I must admit that I have become more disenchanted with many of the "new agers." The "I have a special gift for humanity and it is yours for just $19.95."

Several years ago, I began taking a class in the Hermetic tradition. The teacher told me that all the real knowledge is passed verbally from teacher to student (in his case, for $80 a class.) I'll never forget what he said: "No one is going to be able to sell you the secrets of the universe for $12.95." Being broke, I didn't attend the class.

A couple years later, I saw he had published a book based on the class. It was selling for $13.95. I didn't buy it.

That said, you know the difference between a New Age retreat weekend and a Pagan festival?

Two decimal places. :D
