The book is focused on the phenomenon of the new spirituality and the impact which it appear to have on the religious sphere and the contemporary culture. It refers to three particular European movements—the Anthroposophy of the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner—a movement which has influenced many social spheres like pedagogic (the Waldorf education), medicine, art, etc.; the movement, created by the Bulgarian spiritual teacher Petar Danov, known as the White Brotherhood, turned into transnational spiritual community; and the Unified Teaching of the young Russian spiritual writer and healer Zor Aleph, developing between Russia and Bulgaria. The work, based on the anthropological methods of fieldwork and analysis, aims to examine the significance of the three movements and their national and transnational specifics in the framework of the European spiritual sphere.
