Mixing new and old ideas as well as looking to both the spiritual and humanistic urges of the common person they have struck upon a winning business model for the modern world. I'd recommend buying shares early because I think there's a stock split on the horizon.

The umbrella of New Age Religions allows for those of us who do not completely agree with the other major religions out there to have an opportunity to express ourselves and our personal beliefs without using the term "agnostic" which most people assume these days is just another branch of Judeo-Christianity. I personally write on this topic on examiner.com as the Memphis New Age Examiner. Do a google search for New Age Memphis, and I'm in the top 10 results. Paganism, Wicca, and other New Age beliefs merge older paths with newer to allow for spiritual growth without ignoring other possibilities. Perhaps those of you who think us "worthless" should spend some time truly researching your own and other beliefs before handing out meaningless labels.

Needs to be more specific, however, Most of what is classified as "New Age" is really just old occultism, modernized by bored people, forgotten and then ressurected in the sixties. If you feel the need to practice this, more power to ya. But if you ask me (and I realize that you have not) there are 6 major religions to choose from, why feel the need to pony back to something recreated by bored aristocrats?

It's a very diverse umbrella of religion that have no connections with one of the most alienating religions EVER (Christianity).
I'm into some New Age myself, but not all of the things under this umbrella.
Very spiritually lifting to one's soul.
Better to connect with the universe than to spend precious amounts of time praising a deity doesn't even EXIST (GOD).

I'm not sure what definition of "New Age" everyone is using.  But then, it is a catch all phrase used by those who have no idea what religion certain groups are participating in.  My personal opinion is:  If your religion, no matter which one, helps people to become more kind, more considerate of others, and encourages personal responsibility for one's decisions and actions, then what's the harm if they use a different name for God?

The perfect answer to all religions. Man made, man manipulated, man adjusted to fit any and all agendas and promiscuous and perverse life styles. Deities always willing to adjust their attributes to please the lowest desires and caprices of men. Straight, one way path to eternal damnation.

Somewhat more obvious with their horsedroppings than most religions.

Actually has the appearance of being a large, semi-organized marketing ploy to keep alternative bookstores and incense sales going.

Oh, and by the way - Satan is a Christian and Catholic creation, he's mentioned in YOUR bible. And you can keep him thanks - he's got nothing to do with what I believe...oh, but if people aren't worshipping your god, then they must be worshipping your devil? LOL Get a grip on reality.

To simply explain the New Age Religion is to say it is a mix of east and west Religions that cater for western society!!!! Most of the practices that are in the New Age are a mixture of Hinduism and Buddhism with a few other strands. Yoga, mind, body and spirit, meditation/trances, Chines healing (medicine, practices.) e.c.t are all intermingled, given new names but derive from Eastern beliefs. Basically it is packaged differently for western society!!!! Sorry folks: but when you have studied in depth about Eastern philosohies and beliefs, you will see what the New Age is; nothing more than rehashed eastern beliefs.

No, Irishgit - it's about the broadening of our minds in the age of open-mindedness and looking beyond the norm to learn more about other beliefs.  We are priveledged today that in most parts of the world we can read what we want and worship how we want.  Be thankful that the knowledge is available that was one kept so secret.

The New Age movement includes elements of older spiritual and religious traditions from both East and West, many of which have been melded with ideas from modern science, particularly psychology and ecology. The New Age has borrowed from all the world's major religions with influences from Spiritualism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Shamanism, Sufism, Taoism, and Neo-Paganism being especially strong. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Age

I'm not a religious person. See religion is all about following traditions and spiritual rules that man made up. I only follow the rules that God set forth in his word. A religion is a good place to hide from God. What I seek is a true relationship with God, and there is nothing religious about that. What I seek is righteouness!

