  • Description or summary of the book: To face reality is to embrace change; to resist change is to suffer. This is the liberating insight that unfolds with Living as a River. A masterful investigation of the nature of self, this eloquent blend of current science and time-honored spiritual insight is meant to free us from the fear of impermanence in a world defined by change. 'An interesting, lively, and genuinely illuminating teaching of dharma.'-Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart: A Guide Through the Perils and Promises of Spiritual Life 'At a time when it's increasingly challenging to find clear and honest direction on the spiritual path, Living as a River offers contemporary insight into an ancient practice and wise counsel we can trust. This book is both beautifully written and useful to all serious seekers.' -Mariana Caplan, PhD, author of Eyes Wide Open: Cultivating Discernment on the Spiritual Path and Halfway Up the Mountain: The Error of Premature Claims to EnlightenmentThe primary vehicle for this journey is Buddhism's traditional Six Element Practice, a deconstructive process of deep reflection that helps us let go of the belief in a separate, static self-the root of unhappiness. Bodhipaksa takes readers through a systematic yet poetic analysis of the self that supports the realization of: A sense of spaciousness and expansiveness that transcends the limitations of the physical body Profound gratitude, awe, and a feeling of belonging as we witness the extent of our connectedness with the universe Freedom from the psychological burden caused by clinging to a false identity The relaxed experience of 'consciousness, pure and bright'Engrossing and incisive, Living as a River is at once an empowering guide and a meditative practice we can turn to again and again to overcome our fear of change and align joyfully with the natural unfolding of creation.
