Additional Information

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.

An easy book to immerse yourself in, largely because of the honesty and humor. Jim takes a journey into deeper and deeper aspects of spirituality, healing and embodiment by following his life's guidance. It's delightful the way he laughs at his ego and takes you with him on his journey. It's a fun read, as well as exploring deep, meaningful subjects.
Not really 4 stars, not really 5 stars........
I have to admit that I am fascinated by these kind of experiences. They're not the kind of thing I experience, except in a much smaller way. Perhaps it means that my life doesn't seem to change as much, but I take smaller steps than Mr. Starr.
The phenomenon of the guru doesn't make a lot of sense to Americans. Those who think they know are often engaged in hero worship rather than understanding that the guru is more a doorway than a destination. Of course, gurus have a pretty checkered history once they mix in with Americans. A fair number of them have been seduced by our materialism after a lifetime of somewhat unavoidable poverty and austerities. But to be fair, even in our western beliefs, angels were seduced by the flesh (and monsters resulted). On the other side, someone once said householders, those who are living in the world rather than in peaceful temples, could be considered warriors because of the constant... Read more
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book explores the author’s life from childhood to adulthood. It delves into his own description of his parents’ parenting style that resulted in the raising of a narrow-minded and self-centered only child who does not have a tolerance for anything that is outside of his own beliefs and norms. That is, until he attended his first Rolfing (a New Age type of healing massage) session. After this first session, he felt all of the pain that he had been experiencing for years, leave his body. He also began his quest to become a Rolfer. During his pursuit to becoming a Rolfer, he had to travel to India and to California to learn from his Swami and other educators in the field. These educators taught him how to channel his bodily energy into something positive and how to “let go” of things and issues that inhibited him in his past. He also had to learn how to accept what he used to be afraid... Read more
