Abstract: The New Age movement, which began in the 1960s, caused a profound impact on contemporary culture and spirituality, affecting both the formation of values and concepts and the everyday practices. This worldview has spread over society, creating a form of spirituality that pervades even the traditional religious institutions. This paper seeks to raise the constituent components of the New Age movement, both the set of beliefs and values, as the field of practices. The survey was conducted based on studies by Brazilian and foreign authors, trying to systematize a framework of the constituent components of the New Age ethos. These components were divided into three categories: meta -empirical framework of meanings; systems of practice; and forms of organization and membership.
