On Corpus Christi and Refuting New Age Dogma

    Today it is Corpus Christi. And recently we observed at this weblog: “New Age culture moves in lockstep with the modern, liberal culture. And like that culture, it has little time for Christian understandings of the Fall, evil and sin. It tends very much to share the secular supposition of ‘Original Innocence’. Like the […]

The New Age Decision: Saying Yes means Saying No …

    Today, I return to an old theme of this website – the New Age movement. As I have said often here, I got caught up in the New Age, when both the movement and myself were very young. Around 1979, age 15, I began to read of the Findhorn community in northern Scotland […]

On the Growth of the New Age Movement and the Withering of Christianity …

    Last time, we ripped an extract on the New Age movement from my upcoming book, Cor Jesu Sacratissimum. Now my book (among many other things) details how I became caught up in the New Age around 1980 – at a time when New Age thinking had still not exploded into the mainstream. In […]

An Unusual Catholic-New Age Dialogue (Long Years after Leaving Findhorn)

Twenty five years ago, I was an enthusiastic young member of the Findhorn Community in Northern Scotland.
