BOOK REVIEW

  FIRST THERE IS A MOUNTAIN -
        ELIZABETH KADETSKY

The author of this book, Elizabeth Kadetsky suffered from a mysterious pain.  The only relief she seemed to find was in her Yoga class.  Elizabeth learned to meditate when she was seven.  She tried an interesting experiment when she was very young. She wondered if it was possible to think of nothing, or was it only possible to think of the act of thinking of nothing?

The thing that Elizabeth liked best about Yoga was the fact that it demanded something from your mind.  She stated that it required a concentration that made it impossible for her to think about things that were bothering her.

Elizabeth became aware of the Yoga institute of B.K.S. Iyengar.  She was finally invited to study there.  She found Iyengar a demanding teacher.  Through Yoga Elizabeth discovered a spiritual discipline that she could not compare to anything else.  She also learned much about her complicated life.

Elizabeth Kadetsky has written an inspiring, sincere memoir.  It is interesting to follow her journey through the mystical world of Yoga and read about her studies with a master in this area.  This is a good one to add to your reading list!
