Metaphysical movements. Groups that share a common definition of metaphysics as a practical religious philosophy and that seek to relate spiritual and psychic phenomena to everyday life. Among the groups classified as metaphysical are the older ones—Spiritualism, Theosophy, and Anthroposophy—and a number of newer ones such as the Spiritual Frontiers Fellowship. They tend to blend an occult with a metaphysical stream of thought.
