Description - Retreat: How the Counterculture invented Wellness by Matthew Ingram
The counterculture of the Sixties and the Seventies is remembered chiefly for music, fashion, art, feminism, computing, black power, cultural revolt and the New Left. But arguably more important than all of these, both to its core identity and in terms of its ongoing significance and impact, is its relationship with health.
In this popular and illuminating cultural history of the relationship between health and the counterculture, Matthew Ingram connects the dots between the beats, yoga, meditation, psychedelics, psychoanalysis, Eastern philosophy, sex, and veganism, showing how the hippies still have a lot to teach us about our wellbeing.