New age religion?A system of belief that is seemingly on the rise and popular with the youth whether they are consciously or sub-consciously aware of this revolutionary calamity that is to uproot all moral foundation of an authorative God to be replaced by the god in one's self..?It's prime gospel to indulge rather than abstain.A vision that was contemplated by Aldous Huxley,later capitalized by Aleister Crowley and filtered through the Crowley disciple/enthusiast Timothy Leary who wanted people to be/live free of God which A.Crowley established the law of Themela a greek work meaning'intention' his"religious system"was Do as thou wilt.This religious system was given a stroke of genius by T.Leary by way of main stream music than to television so it was/is adopted,admired,and practiced by many of the famous;which has now evolved into anything goes especialy in the form of sex be it music,film,books,conversation,etc...Aleister Crowley a very learnt man also a known satanist is pictured back row second from the left on the Sgt.Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band cover(I stand corrected of position) wanted to woo the world with his doctrine of the celebration of the human passions which is today the case of our global society.Pause for a moment listen,look,and learn what our youth are chanting it is extreme rebellion against us,God,the human race as a co-ordinated unit,morals,principles,ethics which can only result in disaster.If you think times are wicked at this very moment,wait a few years then you will say"remember the good old days,"Our children are made to believe evil is good and good is an obsticle for happiness this is the new age religion "do as thou wilt,"we saw a brief insight of what life is like without law,authority,and God in New Orleans after the hurricane the people behaved like beasts"do as thou wilt"this doctrine of Crowley echoes through the hearts of men and drives them to their sensual capacity to be almost oblivion to all except themselves"to serve the god within us"Timothy Leary...The New Age Religion.

I think New-Age stuff is worthless. (Who could forget the crystals in the late 80's and early 90's) But remember, Chistianity was once regarded as lowly as any contemporary crystal-weilding new age religion. . .

It's not really clear what you mean by New Age Religions. In your list of religions, I see that you have forgotten to name the fourth Abrahamic religion, which is recognized by scholars as the second most geographically-widespread religion in the world after Christianity, and which might be rated by people who don't know much about it as New Age. So I'm not sure what you put in this category. But guess what Jews and Romans used to say about Christianity for the first few hundred years?

Like so many deceptions, this philosophy is wrongly-named. There is nothing new about New Age. It's just another time-worn, man-centered, occultic false religion (or proliferation of religions). The simple truth is found in Acts 4:12, i.e., salvation in Christ alone. Dead religion is a bore - seek a personal relationship with Jesus Christ instead.

I cannot beleive what I am reading!!! 'Occult?' 'Worthless'. Well excuse me, oh high and mighty Christains! Forgive me for being so bold as to beleive something different. I'm sorry I'm so evil- wait, no, that's not right. Because last time I checked in a history book it was the Christians burning people at the stake. It was Christians killing anyone who was different. It was Christians proesecuting those with different views. Did I say was? I meant are, because you're still doing it, you neo-nazi religouse fanatics!!!

Yeah, they can rightly be lumped together into one category "New Age Religions" because they seem to all be based on some sort of pseudoscientific principle mixed with old druidic or pagan beliefs. Like any other religion, it is filled with sad, frightened people who need some kind of supernatural justification for whatever. If it makes people happy, then who am I to piss on their parade?

From what I can tell, those who are New Age, seem to believe in almost everything. They say they are gods, some say they are Christians, yet they believe in other "prophets" - so I feel very sorry for them because they are sadly misled. Why take a chance on your eternity when the Bible says Jesus Christ is the Savior?

Not too keen on New Age stuff, though for others I'm sure New Age beliefs have their merits. I prefer my God the traditional way. I realize that that is not for everyone. Not much for crystals and Ram and all that sort of stuff. And I really think someone like Shirley MacLaine is a bit of an eccentric.

New Age religion is just the same old pagan farce that every generation has generated in one form or another since the begining of time. It’s like taking an old can of poison out from under the sink and painting a bright label on it with the words “Drink Me” in bold italic across the front. Take a sip and you end up just like the last person who did. Spiritual suicide with a simpy, smiling face. Why do I keep seeing the face of John Edward so clearly?
