One of the barometers of main-stream popular culture in the United States is the cover story in Time magazine. In 1975, a cover story reported on “The TM Craze,”referring to the rising popularity of the Transcendental Meditation movement. In 1987, the cover featured actress Shirley MacLaine holding a quartz crystal, with the description, “A strange mix of spirituality and superstition is sweeping across the country.” In 1996, a cover story addressed the question, “Can prayer, faith and spirituality really improve your physical health? A growing and surprising body of scientific evidence says they can.”In 2001, the “Power of Yoga” was on the cover. In 2003, we learned about “The science of meditation.” By 2014, the cover story was on “The mindful revolution: The science of ﬁnding focus in a stress-out,multitasking culture.”
