Living as a River - new book by Bodhipaksa

the proud parent -
Bodhipaksa with his new book

If you're a fan of Bodhipaksa's work on Wildmind, or of his meditation books and CDs, you'll love ‘Living as a River’, his new book on embracing change.  The blurb asks “What happens when we embrace the flow of life?”, and replies, very simply - “ We stop suffering”.

In Living as a River, Bodhipaksa conducts an investigation into the nature of self, with an eloquent blend of current science and time-honoured spiritual insights intended to free us from the fear of impermanence in a world defined by change.

Jack Kornfield  has described it as "An interesting, lively, and genuinely illuminating teaching of Dharma."

The book has its own website,, where you can read excerpts from the book.  In ‘Being the river’, the chapter on the Water Element, Bodhipaksa discusses how water is the archetype of all change: all things flow, and we ourselves are not static and separate entities, but eddies in the stream of life.
