In Light Times

In Light Times is a post-New Age networking periodical published in Las Vegas, Nevada, but serving Nevada, Arizona, Southern California, and Utah. Published monthly, it is distributed free at sites throughout its target area. In Light Times was founded in 1989 and has steadily grown into a substantive magazine that each month includes a selection of feature articles that covers the whole spectrum of New Age concerns including holistic health, channeling, spiritual development, prosperity consciousness, meditation, global changes, and various transformative practices. It has also been able to include articles by and/or interviews with many notables in the New Thought and New Age community, recent issues including, for example, Marianne Williamson, Lazaris (Jac Purcel), Alan Cohen, Danion Brinkley, Deepak Chopra, and Raymond Moody.

Each issue also includes a variety of monthly columns including book reviews, astrology, and the popular column by New Thought teacher Louise Hay. An events calendar carries notices of related events, especially in the Las Vegas Area. Like many New Age network magazines, advertising is an important feature and fills much of the content of each issue.

In Light Times has been one of the New Age periodicals to make the jump to an electronic format. It offers potential readers the option of an abridged e-mail copy of the magazine and has an expansive Internet site that includes the favorite articles, including editor Michelene K. Bell's editorials, from past issues. The magazine also sponsors occasional events in Las Vegas and a weekly radio show on a local station. In spite of its fame as a gambling/entertainment center, Las Vegas is also a normal urban center with a large and active religious and metaphysically oriented community.
