We are blessed to live at a time when virtually all of the world’s practices from all of the world’s cultures and spiritual traditions are freely available to us. In fact, we have so many different kinds of practices it can be downright intimidating: Which should I do? How many should I do? How do I know they’re working? Where do I begin? How am I even going to find time for all this?
This is what makes this week’s discussion so important, as Terry Patten and Ken Wilber take an in-depth look at their book Integral Life Practice: A 21st-Century Blueprint for Physical Health, Emotional Balance, Mental Clarity, and Spiritual Awakening. ILP is a highly distilled, easily customizable, and radically inclusive approach to practice, based on the most comprehensive map of human potentials we currently have. It is neither “map” nor “territory”, but the vehicle by which we find, refine, and deliver our unique gifts to the world.
