9781907486395: Battersea Park Road to Paradise

In her bestseller The Battersea Park Road to Enlightenment, Isabel Losada set out with a modest aim - 'to be absurdly happy every day'. But a few years down the road, she's stuck in a pothole. No job (not good). No man (very not good). Nothing has turned out as she'd intended. There's only one way to get out of the hole: throw out the ideas that landed her there and start over. So, using the ancient Chinese tradition of the five elements of life - Metal, Fire, Wood, Water, Earth - Isabel breaks her own life down to its essentials to explore five areas of inner and outer change. She calls in a feng shui consultant to discover that her bedroom decor is 'draining the father' (whatever that means)...takes a motivational workshop to experience the power of 'doing'...turns a silent meditation retreat into an exercise in unrelenting 'being'...sits at the feet of a Brixton guru to examine the nature of mind...and undertakes a shamanic ritual in the Amazon to part company with her own mind completely. As rich as the book is in the particulars of a life hilariously lived, it's also universal: readers can see themselves in Isabel's experience and look at their lives with new eyes.

About the Author:

Isabel Losada, actress, broadcaster and author, lives on the Battersea Park Road in London. Her books include The Battersea Park Road to Enlightenment, For Tibet and With Love and Men! - each one a joyful exploration on the theme of living life to the full. Isabel can be found through her website, www.isabellosada.com, and her fan page on Facebook, where she chats to readers about subjects raised in her books. The house is always full of visitors and the neighbour's ginger cat visits daily.

Review:

'Engaging, lyrical and courageous, Isabel Losada is an intrepid explorer of human development and spirituality. She dives into weird and fantastic situations like a freefall parachutist and gives us valuable and inspiring insights. Her journey and her honesty will make you laugh and touch your heart. This is rock'n'roll of the soul. I love this book.' William Bloom 'The Battersea Park Road to Paradise is a funny, well written, warm and intelligent book which made this reader smile broadly. Leading us through the labyrinth of new age spirituality, mad-cap Feng Shui consultants, gung-ho American motivation gurus, the wonderful contemporary teacher Mooji, and a brave hallucinogenic excursion to South America, Isabel Losada proves herself a fantastic prose-stylist and the most eloquent of guides. It's a book which grapples with the big questions with the lightest of touches. If there's any justice in the world, it'll give Eat, Pray Love a run for its money because it's a better book in every way.' From Piers Moore Ede (Author of 'All Kinds of Magic' and 'Honey and Dust')
