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, livingasariver.com
, 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.
