Namaste the Hard Way: A Daughter’s Journey to Find Her Mother on the Yoga Mat by Sasha Brown-Worsham
Requirements: EPUB Reader 11.17 MB
Overview: My mother used to chant in Sanskrit in her study before sunrise every morning. Though she died when I was 16-22 years ago-I always hear her voice that way. Off-key, but strangely hypnotic, the language both complicated and pure, reverberating around our house.
For a kid growing up in Southern Ohio – Bible belt country – the sound was both alluring and repellent.
"What’s your mother doing?" my friends would ask.
"Being a weirdo," I told them.
And so encapsulates the coming of age story of Sasha Brown, a transplanted tween plunked in the middle of the Bible Belt with a macrobiotic hippy mom and a ribs-eating dad. A writer whose work has appeared in The New York Times, Redbook, and Cosmopolitan, Brown’s prose is heartfelt and hilarious, revealing her quest to find her way as two worlds collide. While other moms were at Bible study, her mom was studying Sanskrit; while other were finding friendship at Tupperware parties, her mom was finding enlightenment at the ashram. And when her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, she chose a healthy diet and yoga over aggressivechemo.
When her mother died, Brown ran as far away from yoga as she could until a running injury left her needing the very thing she was running from.
