American Metaphysical Religion: Esoteric and Mystical Traditions of the New World

by Ronnie Pontiac Author

American spirituality is a rich and diverse tapestry, woven together from threads of many different cultures and traditions. In American Metaphysical Religion, author Ronnie Pontiac takes us on a journey through four centuries of American occult and spiritual history, from the colonial era to the present day New Age and QAnon movements. Meet the Rosicrucians, alchemists, and astrologers who first brought their esoteric teachings to the New World, learn about the spiritual practices of enslaved people, Native Americans, and Latinx communities, marvel at esoteric luminaries such as the Pagan Pilgrim, Tom Morton, and discover the work of mystical abolitionists, spiritual teachers, and occult authors.
