Explores the origins and directions of the personal growth movement- how did it all begin and where is it heading? The key message now is that we should all seek to be visionaries ourselves, to explore every way possible of expanding our spiritual horizons...Many people are intrigued by the diverse spiritual undercurrents in contemporary society while not fully appreciating their significance. An increasing number of people are now pursuing Eastern spiritual paths - meditation, Tai Chi, Kundalini yoga - or Western metaphysical approaches like the Tarot, the Kabbalah, gnosticism or neopaganism. Others have turned to classical mythology or ancient native traditions like shamanism for their spiritual perspectives. And amidst all this diversity there is a seemingly endless profusion of workshops on creativity, motivation, spiritual awareness and transcendence...So, how did it all begin and where is it heading?..This book explores the origins and directions of the personal growth movement, with a special focus on its holistic and spiritual undercurrents. Written accessibly while drawing on extensive research, Exploring the Labyrinth explains why this contemporary movement may herald a new approach to spirituality altogether - one which is universal and experiential, rather than constrained by formal religious belief and one which respects the ancient wisdom traditions wherever they are found...Exploring the Labyrinth traces the origins of the New Spirituality and examines the contribution of transpersonal psychology, global ecology and shamanism to the new perspective while exploring the age-old relationship between science and spirituality...Nevill Drury is well known for his writings on shamanism, visionary consciousness and the Western esoteric tradition and has participated in transpersonal conferences and workshops for nearly two decades. The former editor of the holistic health journal Nature and Health, he holds a Masters degree in anthropology and is the author of over 40 books.
