In her best seller 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 audiobook is in the particulars of a life hilariously lived, it's also universal: Listeners can see themselves in Isabel's experience and look at their lives with new eyes.
