The New Times

The New Times is a post-New Age networking monthly that serves the Northwest United States, primarily Washington and Oregon. It has adopted a tabloid newspaper format and is distributed free through a variety of metaphysical and health food establishments in the Seattle metropolitan area and beyond.

Each issue of The New Times includes a host of original feature articles, most written by local authors, that cover the wide range of typical concerns that had been brought together by the New Age Movement of the 1980s with spirituality philosophies and practices heading the list. Holistic health is a close second. There is additional concern for such topics as ecology and psychic phenomena. Monthly columns cover astrology, reviews of books, music and transformational tools, and herbalism.

The heart of each issue is the "Resource Directory," the pages of advertisements that effectively delineate the range of metaphysical and health services and activities available for seekers throughout the Northwest. As is common in similar publications, the ads are classified into six major divisions: classes, workshops, and trainings; health services; intuitive arts and sciences; professional services; spiritual organizations and practices; and tools for your journey.

The New Times began publication in the mid-1970s, and continues under the leadership of publisher Deverick Martin and editor David Young. Its publishing headquarters may be contacted at P.O. Box 51186, Seattle, WA 98115-1186 and through its website at http://www.newtimes.org/.
