It seems like I read once that Queenstown, New Zealand is a real New-Agey Mecca.

In the US there are specifically New Age communities in or near the following


Big Sur in California - Home of Esalen Institute
Boulder, Colorado
Fairfield, Iowa - Maharishi University of Management is in town and Maharishi Vedic City is nearby.
Salem, Oregon
Sedona, Arizona

My car was totaled by other idiots. I love sedona but it think the place has too high of a vibrational level for me to live there. I get so high off of the enegry that radiates there. I was thinking of flagstaff but 100 in of snow a year is bad. I loved Durango CO but thier winters are horrid. I too am looking for a metaphysical minded community. Now I live in El Paso TX. My partents live in the 4 conners area, Farmington NM and I would like to live 5 hours away from them max but I still want to live in a new age/ metaphysical town. I am a nurse and would need a town that doesn't have too many nursing programs (the town isn't flooded with nurses). I am allergic to dust and mold and high desert seems to work well for my allergies. So a place with not too much rain and not too harsh of a winter and I need live nature around me. (The desert is dead and then it blows so it creates lots of dust.) I'm into meditations, crystal therapy, Reiki, Tarot, enegry therapy. I'm not into any organized religion (probally because I was raised around Sikhs the first 5 years of my life then went to Unity), but meditate believe in God and work on my spiritual progress. I want to find people who think like I do. Any suggestions for me?
Ever thought of trying Cottonwood AZ? It's only 25 minutes from Sedona and not as intense energetically but quite open. It's also cheaper with more ammenities.

Not in Salem at all. Ashland, definitely.

How about Nashville, Tenn? Are there any metaphysics there? I am considering moving there, but I wonder if there are some enlightened people in the area as well as culture? (outside of country music)

Mount Shasta - California, USA

There is a new age idea that Mt Shasta is a energy power point(they had some big harmonic convergence conference there at one point). A lot of this draws back to the original native tribes' belief that it was a sacred mountain.

But then there is a nuttier idea that begun in the 1930s that the Lemurians, a race alternatively described as little dwarf-like or super tall, inhabit the center of Mt Shasta. I think there are crystals involved somehow too.

Not sure how the new age scene is down there these days, but back in the earlier part of the decade while I was in college I remember going to a few new-agey rave-type events around the area.

I second the Mt. Shasta suggestion. I've heard it recently called the "New Age Mecca," so although I don't know what it was like a decade ago, I think it's still going just as strong.

Rome, Italy.

OK, perhaps not the sort of metaphysical city you were thinking about...
