Praise

“This richly researched archaeology of the counterculture places health at its core, showing how ideas of healing and therapy were inextricably bound up with the era’s spiritual cravings and erotic politics. Every chapter scintillates with unexpected connections and startling insights.”
— Simon Reynolds, author of Rip It Up and Start Again and Energy Flash

”A rich tapestry of mind-altering influences of the counterculture that shaped our aspirations. Enjoy the ride. I did.” — Patrick Holford, author of The Optimum Nutrition Bible

“A huge range of interviews, intelligent analysis and concise, sympathetic observation make this a compulsively readable but also impressively erudite account of this endlessly fascinating subject.” - Jeremy Gilbert

“A riot of a read. Ingram’s exploration of how psychoanalysis and psychedelics fused with meditation, mysticism and spiritual awakening to oil the cogs of the contemporary wellness economy is both forensic and radically irreverent.” - Financial Times
