New Age

Definition of New Age

The term ‘new age’ is a very broad term that embraces anything eclectic that seems to have taken popularity in the last 60 years or so. It’s identified by alternative ideas that differ from mainstream Western culture and traditions.

New Age pursuits include spirituality, metaphysics, holistic health, humanitarianism, and environmental issues. Many of the practices that are included under the banner of the New Age aren’t new at all, though. Some of the activities are actually thousands of years old, and are simply regaining popularity as new age followers grow tired of traditional Western society and its standards.
