“The New Age Movement also rejects the authority of the established church, with its belief that spirituality is within, and that it is up to each individual to find their own path to inner truth.

The spiritual shopping approach of the New Age seems to correspond with the centrality of consumer culture to postmodern societies.”

Makes sense if you think about it!
