Called "an exciting vision of the future” (Cleveland Plain Dealer), “a handbook of the New Age” (USA Today), and “a new charter of human possibility” (Norman Cousins) upon its initial publication in 1980, The Aquarian Conspiracy is a breathtaking, compelling study of the changes in work, relationships, medicine, religion, education, and more that comprised the birth of the New Age movement.
An influence on thinkers from Deepak Chopra to Al Gore, The Aquarian Conspiracy remains a thorough, detailed classic of contemporary thought—an impeccable document that traces one of the most powerful cultural movements of our age.
The clearest statement on the intellectual, historical, and spiritual background for the New Age movement.

I come from a dysfunctional background. So dysfunctional that as a very youn man I considered suicide. Alas, I decided to try life because from this vantage point I could always change my mind but not the other way around. Being committed to the trials and tribulations of growing out of my dysfunction to becoming a fully mature adult I have read and reread many books. From the likes of Adler, Freud, Jung, Maslow, Pavlov, James and Socrates I have decided that my life is really worth living after all.
Then I dicovered The Aquarian Conspiracy. This book led me to discover my soul. It led me to discover my heart. It taught me that there is a God.
My favorite passage from this book is a quote from Tielhard that follows:
"The day will come when, after harnessing space, the winds, the tides, and gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, we shall have discovered fire".
This book is truly transformative. Bring a dictionary.

i would like to say that i was in complete awe when i read this book. it was all the things i have believed in, only in writting, from a person i had no clue about. i am also amazed that this book was published nearly two decades ago and i am just finding about it. but the most amazing thing is how i came acrossed it. i was just walking threw the library waiting for my sister and spotted the word aquarius (my friends all know that i am very fond of being an aquarius and always joke around about being a 'conspirator') so i did'nt even really look @ it , i just grabbed it and took it home to read(i love reading by the way). i read the book in two weeks, it was all i did. and i've read it two other times. this is what lifes about. i don't think anyone could write a perfect book about life, but marilyn did a dam good job. in times where soon we are going to have to start asking some serious questions about alot of differant problems,i.e.,governm.,environ.,the lives were living,etc.,etc........., i think this book has 100% potential to help open new doors and other great ideas. life is starting to develope way to many problems and we need to start doing something about it. if your willing to open your mind and start developing a greater state of mind you certianly will after you read this book. i would like to also thank marilyn for beinWas this review helpful?
