Over the last few decades Australian society has changed dramatically, and these days many people are taking an unabashed interest in the mystical, otherworldly and paranormal realms as well as yoga, meditation, Eastern philosophy and alternative forms of healing and personal growth: a paradigm that has been loosely dubbed New Age. Supporting this trend, various retail outlets have opened up around the country that purvey a range of paraphenalia such as self-help books, crystals, massage oils, meditation music, yoga mats and much more.
Ranging from mediocre to very good, these New Age shops can now be found in most parts of Melbourne and rural Victoria. What is your favourite place to shop for New Age supplies and why? In your opinion where is Melbourne's best New Age shop?
