Overview

Jersey Yogi: The Unintentional Enlightenment of an Uptight Man by Jim Starr

Like so many men in Matawan, NJ, Jim Starr was essentially normal . . . doing his best, working for a living, paying bills, raising a family, and looking forward to the weekend bbq with friends. But what he was called to do following a devastating sports injury was so far from normal, it left him forever changed.

Jersey Yogi: The Unintentional Enlightenment of an Uptight Man is about a journey to the source, and further still - a journey to the source of the source. Jim, with his friend Don, took a chance to find the very source of the holy Ganges River in India without a guide, without understanding the language, and without anything to prove other than that he could do it.

And on his journey through India, a culture he could barely comprehend, Jim faced a life or death struggle . . . and found the source within himself.

This is a beautiful memoir about a man who was injured by playing a favorite sport, received rolfing treatment for the constant pain, and unintentionally found inner peace and enlightenment on his journey to learn to become a certified Rolfer. I enjoyed reading about Mr. Starr's journey and learning about chanting, meditation, and seva.  I personally am not well versed with these activities, but am interested in learning more. The practice of "letting go" that Mr. Starr constantly refers to is a practicum that many individuals attempt to achieve on their own. One can learn a lot by reading this book in order to slowly progress to the letting go phase.  Spirituality plays a major part in this book, yet I believe it happened upon Mr. Starr  unintentionally.  I would recommend this book to anyone who is stressed or interested in spirituality. The events in this book may be new to some readers, but I highly suggest to keep an open mind and dive into the deeper message.  I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.   Happy Reading!
