Living as a River

Finding Fearlessness in the Face of Change
Bodhipaksa
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.

“Reading Bodhipaksa’s writing is often like reading poetry. It is simply a beautiful experience. As I was reading, I felt like I was dissolving—and when finished I felt a serenity as if I’d spent a whole weekend in meditation. And with this deep calm, I found myself much more able to weather the surprises and challenges in life.”

“Over the years I have come to feel that changing the way we bring our children into the world may do more than anything else to bring about the peaceful, mutually supportive, compassionate society we desire. I was therefore just delighted when this guide to applying the wisdom of yoga's sister science Ayurveda to every stage of pregnancy came our way. What I would have given for this book when I was a yoga-mama-to-be! There was nothing like it available at the time, and I see very few books on the topic even now. I love the sweet illustrations and the warm, well-informed guidance Margo provides to pregnant women seeking a healthier, happier experience of pregnancy, and a safe, positive birth experience. It makes me happy to think about a new generation of well-nurtured babies being born to their radiant, relaxed yoga mamas.”

Alan Watts
Life is the ultimate game of hide and seek—and the good news is that you’re it!

“To me, Alan Watts is the epitome of a great teacher. There are a lot of teachings that are present in most of the wisdom traditions, but when I listen to Watts, I actually get them at a deep level. And the most important one for me is how we can cherish and revere life by not taking it so seriously.”

“Oh what a fantastic program! My biggest takeaway is to remember that simple living is a beautiful way to live. I certainly try to keep that in mind when I think that food from my favorite restaurant sounds better than the salad I could put together with veggies from my own garden. This program inspires me!”

“Danny Dreyer’s amazing program combines t’ai chi principles with running and focuses on the meditative aspects of the sport. Before I began incorporating ChiRunning movement principles, I suffered from tremendous knee pain during and after long runs. Now I run half marathons with no knee pain whatsoever.”

“In ‘Abiding in Mindfulness,’ Joseph Goldstein goes through the Satipatthana Sutta—Buddha’s own summary of his teachings—one line and sometimes even one word at a time, unwrapping and illustrating the text with personal anecdotes, teaching stories, and poetry from all ages and cultures. Joseph’s ability to respond to this text in almost rapturish detail gives us a taste of what life would look like if we too could see the world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wildflower.”
