Buddhist Psychology: Our experience of life is described as a river that we embody, that we are a part of, rather than simply living in. Awareness is ever-present, as we learn to become mindful of our experiences without becoming lost in them. Our state of mind determines our relationship to the world around us. Our practice, therefore, becomes one of quieting the mind, opening the heart, and being present in order to touch all that arises with the spirit of compassion.
