Mindfulness and yoga are widely said to improve mental and physical health, and booming industries have emerged to teach them as secular techniques. This movement is typically traced to the 1970s, but in reality it began a century earlier. Mind Cure traces the process by which practices like meditation, mindfulness, and yoga moved from the religious fringes of American culture to the medical and psychological mainstream, revealing previously overlooked
confluences of Buddhist, Hindu, medical, African American, and women's history in America.
