Despite these times of ignorance and anger, alternative spiritualities are surging in America. People are increasingly seeking the benefits of Gnosis and engaging heavily with New Age. Can Gnostic philosophy work in modern times? What are the benefits and challenges of the New Age movement as a whole – like appropriation and merchandising? We find all of this and more, including understanding modern manifestations of occultism like meme magic. Lastly, we recap the Gnostic America Conference and address overlooked esoteric exemplars like Nevil Goddard.
