The subtitle of this book is "144,000 ways to eternal ecstatic bliss" and it is a book quite unlike any other. As the spiel reads: "What happens when two mothers reroute their brains, do their homework and carve out a new world groove? Think of a big A4, hyper-colour Jackie Annual coffee table book for grown-ups and you may be half way to realizing the full glory of the world's first rightbrained book."
Why right-brained? Because our analytical and often robotic left brains are not conducive to experiencing ecstatic bliss. We need to tap into our expansive, intuitive right brains for this and the non-linear nature of the book helps this, as does the psychedelically stunning artwork throughout by Shazzie and Shakiba Mohseni.
The authors, both internationally recognized raw food promoters, treat some heavy subjects in a refreshingly light way. The book contains 150 pages of information (on topics ranging from superfoods to urine therapy), musings (on such things as being a mother, being present, love and sex, and breaking free from cultural programming), raw food recipes (especially cake recipes), poems and photo stories.
And at the back, the authors’ extensive dictionary will make you laugh and make you think at the same time with such words as hilareality (when life is hilarious), sheeporexia (one who chooses to eat foods they know are bad for them just to make others feel comfortable) and spiriduality (someone who thinks they’re living a spiritual life but is so egotistical about it they’re still very much living in duality).
