Julia Anderson Root (c.1840-1904) was born in Maine and died in Oakland, California. She was one of the pioneer workers of the New Thought movement on the West Coast of the United States. Root studied mental healing in California with Miranda R. Rice (1884) and then with Mary H. Plunkett (1887). Both Rice and Plunkett were students of Mary Baker Eddy's who had left the Christian Science movement by the time they taught Root. In late 1884 she published Healing Power of Mind, a book on the subject of mental healing. The book spawned a career that would see Root teach, lecture, and heal all across the United States, including a lecture in 1897 at a metaphysical college run by another of Eddy's former students, Clara E. Choate.
