Brigid Delaney – “Wellmania”

In a world in which you are expected to have it all, we are told contentment is just around the corner provided we are disciplined enough in following a regime to find a sense of wholeness. Once the domain of the hippy generation, a whole industry based around new-age health and spiritual practices has increased in popularity, an industry that often feeds off personal insecurities and compels people to embark on quite extreme acts in the aim to obtain a sense of personal perfection.

To help as to understand the “wellness” phenomena, journalist Brigid Delaney is with us to talk about her new book “Wellmania” where she tested extreme diets, yoga, group psychology sessions and spiritual retreats to tell us how these processes worked for her.
