Mariel Hemingway. actress and author of Out Came The Sun
Raised on Australia’s Gold Coast, Mellara Gold moved to Hollywood to become an actress. After a few film and TV roles, two failed marriages, a thankfully failed suicide attempt, and an incapacitating back injury, she healed herself through yoga, meditation, and living in awareness. Now a highly respected Bay Area yoga teacher and a regular contributor to Elephant Journal and other publications, Mellara shares teachings, insights, and heartfelt stories of her journey to wholeness and a life worth living.

A Life Worth Living: Mellara Gold’s new book on “mindfulness, yoga, and living in awareness” is my favorite because she employed a style that I used in my book, as well. By using vignettes of memoir, prescriptive information, and a bit of research, her book takes what could have been dry and didactic information and makes it a literal page-turner. Her childhood could very well have been a movie, and she takes you through her learning process in marriage, motherhood, and studying under Channa Dassanayaka, who also supplies the invocation at the book’s opening. This book is totally worth checking out. Just click on the photo to read more.
