Working out some ideas here:
Individualism is the root of all evil.
Individualism is rooted in whiteness.
Both individualism + whiteness are crucial for making neoliberal capitalism operate.
As Ehrenreich points out, the move to "wellness" + "mindfulness" are steeped in a kind of uber-individualism.
"I may not be able to do much about grievous injustice in the world, at least not by myself or in very short order, but I can decide to increase the weight on the leg press machine by twenty pounds and achieve that within a few weeks,”
"exercise is now closer to a form of labor: measured, timed, and financially incentivized by employers and insurers."…
But, Ehrenreich's analysis doesn't take into account whiteness. So, I wonder, whither whiteness in the wellness/meditation arena?
