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.
Currently residing in Colorado Jim Starr is an author, philosopher, certified Rolfer teacher, and avid student of the human condition. He's also a computer programmer hospice volunteer and (very) amateur musician. Jim plays lots of handball and has won the Colorado state championship in his age division numerous times.
