'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.
