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, coffee addict, exercise allergic, and self confessed sceptic as she sets out on the road to enlightenment.

Beginning with an Insight seminar where a hundred people with name badges learn to ‘share’, Isabel journey’s 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.

Press Reviews

Isabel Losada navigates her way through the eccentric highways and byways of the new age and human potential movement with scepticism, humour and interrogative open-mindedness. Candid thought-provoking, sassy and very very funny.
— The Daily Telegraph
Isabel has achieved the perfect combination of humour, poignancy and intellectual rigour.
— The Statesman

Reader Reviews

Whilst written with a seemingly light touch, there is depth and acute observation throughout each chapter. A fantastic read and a brilliant contribution to modern social history. Highly recommended.
