News of Amanda Eller rescued after more than two weeks lost in a forest in Maui is truly amazing. But what makes this happy ending an inspiring story is her focus on living.
In one of the interviews, she stated "There were times of total fear and loss and wanting to give up, and it did come down to life and death, and I had to choose.” Her youth, at age 35, her general health as a yoga teacher, her knowledge of healing touch as a trained physical therapist, and knowledge of meditation to remain calm and centered are also contributing factors for her staying alive. Being lost in a forest where she found water and plants to survive all makes this a truly great and inspiring story.
