Abstract

Spirituality is re-embracing the magical and otherworldly, and in this timely investigation Sara MacKian makes an important contribution to our understanding of the social science of contemporary spiritual evolution. Putting 'spirit' at the heart of spirituality, the author takes seriously the otherworldly experiences of everyday spiritual seekers, and through extensive fieldwork, establishes an exceptional view of the contemporary spiritual landscape. By exploring the everyday impacts of alternative spiritual beliefs and practices the book gets to the heart of what an enchanted spirituality looks like and how critical social science can map and understand it. Everyday Spirituality is an essential read for anyone with an interest in developing a deeper understanding of spiritual evolution in modern Western societies.
