Who knew a bottle of wine and a Cosmo quiz could change a woman’s life? According to the credible psychoanalysts at Cosmopolitan Magazine, Holly’s leading a shallow and purposeless existence. In an attempt to prove the quiz-makers wrong, she sets out to get in touch with her spiritual side. The only thing standing in her way is a boatload of neuroses and an affinity for cold beer and junk food.
Being the housewife of a workaholic and a frazzled mother of three, she figures true enlightenment is impossible since relocating to a mountaintop to live in monk-like solitude isn’t exactly practical. While perusing the Self-Help section at her local bookstore, Holly comes across a workbook called Discover Your Inner Goddess. Her interest is piqued. Although she has a sneaking suspicion that her inner goddess ran away screaming a long time ago, she decides to buy the book anyway, despite her inner cynic.
All skepticism aside, Holly commits to the lessons in the workbook, finding each of them to be more ridiculously uncomfortable than the one before it. She writes about weakness and fear, a colon-cleanse, yoga and really spicy curry, just to name a few. The exercises are hard on her emotions, not to mention her digestive system. By journaling through lessons written by a lofty guru, Holly takes you along on the bumpy ride of her newly found spiritual path, stumbling over her own feet every step of the way. From exposing inner demons, to learning what it truly means to be a goddess, will this endeavor help her to grow into the woman that a magazine told her she’s too shallow to become?
