Description
 
Eugene Taylor (au). Traces the lineage of the American visionary tradition through 3 cent. as sustained in a continuous “shadow culture” outside the mainstream. Discusses America’s first Great Awakening (GA), led by Jonathan Edwards & Conrad Beissel. Illustrates the role of altered consciousness in early American religious life. Revisits the luminaries of the second GA, painting fresh portraits of Emerson, Thoreau, & Margaret Fuller, & the shadow culture’s interest in phrenology & homeopathy. Today’s GA is also rooted in a shadow culture -- the counterculture of the 1960s. Focuses on spiritual practitioners who have found fulfillment outside of mainstream institutions & their own cultural heritage -- in Hindu yoga, Zen meditation, Muslim Sufi masters, & Buddhism.
