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 Enlightenment
The 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.

Review for Living as a River
I didn't know what to expect from this book and I am finding it to be deeply helpful on so many levels of comprehension regarding consciousness, understanding how we are, really awareness and not the body and so many other aspects of being, what it is and what it isn't. I really don't have words to describe the effect it has had for me.
