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.”

“I picked a letter that embodied a quality I wanted to express in my life, and changed the way I wrote it according to Vimala’s 40-day program. Since I began, I have become more healthy, fit, and connected to my creativity and spiritual practice. Is it all because I changed my handwriting? Well, I don’t intend to go back to writing the way I did before!”

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.”
