Sofia Edgren writes in DN about new-age mediums and therapists (2016-02-18).
"I would classify newness as a form of religion with associated individual-centered rites that reflect society in the here and now. Perhaps that's why it appeals to modern people. Today's mobile lifestyle has made people seek "a temple within themselves."" And that, in our stressful era, we also demand quick results. In other words, the Lutheran belief in reward after death feels completely wrong." Anne-Christine Hornborg, Professor of Religious History
