5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully balanced, honest, funny and a little odd!, 22 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Battersea Park Road to Paradise (Paperback)
I should first express a bias - I am a long term fan of Ms. Losada's. What she does is not always easy; to explore personal experiences of abstract, spiritual, philosophical and emotional concepts without being either too dry and academic, or too personal and embarrassingly revelatory is difficult. To do it with humour and honesty requires a fine touch. I LOVED this book! I can think of very few people who wouldn't enjoy reading it, even if they came to different conclusions at the end of it than I did.
I think this is a fitting sequel to The Battersea Park Road to EnlightenmentThe Battersea Park Road to Enlightenment, which I would also urge people to read. I was particularly interested to read about her experiences with the Ashaninka tribe in Peru and her references to The Continuum Concept The Continuum Concept (Arkana), (much loved by homeschooling/attachment-practising families)by Jean Liedloff, who died earlier this year.
I found this a fascinating book, and it has given me new and different areas to investigate. Thank you, Isabel!

Dear Ginny Black,
Thank you so much for this kind and enthusiastic review. Yes, as you say, what I try to do is not always easy and I end up being very vulnerable to the accusation of being self indugent when I go out there and try and do things things that will be of interest to everyone. I'm so pleased that you don't find me too personal or revalatory. As you say - it's hard to try and be as honest and open as possible and share myself without it ending up just feeling 'me, me.'

I'm so glad you picked up on the 'Continuum Concept' aspects of my time with the Ashaninka - an aspect of the book that no-one else has picked up on. Yup, just as Jean says, I never heard a child cry or a raised voice. Alas how far from the parenting I see around me in Battersea every day. But her principles are hard to apply without a community around you aren't they? Anyway thank you SO much for enjoying another of the books and for taking the time to write this thoughtful and encouraging review. x i
