The Battersea Park Road to Enlightenment
'You know those people who always radiate cheerful optimism? Nauseating aren't they? I want to become one of those. I want to find out how to live life completely, abundantly, joyfully, stupidly. This is my quest. Enlightenment.' So proclaims Isabel Losada, Starbucks addict, exercise allergic and self-confessed sceptic as she sets out on the road to enlightenment. Beginning with an Insight seminar where hundred people with name badges discuss their 'inner beauty', Isabel journeyed through a gruelling course of 'Rolfing' nude Goddess workshops, a weekend of tantric sex ('Yes! Yes! Yes!') and a reincarnation session, not to mention a spot of colonic irrigation. Irreverent yet open-minded, funny and always honest, "The Battersea Park Road to Enlightenment" is also moving and ultimately illuminating. For anyone who has ever been tempted to dip a toe in the waters of self-discovery, Isabel Losada plunges you straight in.

Our customer reviews
A friend had been raving about Isabel Losada's books, and since I wanted to learn more about the subject matter, 'The Battersea Park Road to Enlightenment' seemed like a good place to start. I loved it, and have read it twice! Not only did I gain a great deal of knowledge, but Isabel's quirky writing style made the book a very entertaining read as well. I'd recommend this book to anyone, but especially to those who might be trying to shift gears or view life a little differently.show moreby Liza Farachdel
