Hilarious and, naturally, enlightening

Isabel Losada explores the many means through which people try to attain physical, emotional and spiritual growth and healing, often taking a hunorous slant on her experiences. She goes wholeheartedly into each new adventure and expertly gives her reader the step-by-step process she experiences, how it feels, if it worked, all while making you laugh out loud! My favorite was the colonic cleansing! Hilarious!

Made me laugh out loud and it's life changing too...

I realised when I was browsing around that this was the book I'd heard brilliantly read by the author on BBC Radio 4's 'Book of the Week' when I was in the UK. It's even better in the full version and funnier. I had to buy three copies and I have to give two to my friends too. Just buy it. Isabel Losada is brilliant. And she made me laugh out loud too. Not many authors can do this. Fantastic stuff.

absolutely fabulous

this book was a fantastic find for me and gave me a great deal of joy. isabel's approach is wonderful, her mixture of healthy cynicism and her spirit of adventure combine to make a very inspiring also appeals to the reader in a way that its quite an intimate book to read, you feel like you are following isabel on the journey. at times highly amusing but also searching this is a book i've returned to again and again getting more and more from it each time.everyone that i've loaned it to,and there have been many, cynics and spiritual people alike have returned it to me having enjoyed it alot. its a kind of writing i would like to see alot more of, accessible but not vacuous, this is a must read for anyone who is looking for a bit more than the mundane everyday..go on challenge yourself, i promise its incredibly rewarding. if you dont believe me check out isabel's website, you'll see how many people are hooked!

Inspirational, Like three books in one

I read three books here.First there was the actual Battersea Park Road journey with all its interesting and sometimes quirky methods of self discovery that its possible for anyone to benefit from. even if you don't do any of these courses yourself, the book is like a surrogate weekend.The second book was an insight into the authors mind itself. I found myself becoming the author both mentally and spiritually- I felt all the humour, the sadness and the confusion. I was genuinely moved moved to keep reading and find out what more she would reveal about herself.The third book related to my own desire to fill in the blanks. It enabled me to transport myself into situations that I would never in a million years dream of doing and feeling the benefit of many of the outcomes.This book is utterly inspirational!

Coming Alive

It's a funny thing, but the person you are probably least likely to know is…yourself. Isabel to the rescue: this marvellous book is about achieving self-awareness through taking life-changing seminars—some run by batty spiritual specialists. In this hilarious book, she runs the gamut from a Tantric Sex weekend to a Goddess workshop, from earthly encounters with Angels to a spot of Rolfing. While being skeptical about all these courses, she comes away with new—and very useful—knowledge. My favourite part is when, baring herself (not for the first time in the book) in her quest for the ultimate massage, she attains a near-mystical plane through hot stone massage—and comes to the revelation she has a special connection with stones, always did have. Losada calls that 'accidental enlightenment.' While you may laugh your head off as you join the author on these romps, this book ultimately has a higher purpose—it's about the power of transformation. Losada gets herself out of a rut by turning her brain around—and encourages you to do the same. The book is hard to pigeonhole—and that's the delight of it. It mixes laugh-a-minute humour with serious self-exploration and delicious doses of romance and rapture. And impulsiveness. And curiosity. It's a book about coming alive, about living life to the fullest. For anybody in search of themselves, or whose universe feels out of joint, this book will make you feel a whole lot better—and give you lots of ideas along the way.
