Astral Sex - Zen Teabags
An Illustrated New Age Spoofopedia
"A long overdue and authoritative reference work for anyone two squirts short of the full colonic irrigation." — David Stafford, columnist, Guardian
Astral Sex - Zen Teabags (Findhorn Press £8.99) is a parody of all things new-age and body-mind-spirit, arranged in the form of an illustrated dictionary or encyclopaedia.
This handy and humourous reference guide provides definitions of the most popular new age terminology with laughs on every page. Complete with illustrations of select definitions, this dictionary deconstructs and skewers the most popular and pretentious of phrases. From Archetypes to Peace mongers and so much more, this is an entertaining resource for the new age enthusiast who isn’t afraid of a little self-deprecation.

Irish author and humourist Gerry Maguire Thompson has drawn on his vast and sometimes painful personal experience of such matters in order to produce this work of spoofopedia. Over the last thirty or so years he has followed every guru and undergone every therapy, been taken in by every charlatan, consulted every oracle – indeed, explored every nook and cranny of the so-called new age realm - all the way from the sun-drenched commercialism of California, to the remote mysticism of the high Himalayas
