Flowing with the Go: A Jiu-Jitsu Journey of the Soul, by Elena Stowell
A double award winner: 2012 Silver eLit Awards winner in the Aging/Death/Dying Category, 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist in the Inspirational Category, and 2013 Bronze Medal Living Now Book Awards winner in Grieving/Death/Dying!
For what seemed like a lifetime and probably was, Elena Stowell wandered aimlessly in a personal prison of self-doubt and lack of purpose after her fifteen-year-old daughter Carly died suddenly before her eyes. By some combination of miracle and necessity, she walked into a Seattle area Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gym and rolled for the first time in her life. Through that experience and others that followed, Elena discovered the tenets of the martial art form and healing were the same. With a ripping raw honesty and refreshing balance of humor and introspection, Elena’s story reminds us to never stop panning for the gold within ourselves.
