New Consciousness Sourcebook

Important New Age guide issued by the followers of Yogi Bhajan (founder of the Sikh Dharmma) in the San Francisco Bay area. The original edition was issued in 1972 as the Spiritual Community Guide for North America. New editions were released periodically through the 1970s. The new name was adopted for the fifth edition in 1982. The last edition, the sixth, appeared in 1985.

The directory covered organizations concerned with spiritual growth as well as such New Age subjects as nutrition, holistic health, healing, therapies, kundalini, bodywork, lifestyles, and meditation. It listed New Age bookstores, publications, occult supply houses, records, and tapes. It was published by Spiritual Community Publications in Berkeley, California. The group also published A Pilgrim's Guide to Planet Earth, an international directory covering the same areas of concern as the Sourcebook.
