Practices

Alternative Healing

Most new agers embrace non-scientific healing techniques. Homeopathy, crystal healing, magnets, etc.

Divination

This covers all areas of predicting the future, including astrology, and discovering hidden information, including dowsing and pendulum healing.

Meditation

An "empty your mind" version of meditation is extremely widespread. In effect, the New Age says "lose it, don't use it." Practitioners tune-out by emptying their mind through chanting, etc.

Yoga

Most people think that yoga is simply a set of exercises designed to relax a person. However, according to top yoga teachers ALL yoga is actually designed to release the "Kundalini" force - a serpent spirit coiled at the base of the spine. Thus, as well as being a New Age activity, yoga is also highly occultic.
