Flatter (Our term and our definition)
noun: A person who believes that universal energy, prana, chi and all other forms of energy do not exist and/or are figments of the imagination. Flatters often site current definitions of energy, physics rules and the lack of a known and accepted means of measuring metaphysical energy. They often ridicule practitioners and believers as flakes and hippies.
Juicery (juice bar, juicer)
A juicery is a store that sells fresh squeezed or pressed juices. However, the only juiceries that qualify on our new age scale are those that meet the following two criteria:
1. They offer fresh vegetable juices. A token shot of wheat grass is nice, but it’s far from a celery based spinach and ginger concoction. Basically, if they don’t juice spinach, they aren’t a juicer.
2. The juices are squeezed/pressed on-site. No off-site juicing and shipping. No matter the labeling, it’s too close to Whole Foods.
We like the Wordnik definitions.
n. A Hindu discipline aimed at training the consciousness for a state of perfect spiritual insight and tranquillity.
n. A system of exercises practiced as part of this discipline to promote control of the body and mind.
Regardless of how valid the first definition is, we’re going with the second. All of the new styles of yoga and mindfulness will be included, plus Tai Chi, Chi Gung and just about any other esoteric type of exercise related to the movement of internal energy.
