'. He holds a Masters degree in Anthropology and is the author of over forty books.

From Booklist:

One could object that this spirituality is not really "new," for its roots are deep in human culture, extending back as far, perhaps, as the Paleolithic period, with its nature animism and shamanism. What is new is the way contemporary spiritual seekers draw from many spiritual traditions and mix in psychological ideas from such thinkers as Carl Jung and Abraham Maslow. Drury's intelligent, insightful book reveals the historical and theoretical underpinnings of contemporary spiritual movements in an authoritative but never authoritarian manner. Drury, an expert in shamanism, seems genuinely open to and curious about various traditions and movements, and Shirley MacLaine, Aldous Huxley, bardo consciousness, and the Buddha share pages without the sound of axes being ground anywhere in the vicinity. A good, solid treatment of the subject. Patricia Monaghan
